My duffle bag, packed with clothes, raingear, fleece jacket and shoes, with room to spare for my shower kit.  Boots, binoculars, maps/guidebooks and other gear next.  We might reach escape velocity yet.

  1. Do you have days built into your schedule in case you don’t make as many miles as you think you will? Just wondering because there is one day in Colorado you can’t do in one day! Limon, Co is two hours out of Denver and it is six hours from Denver to the town of Gunnison which is and hour or so east of the Black Canyon (made this part of the trip just last year). Moab is some hours beyond that. Several mountain passes and back country roads (all beautiful) are involved. Just hoping you have some extra days padding the trip!

    • Hi Gail,

      Thanks for the tip! Yes, we have plenty of extra days built-in. We had to start somewhere just to get an idea about travel times, but fully expect some days will take longer than the map says and we’ll be changing our minds about how/where to travel, too, I’m sure.

  2. So great to learn about your trip last night when you emailed Dan! Looking forward to following your adventures on our “big US map” on the wall of our kitchen that marks our 3 month cross country adventure 9-15-98 to 12-150-98! What fun – safe travels!!
