Back in CA: A look at the route

Greetings! It's been quite a while since our last update. There's so much we haven't been able to write. So where are we now? Well, unfortunately, the huge fires in the Pacific Northwest in the late summer sent us home a bit early, so we made our way back from Utah to SoCal. We are taking a bit of a break now having finished our initial roadtrip/journey and are back in California.

A lot of you have asked us which route we took and where we went on our journey. Here is a map tracing the basic route, followed by a (mostly complete) list of the places we visited.

 We drove quite a bit more than 7450 miles but this is basically the route we took.
