We’ve rescheduled our road trip that we were originally going to do back in June to the Pacific Northwest. It’s back on! :D

We will leave the Chicago area the evening of September 4th. We’ll head west across the country via US Highway 20, stopping in areas of interest along the way until we reach major water (Newport, Oregon). From there, we head north along the coast through Oregon and Washington – side-stepping to Portland and Seattle - before cutting back across the country by way of US Highway 2 (or other interesting scenic byways or gravel/dirt paths that may parallel the highway along the way).

We’re doing all of this in 16 days, and we have no real itinerary… as we’ve discovered that it’s an awesome, free-form way for us to travel. We’d love to see friends along the way, should the stars align and we can be near the same place around the same time. Due to time constraints, we may be unable to get too far off our route. That, too, we’ll play by ear. Instead, I’ll actively post our location information. If we’re close and the timing is good, let’s meet for a meal, a drink, coffee… whatever! I’d love to see some of you along the way!

Tentative rough routing:

Leg 1 - East to West: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing

Leg 2 - South to North: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing

Leg 3 - West to East: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing

Leg 4 - North to South: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing

I see leg 3 ends and leg 4 begins at Watersmeet MI, home of the mighty Nimrods.

Looking forward to your trip report

We've been back for 1-1/2 weeks, but I've had no downtime to work through many photos - lots of work for me since we've been home. Hopefully, soon. I actually have Saturday afternoon and Sunday off - I hope to continue working on photos then.

My apologies for taking so long. I've picked up new contract work that has me traveling across the country.

So, I'm just going to drop a few photos here - all from our trip to the PNW back in September.
