Alysa & Mitch: The RV Trip

In the Spring and Summer of 2004, we took a four-month journey across the southern half of the United States. This page is a summary of sorts, and links to various pages on our blog. The blog wasn't written to be summarized in this fashion but is a quick way to recap the trip. Some entries contain info on multiple stops, so don't be surprised if more than one link points to the same page. We still have lots of updating to do in all our free time - hopefully we'll complete everything before next summer!

Below is a map showing each of our stops. The arrows represent the stops, but not the highways traveled. Each arrow is one "leg" of the trip.
