No Mustangs at the moment.

I was going to guess the first picture is Johnstown, PA, but the second picture didn't fit that location.

Wrong direction.  Left from Ohio and headed to Yellowstone.

Finally on the road headed to Yellowstone.   Was going to go last year but didn't due to the pandemic.  Left Friday morning and am out there somewhere.  Lets see if anyone can tell where our first stop was at for the weekend.  Here are a couple of pictures from the area we stayed at.

Still no winners.  I will list all the places we visited once we get back home.  Here are some pictures from   our current location.  Still in the same state that the last pictures were taken - just at the opposite end.

I am enjoying this road trip ...at first I thought you were in the Flint Hills area of Kansas but that canyon like pic is throwing me.

We made it home yesterday after being on the road for the past 3 weeks and over 4000 miles.   As I stated when I started this trip our destination was Yellowstone. 

Before I list the places in the picture’s I would like to say that this has been by far one of the best vacations we have taken.   I have been out west once before about 50 years ago and I had forgotten just how beautiful that part of our country is.   I'm glad we got to see so many wonderful things.

First stop – Dubuque Iowa - Stayed 3 nights

National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

Second stop – Sioux Falls, South Dakota - Stayed 2 nights

Falls Park

Fourth Stop – Cody Wyoming - Yellowstone Stayed 5 nights

Old Faithful

Already to play the game again? Where am I?

That's right - sitting in my living room. With the %&$^& price of diesel I can't afford to take my fifth wheel camper very far. We were supposed to go to Gettysburg, Pa. and Cape Cod, Ma. for vacation this year but have canceled. I'm out $305 in nonrefundable reservations but compared to what the cost of fuel would be to go I'll take the lost. Looks like there is no end in sight. Right now in Southern Ohio diesel is going from $5.35 to $5.49 a gallon. I saw that Massachusetts is at $6.25 per gallon in some areas. And these high fuel prices just drive up the cost of goods by being passed onto the consumer. It's a no win situation. Something has to give soon.

You would have liked Gettysburg, especially if you like American history. Unfortunately, I don't see a way for anything to "give" any time soon. We need to start making voting decisions based on our own best interests. Chuck

We're all mad about the cost of fuel. But look at it this way, they (politicians) see it as their opportunity to move to electric vehicles. Choke us with high fuel prices. But because they (politicians again), fail to realize that the grid can't support the amount of EV's required for most U.S. households. The cost of disposing a discharged EV battery (environment effects). The labor used to mine the elements for the EV battery. I can fill the fuel tank in minutes, charging an EV takes hours. I could go on and on. I don't want to get political on this forum, but it's related in a way since politicians (again) want to phase out the internal combustion engine. Maybe like the movie demolition man...........

We were really looking forward to going there and to Cape Cod. A lot of history at both locations and the surrounding areas. We will try again next year if fuel prices drop, and our health is still good. Would definitely like to get there before we get too old and can't make it.
