    Men always should wear a beard!
    Hope you will not be hit by the storms that were reported in the TV over here!

    Love the pictures from Portland! Gregg grew up vacationing just south of there in Ocean Park. We’ve taken the kids twice and fell in the love with that area. So glad you got to see it, too. Are you adding floaties to the bus for the storm?

    • Hi Jones Family!
      We loved Portland too. At dinner we spent some time looking at the calendar to see if we could wedge in some more time there. We decided that we just have to come back when we can spend a big chunk of time exploring all of Maine. It’s such a beautiful state.

      As far as floaties for the bus… what we really need is a Boston Duck conversion kit! πŸ™‚

    Sounds so great guys! You are definitely doing it right. Except for the fact that your route does not bring you all through Kansas…. Miss you all!! Have fun. Jeff

    Playlist song Life is a highway (Rascel Flates) one of my favorites. If you would send us the picture of your family in front of the Mighty Mac (e-mail is fine) we like that picture.

  5. Your journey is really great so far. I realized today that you added a map feature as well, that makes it a lot easier to follow you. I was totally confused by the title of this post as I keep forgetting that city names (without state) are not necessarily unique in the US! And the pictures are really cool. After some snow only a little time ago, then good weather, we now will start into a rainy November. Feels like the country asked for an extensive and real hard shower :/
