Back in 2008, Mariana and I drove around North America over a 2 month period. The trip was fast and awesome and we got to see a lot of cool things. I distinctly remember standing on a bridge in Chicago and recognizing the area from movies which just blew my mind.
10 Years later, Mariana and I are working on planning out our route for our next great adventure.
We plan to drive around North America in the opposite direction for 1 year. We are taking a year to travel slower and hopefully show our kids that travelling and exploring can be fun.
Below is a picture of places that we would like to go. The full map can be found here, Grand McDougall Family Adventure. If you can recommend more places to see, please let me know by email or in the comment section below.
Our plan is to drive our 2000 Triple E Commander RV.
We had not planned on buying an RV this big but when the opportunity presented itself we took it. We have taken it out for a week of travel and a camping trip but so far have not been out on a big trip. This trip will be a giant learning curve for us.
The RV is still unnamed. I have almost convinced the kids to call it the Fun, Adventure, Recreation & Travel mobile, F.A.R.T. mobile for short but Mariana is less than impressed.
My intention is to post on this blog once or twice a week to document the trip and keep all of our friends and family informed. I have added an email follow button to the side and would be happy if you subscribed.
Unfortunately I will not be posting on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I find those site way too distracting and would only pull me away from enjoying the trip and teaching the kids.
