We had planned to get back on the 16th, but due to several down days with mechanical issues we probably won't get back until at least the 18th. How long will your trip continue and will you be coming through Arkansas? We found the coast along highway 1 to be beautiful, I wish we would have had more time to stop and enjoy it!

We are from South Arkansas and I found this app when planning our trip. I found your Tour then and have been seeing your travels ever since. We left Arkansas on June 29 and I'm pretty sure we passed your family a couple of days ago in Oregon. What are the odds!!!

Our trip just started yesterday. I made the map a while back and I can't figure out how to change the date! Hahaha

It would be neat to see this map feature from your entire trip!!
Could you start over please😂

It would be neat to see this map feature from your entire trip!!

Are you following Hwy 2 all the way? I've been watching all the weather reports. Hope you avoid the worst of it!

We will be following you the whole way
