Map of Our Route

Map of Our Route

This is the actual route we traveled on our road trip! Feel free to click on the map to enlarge it and get a better look.  Also, see below for the destinations corresponding with the numbers on the map.  We accomplished our goal of seeing every one of the 48 contiguous states of the United States!

I was sure we would deviate from the original route at times as we discovered new places and ventured out.  Sure enough, the plan changed several times.  There are quite a few more stops on our final route than on the original plan (60 more to be exact!).  That’s because there’s so much to see in the U.S.! Even with 123 destinations, we still didn’t see it all, but at least we were able to see what we did.  Plus, there’s always next time! 😉

We’re the Bennetts, Justin & Briana, and it’s time for a change! We've left our jobs and everything else behind to start fresh somewhere else. They say it's all about "location, location, location," and what better way to figure out the best location for us than to explore the entire country searching for it? We’ll be driving across the continent with a truck and travel trailer on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime! Tag along with us and our two dogs, Meaty and Saucy, as we explore North America searching for our next destination!

Another National Park to check off the list! Saguaro National Park was #24 for us out of 60 total U.S. National Parks. The only place in the world where the Saguaro cactus grows is the Sonoran Desert, which is located primarily in Mexico but is also in a small part of the southwestern U.S. consisting of the southern third of Arizona and the southeastern tip of California. So while we were traveling through Arizona, we had to take advantage and make a stop in Tucson to visit this cactus in its very own National Park!⠀ {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #FBF #flashbackfriday #facts #funfact #funfactfriday #factoftheday #saguaro #saguaronationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #desertvibes #arizona #tucson #tucsonarizona #visitarizona #explorearizona #southwest #roadtrip #thegreatoutdoors #optoutside #outside_project #getoutside #themoderndayexplorer #roamtheplanet #travellife #photooftheday #desertvibes #outdooradventures #nextdestinationunknown
As we made our way southeast, we stopped in Tucson to cross another National Park off our list: Saguaro National Park! Since we were only there a few days, we splurged on this upgraded site at the Tucson/Lazydays KOA Resort, which we really enjoyed and would have to say has been one of our favorite KOAs (they can be hit or miss). We were actually tempted to stay here longer to enjoy the RV park, but in the end, we were on a time-crunch with plans to meet up with family during the upcoming winter holidays at the time (I'm soooo behind on my posts... oops!). Plus, the other National Parks were calling to us (which I'll get around to posting eventually... haha!).⠀ {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #latergram #TBT #throwbackthursday #tucson #koa #gorving #rv #rvers #rving #roadlife #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #glamping #rvtrip #rvlife #rvlifestyle #rvliving #wanderlust #stayandwander #getoutandexplore #roadtrip #ontheroad #ontheroadagain #travellife #travelers #neverstopexploring #goexplore #adventuretime #adventurelife #nextdestinationunknown
The sky gave us quite a show on the drive back to the Phoenix area from our day trip to Sedona. It was the cherry on top of an overall fabulous day! Even though we don't miss living in the desert, there's just something about desert sunsets! #amiright ? {...} • • • #desertsky #desertsunset #sunset #skyporn #cloudporn #nofilter #arizona #cactus #cactusclub #roadlife #roadtrip #daytrip #visitarizona #explorearizona #southwest #westbysouthwest #findyouraway #optoutside #gorving #themoderndayexplorer #roamtheplanet #outside_project #getoutside #photooftheday #instagood #photographyart #iphonephotography #iphoneography #nextdestinationunknown
