Several years ago, I thought about making this trip. Fortunately, or unfortunately (depending on your thought process), I already owned the vehicle that I wanted to make the trip in. As my friends would all tell you: I can never go the easy route when it comes to vehicles. The time has come to make the attempt; the vehicle is as ready as it ever will be. I may make it; I may not. I decided a while back, to take this in steps. I would not get caught up in the destination, I would just experience the travel.
I fought the idea behind this blog for a while, but in the end it allows people I care about to take part in the trek along with me. If I pick up a few stowaways along the way, all the better. I’ll do my best to maintain it, but I don’t want to be tied to it to the point where I will spend more time reporting than I do exploring. For those of you who find out about the blog well after the Rover has departed Alaska, or Minnesota, or Iowa… my sincerest apologies. This isn’t done with any malicious intent, I’m just taking things as they come and seeing how far this old Series can go. I’m not really the type to put the plans too far ahead of the Rover.
This, should be a lot of fun. Feel free to check in when you can.
