Steppenwolf keeps popping into my head “Get your motor running, head out on the highway” just that bit, well mainly that bit….. So where are we? We know where the trip starts and ends, we have a vehicle, we have flights, we know of places that we want to visit and we’ve got the tech and camera gear sorted. As of now however we have no definitive route and this would bother some people I think, but the more I think on it the more I like the no fixed agenda save for arrival and departure dates. It adds a nice unexpected nature to the trip, sure we will be in Montana and Oregon but the uncertainty of routes and roads not being open after winter closures means that exciting unplanned detours may happen, which means visiting places that don’t always figure on the tourist routes. Oh oh, now Born to be wild has been replaced by Duelling banjos!
Watch the trip almost live unfold on this blog, with pictures, maps, commentary and much more more.
If anyone knows of road closures or openings please let us know via comments on here, we will check on State road information and National Park sites most days, but local knowledge of areas and roads will be very helpful.
