Created by RoadtrippersUserTrips - May 20th 2021

When we realized Covid was here to stay for a long time, we elected to put our daughters in virtual school for the whole year. Then we figured when would we ever have the chance to go on a cross-country road trip during the school year and before it gets crazy hot and crowded. So we picked a couple of don’t miss spots we wanted to go and we rented an RV and hit the road with our 4 kids (3, 4, 8 and 11 years old) and our Jeep Wrangler in tow. We went to 7 national Parks and multiple national monuments. We also scheduled a Jeep Jamboree in Utah in the middle of our trip. The RoadTrippers app was super helpful in flying by the seat of our pants and finding some cool places to check out that we didn’t know existed (Meteor Crater, Cadillac Ranch, The Golden Driller, Moab Giants, etc.). Some of our highlights from the trip included the Oklahoma City Memorial, Bryce Canyon (my husband is named after the canyon), Moab Jeep trails, the badlands at sunset, and the Seacrest round barn in Iowa which was built by my husband’s great-grandfather. We had an amazing time and our kids will have these memories for a lifetime!
