Road Trip Stops we are considering

Wyoming State Brewery - Casper, WY
I think we should add more Breweries to this trip. But for now we have this one. Attached to the "World Famous Wonderbar" where you used to be able to get a beer for you... and your horse! Well it is Wyoming! Maybe they will give Captain Kitty a beer if I ride her in.

Devils Tower - Hulett, WY
As seen in the 1977 movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and of course a scared Native American Indian site.

Mount Rushmore - Rapid City, SD
Otherwise known as "Mount Crazy Horse". The monument of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln - that was never finished.

Hot Springs, SD
Location of the world’s largest mammoth research facility and of course, hot springs!

We haven't found ANYTHING between Hot Springs and the Mall of America!

Mall of America, Minneapolis, MN
Rides inside of a mall!

Chicago, IL
We haven't picked what we're going to do here yet, but it's a decided stop for sure.

The Quaker Inn - Akron, OH
The hotel is a converted silo complex! The rooms are round!

Any other suggestions? Please post them in the comment section! <3

Nick and Lisa Move BACK to New Jersey

It's been over a year in Idaho and now we're ready to head back to New Jersey.

I know it seems strange. We had a fun adventure and we're ready to head back East.

We've already started packing and we're trying to figure out the route we're going to take back now. It looks like we're going more north than our last trip. Two sites we're interested in are Mount Rushmore and Chicago.
