    Hello My name is Stan I also live in NC myself ( Richmond County ). And I also do a lot of camping/ kayak adventures. And I'm also professional Driver ( 34 yrs)... and professional musician. I've traveled to Colorado more times than I can count, lol. In the beginning I also thought that going through Kentucky was better than Tennessee. But I gotta say, there's a better way, lol. And it goes through a part TN & KY.."It's a place that can't be found, except by those who know where it is"... Get up with me on your next trip and I'll be glad to let you know the best route from North Carolina though TN & KY. But either way, you guys are doing awesome adventures! Thanks, keep rocking!

    My cars have had names. The best one was, "The Pig." It was a Mazdaspeed6. It was big, heavy and sucked down gas.My first car was nicknamed, "The Duece" after an old Sinbad skit. It was a 79 El Camino. That car was a dang tank and epitomised that skit so well.

    Hard to believe that it has been 20 years. As far as sleeping i a rest stop, we have done that many times but not in a nice van like you have. We once got caught in a pass that was closed and we could not go back because it was closed on that end too. Spent the night in a snow storm in our little Suzuki Sidekick. But that little SUV was awesome. It had actual hubs that you had to get out and lock to go into 4 wheel drive.

  • What's That Darn Niederkruger Up To Now

    I wonder if they got the idea for the 9/11 memorials and flags on the overpasses from here in Ontario, Canada? During the war, when soldiers were KIA, when they brought them home we would all be on the highway overpasses, rain, shine, or snowstorm, all along the hwy to pay our respects. That stretch of Hwy 401 is now called The Highway of Heroes.
