    June Roadtrip

    Planning a trip for next week. Taking a week off to enjoy the Z8. This is the preliminary plan - a lot of driving in 9 days, but could be a blast. Close to Yellowstone, but it simply would be too far with the time we have.

    It is My Scenic Drives https://www.myscenicdrives.com/. The numeric spots are stops or "waypoints" I used to direct the route on to specific roads. The Black little houses are the overnight stops. The site has great information about specific drives, sites and places to visit. Definitely worth a look.

    2400 miles - some pictures from the trip

    2,400 miles in 9 days from Iowa to South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming returning back to Iowa through Nebraska. Most of the drive was on the back roads - maybe 150 miles or so on I-90 between Mitchell and Rapid City on day 2. Literally 99% of it was top down as we only had the top up for a small rainy moment on the first day. Sounds like a lot miles and quite crazy to some, but we had a blast. The scenery throughout the trip was awesome in all its forms. Farmland, grasslands, tundra, mountains (snow covered in areas) and hills, including some pretty much desert in areas. Deer, Buffalo, Prairie Dogs, Mule Deer, Burrows, Antelope on the roadside. The Z8 passed a major milestone crossing the 100,000 mile mark on the last day (2,238.8 miles into the trip).
