Expect the Unexpected

As you might expect, these roadtrips don't just incorporate historical markers. Consider them you're one stop for anything and everything you wanted to know about the route including many "locals only" hideouts and some of our own personal favorites that took a lot of convincing to include. We like to consider ourselves a jack-and-jill of all trades in terms of wandering fancy so these maps have been carefully constructed to reflect that. The plots found on these roadtrips have been suited for just about everybody but they do not include casinos, restaurants, or business establishments of any kind unless they hold some special significance. We feel we've covered all bases here, but if you feel that we've left out something vitally important on any of these maps, shoot us a virtual stare.
