49 States Road Trip: Travel Center

westernPost on this blog are arranged in reverse chronological order (typical blog fashion) with the newest at the top of the page and the oldest at the bottom. This ordering method is great if you are following on a daily bases where you see the latest post at the top of the page. As long as you are reading the post daily you just read the last post, but if you are trying to catch up it can be tiresome as you have to scroll down the page until you find the last post you read and then read up.

All plans are fluid, nothing is final until it is done….
