Hi all TC friends, some people might remember me, Felix from Germany, 10 years ago on the trip to the Southwestern USA (I wrote a trip report).
Now, a new adventure is approaching: a Trans-America-Trip:
We (my Spanish friend Luis and I ) will arrive at Vancouver at 2nd of May 2022. In Victoria BC we will pickup our rig, which I already had bought a couple of months ago: 2008 Dodge Ram Hemi + 1996 6’102 NorthernLite camper.
Finally the end of our trip will be Halifax at 17th of June. So, it will be a Pacific to Atlantic-crossing.
We want to visit the following highlights:
Coming from Vancouver we will cross the frontier with direction Seattle. Then: Mt Rainer, Mt St. Helens, Portland, crossing Oregon to the Owyhees, Payette Nat. Forests Idaho, Craters of the Moon, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Beartooth, South Dakota, Chicago, Detroit, Niagara, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Noca Scotia, Halifax.
The rig will be shipped to Germany from Halifax harbor.
May be you see our rig, then lets drink a beer together. :-)
To make it easier I just started to design a blog, so, feel free to have a look at it from May on.
Cheers from Germany
Felix

PS: in association to John Steinbecks "Rosinante" we called our rig "Capricorn" = Dodge Ram....... :-)

Have fun.

I'm not sure how much you thought about it, but you might have some limits seeing Yellowstone and the Tetons because of snow. If you've ever considered traveling the park by Snow Coach or snowmobile considering booking those now if you will be in Yellowstone are early in May. Also, camping in the park will be limited availability, so better book soon if you plan to stay there.

Guten tag Herr Felix, wie geht es ihnen?

Welcome back, and I'm hoping you have another good trip. One thing to watch out for would be border crossings. With the covid issue, traveling between Canada and USA has become more difficult. I'm sure you are aware of all that, but just want to make sure.

Hallo Larry,
Danke es geht mir sehr gut ! :-)))
An interesting point!
I'm aware of the COVID controls, but is there anything special beside of the usual condition (vaccination + documents or app, evt. PCR test)?
Thx for all info.

The best American sightseeing is the national parks. Maybe you did those 10 years ago, you did not say. If you havent been to utah then you are missing a lot. once you get past the Rockies then the sightseeing becomes less. You want ideas of where to go or you just looking for drinking buddies? lol

yes, we had visited the NPs in the South West (Utah, AZ, Nevada, Colorado). Of course extremly attractive and worth to travel a lot more times there. But now we go to the north, so we will visit the places as mentioned above. Will be funny and interesting as well, I'm sure. :-)

Just a good heads up, alot of the National Parks have started requiring getting entry tickets to get inside due to the huge upswing in visitation during the pandemic.
