Road Trip Series: Where To Go

Welcome back to the road trip series!  Today I’ll be sharing all the things you should do or see on your road trip.  Ok, not all of them, but the things I’ve done and things I would like to do.

Most of these are outdoorsy things because that’s what I enjoy doing.  I’ll let you know which I’ve done and which I haven’t, as well.  You’ll probably want to add some of the USA bucket list destinations to your trip while you’re at it.

You can see all of my USA bucket lists here (and a few other countries)!

As of writing this, I’ve driven across the country, or halfway across the country, five times.  Yes, five. (Update, May 2018: I’m at nine now!)  The first was our Southwest road trip out to Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and back (I’m counting that as twice, each direction.)

Next was out to Utah for my new job.  The third trip, fourth and fifth time driving, was from Utah to Florida and back between jobs.  Plus, I’ve gone from Bullfrog to Vegas and Bullfrog to Jackson Hole.  I’ve spent so much time in the car the last year, it’s ridiculous.

That’s why I’m here to help you plan a road trip with this little series!  This is part one: what to do and figure out before you go.

After living in Utah (and the desert) for almost seven months, with at least five more this year, I’ve developed a few habits for traveling in the desert to stay a little safer.  It can be a little intimidating traveling through the desert, but I love it and want to share with you how to stay safe and prepared on a desert road trip.
