11 summers of this now with our family of 4. It sorta blows my mind how itís all worked out. I love these trips and am so thankful that my family still gets in the Bus and does these with me.
I usually post when Iím home but figured Iíd get a jump on it mid way through the trip this year.

Doing this on my phone so will write more later. More of a picture story for now.
Basic trip is Moab, Arches, (hopefully) Canyonlands and currently in Telluride.

But just a minute, I have to up load some pics... Very Happy

Sure looks like you eat very well when you camp!
That's my favorite way to travel, too.

Thanks for sharing another family trip. You've got a great family. Dancing

Love those pictures. I always like road trip stories. Is that a crack I see in your windshield?

^^ yes it is a crack. Been there now for a few years. I need to replace it but a bit afraid of what I'll find when I take it out. Very Happy It's on the list though.

Kids are getting so big! Thatís a wonderful age for a young lady, everythingís perfect. At age 12, the girl brain turns in anD you have a small adult. Boy brain also turns on but has to be shared with 5 other boys.

Donít forget to paint when you have your window out.

Great photos and family adventure! Certainly enjoy reading these family posts of yours and hoping I can get my 2 young girls & wife out on some cool camping road trips in the future..

I bought by bus for $200 in Telluride in 1993 when I was a ski bum for a year dogging dishes at a restaurant on S. Oak St. Bus was in perfect view from the base of lift 8 and saw it everyday then bought it towards the end of the ski season and drove it east.
