Cool write-up. For a little while we got to do through you the adventure we wish we were doing. Thanks for the link to the Trans-America trail. I think that might be my next adventure with the Jeep and trailer.

Sweet. Be aware, however, that the route may change a bit from time to time as landowners lock the gates across private roads on their land, bridges get washed out, roads are abandonded and re-routed, etc. Get a good set of topo maps (in addition to the TAT maps), so you'll be able to plan a detour if necessary.
Here are a few TAT ride reports on Adventure Rider dot com, my old Adventure Bike hangout...
Its funny to me that everyone tells me they are going to some island somewhere. They are going to some foreign country. I bet none of them have experienced half of the beautiful things this wonderfull country has to offer. I thank you for sharing your journey with us. As my kids and i looked at your pictures, i thought of what it would be like to share that experience with them. Truly something they would never forget. Thanks
Amazing trip and thanks so much for sharing. The wife and I were in San Fran. a few years ago. Rented a Corvette convertible (tried to get a Jeep, but no one had one) and drove south on highway 1 to Pebble Beach and Monterey, then north a ways and inland into wine country. Also toured San Fran and Alcatraz. An amazing place! Your pics. bring back great memories.
Thanks again for sharing!
A quote from my wife: "I don't even want to know how much it cost, I'm not in the mood to be that pissed off today."
That was truly breathtaking! When I had to go home from camp in Colorado early because of swine flu, my dad flew out and we rented a car to drive back from Durango to Atlanta. We stayed on Route 66 for a good majority of the trip, and it was honestly one of the best vacations ever haha. Crossing our massive nation is an amazing thrill that everyone should try at least once. I applaud you sir.
