We bought a 1997 Chevy Astro, Gladiator conversion van from a guy on Long Island via Craigslist and drove it to Summer camp where we did some modifications so that it was all set up for sleeping in and camping.

Check out the post on the Pre-Trip Overhaul to see how we did it.

We started in central Maine and will be working our way to Los Angeles over a period of 6-8 weeks. We have a list of places to see and people to catch up with along the way but we’re also looking for help to find anything out of the ordinary, to do and see things that your average tourist wouldn’t see. That’s the beauty of the road trip… you can stop where you want and see all those things in-between the usual tourist destinations.

UPDATE: The trip concluded in LA and we flew to Australia on November 1… EPIC trip!!!
