Mrs. S. and I have been on the road for a few weeks now, traveling from western NY to the "Mighty Five" Utah national parks and back. I thought forum members might enjoy reading about our adventures and seeing some of our best pics.

I've been documenting it all in my blog, continualsunsets. The last time I posted a link here I got a nasty comment about trying to use the forum to generate traffic and generate income. That was an unnecessary comment, because I am not using the blog as a source of income. It is not monetized (at least not by me; there are probably ads from wordpress affiliates, but I have nothing to do with them.)

If you are interested in reading our adventures, I'd love to have you along for the ride. Here's the link to the first day of the trip.

If you are likely to feel offended by being drawn into what you'll think is a money-grubbing attempt on my part to increase my blog's traffic, by all means, do not click on the link.

Happy Travels!

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

I read your entire blog about this trip and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Felt like I was right there with you!

Thanks for sharing!

Awesome! Thanks for letting me know. That's my goal as a writer - to capture the reader and bring them along.

I love RV travel blogs. Glad you shared it. We took a long trip with our kids 12 years ago that I blogged about so family could follow along. I still enjoy going back to read it...good memories. I’m sure you’ll do the same many years down the road.

BTW, I’m originally from WNY. Been in TN for 18 years but my wife and I began our family in Orchard Park, after growing up in Chautauqua Co.

Asking for my wife, who grew up in Cheektowaga - Are you a Bills fan? She finds Bills fans everywhere we go! Quite a fellowship!

On each day's entry there is a link at the bottom of the page to take you to the next day. (There's also a link to allow you to go back to the previous day). They may not "look" like links, but they are. They are the titles for each of the day's entries.
