The (rough) itinerary

After a small (that is an exaggeration!)amount of researching, we have come up with the following itinerary. We don’twant to be too strict but do need some guide on which direction we will be going, how many km's it will take and the places we can’t miss.

So here it is...

We are starting in Seattle and going clockwise from there until we end up back at Portland, Oregon mid December. As you can see we are mostly focusing on the West Coast and the Rockies with a flight from Colorado to New York (just dont think I can drive that far!). We think this will allow us to chill in a few paces if we like them and wont mean we are driving every day which I am sure would become pretty boring after the first four weeks.

Highlights will be Olympic National Park, Vancouver Island, Okanagan Wine Region, Banff, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Jasper, Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder, New York, Santa Fe, Zion National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Las Vegas, Joshua Tree National Park, Los Angeles, Big Sur Coast, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Redwood National Park and Portland.

I know, I know a lot of National Parks but there are some great towns in between which will ensure we dont go too feral. Are also packing the snowboards because I think we will be popping into the odd ski slope.

So there is the plan - but plans are only plans - god knows where we will visit.

Less than four weeks now - can't come soon enough - although am trying to live in the moment and enjoy this part of the adventure (that was for you mum).
