Months later I see this...

I'm in San Diego, if you're ever out this way again drop a line and we'll show the sights and trails

Great trip, I stopped at that same spot on the I-70 about the same time you were there, ran across the lady selling authentic Navajo stuff - of course that was every pull-off along the highway, lots of authentic stuff

Still have a bunch of peach salsa and syrup and everything under the sun from my stop in Palisade, CO. That is an amazing road

Awesome write up.
Awesome read.
Awesome photos.
Awesome experiences.

In 2007 I rode a bicycle across the United States (northern, from the Pacific of Oregon to the Atlantic in Mass) and it was absolutely the most amazing, and awesome, experience of my life. I'd love to do it in a vehicle some day. Not sure if the Jeep would be my best choice, but it certainly would be the most fun.

Wow this is great entertainment. Read the WHOLE darn thing while I was standing around the Hobby Lobby leaning over a smaller than average cart. This thread kept me entertained. Until we were done and I realized we'd spent 2 hours in there...

It does seem like every dirt road in California is behind a locked gate...

I am truly inspired. Your report and the one at http://theroadchoseme.com has me itching to put my rubicon on and off the road for an adventure.

For the longest time I have dreamed about full timing in a travel trailer and roaming the country when I retire. I own two old airstream travel trailers. I think I've finally come to the realization that I'll never get either one of the Airstream's ready and make a trip like that. I still have a strong desire for a long road trip like the one told about in this thread. I noticed were you talk about stopping in Alva Oklahoma. And that being on the TAT. I live in Alva, Oklahoma and see quite a few cross-country bikes that take a short jag off the TAT into Alva for food or lodging etc. I have some farming interests around here and sometimes when I'm out in the country i'll see the endurance style touring bikes traveling with a lot of gear packed on them. I personally have not visited with any of them, but I have a brother-in-law who has. My biggest problem with the airstreams is that I'm more of a mechanic than an aircraft sheet metal man, plumber, cabinet maker, etc. My thoughts are transitioning from traveling in an airstream to my jeep, only problem is my wife would be more well-suited in the airstream than roughing it in the Jeep. Let me quit rambling and get to my point. I'm interested in this type of thing. Given the fact that I live in Alva Oklahoma, if anyone plans a trip on the TAT and ever needs help or wants to stop for a safe camping place for the night please contact me and I will do what I can help you. There are several jeeps in my family and probably will be several more in the next year or so maybe one day we will all be traveling West together. Happy trails to all, Kirk

Space, well written. That was an excellent read. You might want to consider writing a book one day. Cheers

Fantasitc trip report. Had never heard of the TAT trail, but plan to run at least the TN portion soon since that's where I'm located. It would be an epic way to bicycle tour across country as well if you had some serious time on your hands. It would be equivalent to hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Nice report! I too am on advrider and have been thinking of continuing my adventures by Jeep instead of 2 wheels. Are there any groups similar to the Ironbutt Association for the Jeep crowd? The adventure rider crowd haves few life list rides, like the Trans Lab or Dempster highway rides or TAT as mentioned in this post. Any Jeep drives on must drive lists? Just Jeep curious haha.

I saw your link to this on advrider. Nice report. How much off the TAT is accessible by four wheeler? I'd like to go on the Mississippi part with my LJ and XT225. Mississippi just because it is due south of Illinois.
