2024 Estimated 9,000 Mile RV Road Trip

Jerry is headed out across America to visit 18 states, 20 National Parks and everything he can see along the way.

This trip started May 13, 2024.

I'm glad you've decided to enjoy this massive road trip with me. I started from Sweet Home Alabama then I'm headed through Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and then back home to Alabama.

The National Parks I'll see are Big Bend NP, White Sands NP, Saguaro NP, Joshua Tree NP, Death Valley NP, Sequoia NP, Kings Canyon NP, Pinnacles NP, Yosemite NP, Lassen Volcanic NP, Redwoods NP, Crater Lake NP, Mount Rainier NP, Olympic NP, North Cascades NP, Glacier NP, Theodore Roosevelt NP, Rocky Mountain NP, Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, and Great Sand Dunes NP. If I happen to pass by some other nearby National Parks without going there, it is because I've already been to them. This trip is to visit parks I have yet to see.

There is no time frame for this trip, so I can stay as long as I want at any given location assuming I can find a campsite. Keep an eye on this page as well as my Tik Tok account for updates. Tik Tok will get updates much quicker than this page. I likely won't be able to post pictures here until after the trip.

The camper I will be pulling is a 2024 Rockwood Geo Pro G15TB travel trailer. It is very short, only 15ft long, and will fit in any campground, anywhere. I will be pulling it with a 2024 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4x4 truck. The truck can tow 6,400 pounds and the camper weighs about 4,300 pounds when loaded with all my stuff.
