The U.S.A. is a vast, diverse, beautiful place!

We recently completed a 7200 mile adventure across the U.S.A. What a wonderful country that has so many amazing things to see and do!

I'm a Canadian, I am honoured to have the U.S.A. as a neighbour. We found nothing but calm and kind people during our month long trip. Of course I'm just repeating what all Americans' already know!

We felt like we were right at home the whole time. We met many interesting people, saw so many beautiful things (Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Death Valley) and witnessed some of the determination and grit put forth by past Americans (Hoover Dam, Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Rushmore to name a few).

America the beautiful, indeed!

I am so glad that you had a wonderful trip and everyone treated you well. I know that there is the USA and Canada but we are all part of North America and many of us from the states have the same view of Canada. Some things may cost a little more in Canada but it is a must see and I have always been treated very well in Canada. Much better fishing up there. Thank you for your kind words.

Currently on a non-camping motorcycle trip from PA to AR to visit a friend. 1400 miles from Wilkes Barre PA to Ft. Smith AR. Had the chance to do the Talimena Scenic Drive in the Ouachita Nat Forest and the Pig Trail in the Ozark Nat Forest. Two great roads--the Talimena rivals Skyline Drive in VA! Lots of great stuff to see and drive. And another 1400 miles home yet, probably by a different route. Can't wait...

North America

I retired 5 years ago after 2 careers spanning 41 years. Since that time, we have traveled more than 350,000 miles in our oversized SUV. From Key West to Fairbanks via the Al-Can we have LOVED it. With our NPS senior pass we have visited NP from Maine to California and most in between.

Loved it so much that we've purchased a class A with bunk beds to share with our many grandchildren. Since we started RVing in May 2014 we have logged about 10,000 miles and and 60 nights - most with 3 or 4 of our grandchildren. God willing we will continue sharing for a few more years,

So yep - go see - it is AMAZING.

Oh yes - one of those careers lasted 22 years in the US Army with lots of overseas tours. So I am well informed on sights outside North America but have fallen in love with tall trees, huge mountains, wonderful waterfalls, bears, open deserts, redwood forests, glaciers - anyways you all should get the idea. GO SEE.

Happy camping,
I'd love to see Canada in our RV but as stated the cost is prohibitive so I'll settle for the US, the only time I got fleeced there was by a DR, in Canada it's every business that gets their hand in your pocket.
