Whelp, we are now exactly one month away from that time of year again where I travel to exotic locales in order to find myself*.
Five years ago I embarked on my first Walkabout. In this inaugural Walkabout I drove from Dallas to Seattle and back; stopping off at as many National Parks as I could. Why it seems like just yesterday in which I battled the elements while lost in Sequoia National Park and battled the horrible food of the Village Inn.
For Walkabout 2012: Yet Another Return to Seattle, This Time It’s Personal, I will again be traveling by automobile again to Seattle, but taking a much different route. The currently planned schedule is the following:
|Friday Sep 14||Amarillo|
|Saturday Sep 15||Grand Junction CO|
|Sunday Sep 16||Arches NP|
|Monday Sep 17||Salt Lake City|
|Tuesday Sep 18||Boise|
|Wednesday Sep 19||Bend OR|
|Thursday Sep 20||McMinnville OR|
|Friday Sep 21||Portland|
|Saturday Sep 22||Seattle|
|Sunday Sep 23||Seattle|
|Monday Sep 24||Spokane|
|Tuesday Sep 25||Glacier NP|
|Wednesday Sep 26||Glacier NP|
|Thursday Sep 27||Bozeman|
|Friday Sep 28||Yellowstone NP|
|Saturday Sep 29||Yellowstone NP|

So I know what you must be thinking. “Those are some kick-ass places to visit. I sure wish I could join Steve and bask in not only his beauty but also that of our American wilderness.”
Well, you can. If there is a portion of this trip that intrigues you and you just gotta see** then leave a comment or email me or call me or text me or message me on Twitter or leave a note on my car and let me know.
And if you don’t want to join me, but know of a “oh shit man, you need to check this place out” spot on my route, please also let me know of that as well.
* By “find myself”, I mean stuff delicious foods and beverages into my delicious foods and beverages hole.
** Seriously, who doesn’t want to see Amarillo?
