If you pass thru New Mexico and into Texas, we can have a mini YARC!

Ditto for if you get to the northern end of the Mississippi River! Smile

Walden, I remember you fantasizing about this in another thread, about a year ago.
Make It So! and keep us updated. Smile

tx2sturgis,
I’m passing through Texas on the diagonal. About Lubbock southeast through Nacadoches.

Northern end of the Mississippi? I’ll be more like Natchez to Memphis. I got my stops planned and markers on Google map.

Don't know when that will be but I am back near Lubbock. I was in New Mexico for a couple of weeks. 

Depending on where you will be staying and for how long, I might be able to come say hello.

Walden:
I was thinking purely after your core trip. Smile

You'll be in the center of the country, so it'll be Wander Time.
I've driven part of the northern part of that scenic roadway along the Mississippi, and it is quite pretty. Flooded right now, but still pretty. Smile

The Twin Cities are (allegedly) rather kewl, tourist wise. I've been there 3 times doing contract jobs, and never really got out much, other than birding (even pre-car-accident I was never into noisy stuff).

You could drift up to New England, maybe even into Canada.
Lots of options. Smile

Cool stuff along the Mississippi...
St Genevieve, MO. Pretty darn old
There is a ferry to take you to
Chester, IL, Popeye’s home town.
Farther up there was a truck stop near quad city’s - lots of cool trucks - free museum.
Fulton, Illinois a couple museums and authentic wind mill. Cool old town - do the walking tour.
Lots of scenery
Dubuque was very cool. Lots of little places to go back to if time allows.
There were some nice river walks and parks to enjoy. St. Louis wasn’t too bad to get past on a Sunday.

Kaylee,
Hang on, you got an idea there. Where do you live?
I wanted to do a Little House on the Prairie tour. Going to see the Laura Ingalls wilder spots. Have to be next summer though. I got to get back to Texas in the fall and be a Winter Texan, in the Deep South. Then meeting a friend for Big Bend. After that, I want to visit S Dakota (DeSmet), Walnut Grove (Minnesota), Springfield, Missouri.

Snikwhajm,
St Louis??? No way I value my life! I’ll travel within minutes of the US Mexico border, but St Louis, no thanks. I won’t even go back to my hometown in Michigan, too dangerous.
