My wife, me and two of our daughters just returned from a 6,500 mile tour of the west in our Lance.

The tour included...the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, Bighorn National Forest, Cody Wyoming, Beartooth Scenic Highway, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Wyoming, Zion National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Monument Valley and Mesa Verde National Park.

We left on June 24th and returned July 7th.

Here are some pics from the trip. It may take one or two posts to get this going...it has been a long time since I uploaded any pictures.

All I can say is WOW!!!! My family and I are wanting to take a similar trip in the next couple of years. Really can't wait now!!!


And in the end it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

I'm lucky to get my family to go out for two nights in the TC, much less all of those wonderfule places. Though I am glad to say, I've made almost all of the places you showed with my family during two trips with other trailers I've owned.

Nothing like having teenage daughters still willing to travel with you. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. It brought back lots of fond memories.

We have started on the same trip from Florida, but ours include Ky, and the Good Sam Rally. Then heading west byway of Denver, Salt Lake City and S.F. then north along your route and returning along the east coast. Our trip ends up around 10000 miles over 5 months. Anything I should look out for, or must see. If you're not a member of RV Pic Link, I would join and post your photos...

That is AWESOME! We only did 3000 miles in about the same time frame, but pulling a TT. We also left from Florida and went up into Canada - that was a great trip too!
I really want to make the same trip you did, already seriously considering it for next summer.
What is amazing is as one of the other poster's pointed out....2 willing teenagers! I also have 2 teenagers (boys though) - one is up for it the other would rather not. We will see if I can swindle 'em into it next summer.
Man, I'm envious of that road trip!
