Well this is meant to be a summary of our amazing American Adventures, But I don't think I can really summarise it that much as you all know we tried to fit in as much as we possibly could in our time there.
So we shall call it a review :)
Dave drove over 12,000 Miles ( 19,000kms) we went through 35 States and briefly crossed into Canada - for Niagara Falls. See Map above
We had 3 separate Hire Cars:
|Dodge - Charger|
We are very glad that we asked many "Forums" before we left, which would be better - Motorhome Or Hire Car & Motels. By the way about 90% said Hire Car! As America does not have RV Parks in every town like we do - they tend to be in out of the way places and are nothing like ours!
We were pretty happy with the way we pre-planned our first 2 weeks before we left, as this gave us enough time to get settled in before we had to make too many decisions - Where to go and what to do.
We really enjoyed our self driving tours where we could stop wherever we wanted. But having said that we are also very glad we did the coach tour of New York, Niagara Falls, Washington & Philadelphia. We would never have been able to fit these in and Driving in New York is Suicidal!
We have seen some amazing and very different things on our trip, I have put some of them into categories,
|Say no More!|
|This was in New York - I'm sure they don't enforce it!|
|Billboard - being towed around Vegas!|
|These signs were just about Everywhere!|
Road signs for Truckers:
Signs that made very good sense:
|Very Good advice!|
|I wouldn't want him to Cross!|
|Quad Bike in the back!|
|Massive 5th Wheelers!|
And as we liked to call them - Road Trains! Totally illegal in Australia.
How could we forget this one!
Here are some movie stars that we met - Ok As close as we got to any Movies Stars!
Unusual things we seen on our travels:
|Ready Set Go!|
|When Moving don't forget your Antlers!|
|Never seen a Motor Bike towed like this!|
|Heard about the horse - there's a Town too!|
And no BUNDY! But as you can see we made do!
Dave was in his glory!
Well that's it. All we can say it we had the time of our life and would go back in a second!
The people we wonderful, the country Magnificent and there is still so much we didn't get to see. Maybe next time :)
We can thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
We hope you all enjoyed reading about it as much as we enjoyed "living it".
Dave and Shell
P.S. I don't know what the next post will be about - Kalgoorlie is rather boring in comparison :)
