Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I have a love/hate relationship with technology.  Since we’ve embarked on our year-long adventure along The Scenic Route—where limited space forces us to make choices as to what hardware we can bring with us and what stays at home—this ambivalence... Read more »

At this time of year traveling The Scenic Route comes with  an added bonus, namely discovering many unique holiday celebrations you’d never have otherwise known about.  That said, I think it’s a safe bet that none of them are more spectacular than the annual Christmas Eve bonfires atop... Read more »

Spend some time traveling The Scenic Route and you’ll find there’s no shortage of inspiring views. But if you’re driving a vehicle big enough to pull a good-sized trailer (like our 36-foot Kodiak 300BHSL), chances are you have some major blind spots regardless of whether you’re... Read more »

A little over 70 years ago today, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called December 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy.” Less than an hour after that historic speech, the U.S. Congress declared war on Japan, a move that marked America’s entry into World War II. While there are... Read more »

When it comes to peace-of-mind on the road, you might think you’re covered with your emergency road service card and your cell phone.

Had Abe Lincoln and Mark Twain ever gotten together, over lunch maybe, they would have had much to talk about.

While that headline may have you thinking we’re putting our faithful 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup out to pasture, let me explain.  When I said we were re-tiring our truck, I meant it quite literally.
