A Month of Milestones

IMG_1390A little over a month has passed since taking on this escapade. A few travel milestones in seeing America:

10 National Parks visited: 6 for camping

5 State Parks: 4 for camping

2 National Forests: 2 for camping

Day One: Disorientation

IMG_0739Somewhere between turning on my sides and stretching straight out—only to note that my sleeping pad is about four inches shorter than my body—the thought did occur: I wonder how many nights in a hotel I would get if I put this tent and sleeping bag on Craigslist? Honesty Folks!…that’s what I’m sharing.
