In the fall of 2014 we set out in our RAV4 to drive from Maryland to California and back. Along the way we visited friends and family and stayed in many National Parks.
Flexibility is required on this type of trip and we learned to find motels and cook in our room when the weather was bad or it was too late to camp out.
We developed a talent for finding good inexpensive tacos and Mexican food all over the country.
We loved camping in remote places so much that we decided to buy a truck and camper to make it easier to explore comfortably regardless of the weather.
