I know many of you have accomplished a Cross-Country trip yourselves. We are finally headed back to California after 11 years out of the state! With my husband in the Navy this isn't our first cross-country move but it will be our first one we will actually taking our time on. Over the last few months we have prepared for our 17 day journey across America through 15 states. We bought (and refurbished) an NTU 2003 Coleman Niagara PUP. We spent most of our weekends (and weekdays) tackling this project with the help of this community, along with wonderful neighbors, friends and family. We tore out the moldy shower and rusty stove, built a brand new dining table and kitchen countertop, repaired water damaged subfloor and walls, laid brand new vinyl wood flooring, and even tried our hand at faux shiplap! With a new coat of paint, handmade curtains, and a fancy new water heater, we are all set for this big adventure! We will start our journey in West Virginia, visiting Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, then make our way North to New York where we will get soaked at Niagara Falls. We will also be making a quick day trip to Canada, visiting the city of Toronto. Then, exploring the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a bucket list item we will be checking off in Cleveland, Ohio. Next we will enjoy the views of Lake Michigan from Indiana Dunes State Park and then again from the Chicago skyline while eating deep dish pizza. Our journey will take us through Nebraska, where we will check out Omaha with a close friend. Afterward, we will venture through Colorado, stopping off at the Rocky Mountain National Park and then tour Denver with friends from home. Things will really start to heat up as we venture into Utah, visiting Arches National Park in Moab, then again in Nevada for a quick stopover in Las Vegas before finally entering California!
