Going into September we knew it would be a bit expensive, especially since we didn’t have that many shows lined up. One thing we didn’t anticipate was how mentally exhausting it would be. Curtiss and I quickly learned that a 3-hour drive really meant a 4-hour drive and a 6-hour drive really meant an 8-hour drive. And 8-hour drives got really old quickly, and not parking until it was dark outside was even less fun. Between bathroom stops and dog-walks we are s-l-o-w.
In addition to long days on the road, we recognized how cooking while traveling was not always the best use of our time, which meant we ate out quite a bit, or ate pre-cooked meals.
Despite it being exhausting, we of course had a blast! In one month we were in Lake Michigan, the Smoky Mountains, the Gulf of Florida, and could see the Rocky Mountains by our end destination in Colorado.
Here is where we traveled in September :
We covered 4,385 miles…which is the same distance as driving from Presque Isle, Maine to San Francisco, California to Gallup, New Mexico. (We always like to compare our mileage to how many times we could have traversed the United States).
Here are all the places we stayed:
As always, if there are any questions about traveling whether it be about where to stay, how to get somewhere, how to plan or what it’s like having two big dogs with us, don’t hesitate to ask below in the comment box OR e-mail us at PayGasNotRent@gmail.com.
