This morning we stopped at an auction on the side of the road in Park Rapids, Minnesota to see what cool stuff they had.

Today was the best day. We didn’t follow the “plan” at all and ended up having a blast without even trying. It began this morning after leaving the Walmart we camped at last night and headed off in the direction of Duluth, Minnesota.

Driving along on Highway 82 in New Mexico was one of my favorite days during my 2009 “Wild, Wild West” road trip. A storm was forming and the road was directly on the edge of it, giving us sunshine on one side of the car and rain drops on the other. It was so beautiful, … Continue reading Hwy 82, New Mexico
