In 1967 my father bought a Pontiac Catalina and a dingy old travel trailer and took his girlfriend, my brother and me on a road trip. Over the next 8 weeks we drove 13,498 miles, visited 51 parks, and saw wonders like geysers, redwoods, grizzlies, and the Summer of Love in San Francisco. The trip made an indelible impression, cementing my appreciation for the natural world and the American landscape. This summer Pamela and I hope to repeat the experience for our family.

Dave: A Quick Word About the Map

If any of you pay attention to our map, you will see much of the trip has disappeared.

Our map now includes so much information, Google Maps lists it on two pages. Evidently the default behavior of Google Maps is to only show the map associated with the current page. So the map associated with everything before a couple days ago is not displaying by default. You have to click on the little map, shows the full map in a separate window, and then scroll to the previous page.

I will attempt to concatenate this information. If anyone knows how to adjust this behavior, please post the answer.

The beauty of blogs. I can crowdsource.
