chucky cheese Did all the dream trips. When my son Colby the cheese had school days off we would throw our gear in the Jeep and take off. I would research areas and things to see and do for the amount of time we had. Never had a schedule or reservations just had a goal to get to and return. Took mostly state roads and saw alot of neat stuff. Amazing is all I have to say. From Roswell NM to Lincoln NM, Tombstone, Smokey Mtns. up over the top to GA, AK up through the Ozarks, Civilwar battlefields, Bigfootville in Texarcana, all of FLA, CA up the coast, LA to NY, NY to CA. Stopped at every cheesy roadside trap. The worlds largest ball of string, The mystery spot, The house of mud, Pres. Clintons favorite beef jerky and worlds largest water melon,hillbilly village and the list goes on. Best trips I ever had. A four banger 2005 manual TJ. Had it to the floor but I did 80 mph on I-10 across Texas. Used 4 high in the ice on the mountain roads. It was the best of times. That was one of my goals in life. Just drive the vehicle you love withno agenda and see America. They were dream trips! Oh yea, we stopped at a park that had a concert in LA and this dirty country hippy looking broad kept trying to give me potato chips out of this bag that looked like it came out of a dumpster. I kept declining saying no thankyou but I appreciate the offer. All of a sudden she gets pissed and hollers "Hey yous ain't from arounds here is ya?" I asked "Why do you say that?" She replies "Cause yous got all your teeth!" True story.

Seriously check out the link I posted earlier. Hopefully it will open some eyes. Potentially anywhere you go can be dangerous, don't believe everything you watch on fox/CNN etc.

The Rubicon, Death Valley, Oceano, Big Bear, Shasta, Rainer, the list goes on and on.
My dream trip would be to drive to Moab and work my way up to Washington state. I would do at least 1 trail run every day and head back on PCH hitting a few of the locations above on the way back. Should be able to do it using less than 2 weeks of vacation.

Years ago my wife and I had the privilage to spend some time in Grants New Mexico. We drove my Jeep Commando up Mt Taylor very near to the top but the snow was too deep, fantastic fun and the views where awesome...I would like to vistit that area again, probably can't get up to those mountain views any more

Google maps don't do a very good job of showing the trails in Moab. There are so many trails and they are widely dispersed. There is a bunch right by the city, but a lot more elsewhere including the La Sal Mountains (which was great). I tried to look at a few, but it doesn't do justice.

Trans-Am Trail(TAT)
Complete set is $372.00 with 4,177 miles from Tennessee to Oregon
(or you may purchase individual states separatly)

I found this several years ago, and have wanted to to this so bad on a bike, but I think a jeep would be awesome.

Well..........

I retire next week (Feb 29) after 43-yrs with a Defense Contractor

Purchased my retirement vehicle (2012 JKU-S, Moded her) and wanted to do a coat-2-coast trip, with no schedule

However, with the price of gas climbing by the day, and much more expensive out West, it's taken the wind out of my sails

So, time and the economy will tell
