Original Route Plan

Road Trip Map

Original Map of Our Route

This was the route we were originally planning on taking for our road trip.  Click on the map to enlarge it and get a better look.  See below for the destinations corresponding with the numbers on the map.  We’re trying to go through every one of the 48 contiguous states of the United States as well as a few places in Canada.  I was sure we would deviate from the route at times as we discovered new places and decided to venture out.  Sure enough, the plan changed! 🙂 You can see the updated map of our route HERE.  I’ll keep you posted on our whereabouts and let you know about any new discoveries and places worth mentioning.

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!

The #scenicdrive back to the Ridgway/Ouray area from Telluride.  We like finding a somewhat central location to park our RV and then take day trips to explore the surrounding areas.  How do you like to travel? Seriously can't get over how gorgeous the Telluride area is! We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this incredibly scenic town and surrounding mountain areas.  Definitely add Telluride (and Colorado in general) to your list of places to go if you haven’t been yet! What’s one place you highly recommend visiting? Here it is...Bear Creek Falls from the Telluride trail we hiked.  We figured the water would only be a trickle this time of year (this was back in the beginning of September) but were pleasantly surprised that there was a decent amount, and overall, the waterfall was much larger than we expected.  We only had time for one trail while we were in Telluride and were glad we chose this one.  We love hiking and try to do at least one hike everywhere we go, so we're always on the hunt for new destinations and trails.  If someone only had time for one trail in a state/city/popular area/wherever, which one would you recommend?
