NATIONAL PARKS ROAD TRIP: UPDATE 1

And in the blink of an eye, we’re already 5 days into our 3 month road trip. We, *cough* Kyle, has driven just over 900 miles through 6 states. Only one minor inconvenience so far requiring 2nd windshield replacement in 3 months. Lots of good food, great beer, and even better friends and family to share it with.

Day 1 | Toledo, OH → St. Louis, MO

Bald eagle sighting in Ohio, windshield crack within the first 100 miles, evening walk around Busch Stadium then to Gateway Arch National Park

Day 2 | St. Louis, MO → Kansas City, MO

Gateway Arch National Park visitor center and museum, beers at Boulevard Beer Hall, dinner at local dive bar The Peanut

Day 3 | Kansas City, MO

Lunch at Joe’s BBQ, Kansas City Public Library, beers at Casual Animal Brewing Company, Afterword Tavern and Shelves, Up-Down KC

Day 4 | Kansas City, MO → Lincoln, NE

Touring James and Rikki’s new house, windshield replacement at Safelite, dinner at Toast, beers at Boiler Brewing Company

Day 5 | Lincoln, NE

Coffee at The Mill at Innovations, lunch at Hub Cafe, beer and music bingo at White Elm Brewing Company, dinner at McKinney’s to watch USA win the Gold Cup

What’s to come

While the first few days of this trip were focused in and around major cities, the next leg is much more nature and camping focused. After making our way through Chimney Rock and Scotts Bluff National Monument, we jump into primitive and backcountry camping once we get to western Wyoming where we will explore Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Until next time, Meryn
