While it was my intent to post log entries daily while on the road trip this proved to be impossible. Most non-commercial campsites did not have internet connections, as a matter of fact most didn’t even have cell phone reception.
What I ended up doing was posting the daily logs whenever possible. The ‘Day’ count is not meant to reflect real time. You can determine real time from the posting date on each entry. The day count excludes days not one the road trip and is meant only to reflect days on the road.

Trip Log: 2017
Because of several factors I have had to limit my time on the road to short trips of 7 to 10 days at a time, so the the 49 states will not be completed in one summer. In spite of this I have been having a great time and still have plans to complete it no matter how long it takes. This log still has several days from 2017 to be posted.
