Another long road trip!

We recently completed another 3 week, 5,000 mile road trip with our vintage Shasta!   

Starting from our home in the western part of New York state we traveled through 8 states spending the majority of time in Colorado and at several National Parks in Utah. We stayed at 10 different campgrounds as well as spending a week with family in the Rocky Mountains.  We all had a great time and the trailer continues to work well for our family of four with practically no issues. We did a lot of prep for this trip including re-packing wheel bearings, installing new tires, and creating a planned itinerary that included several options for where we might camp each night depending on how each day went. We made reservations far in advance at campgrounds in the National Parks and for potentially busy Friday nights, but stayed in first-come, first-served sites for most others. Overall a fantastic trip!

As I recover and dig through our photos I'll try to post some highlights here on the blog over the next several weeks.
