Great Western U.S. Road Trip

 Starting this Friday, August 21st I will be venturing out on a 31 day road trip across the Western United States.  The trip will include 10 states in all (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, CO, UT, AZ, NV) and will really focus on National Parks.  I've never been to Montana, Idaho or Wyoming, so I'm looking forward to that part of the trip.  I'm able to take this time off because I was recently laid off from CBS Interactive.  I've always enjoyed exploring and this is the perfect time and opportunity to do just that.

I'm looking forward to meeting with long lost friends along the way and seeing my wife mid-way through in Denver.  I know I'm going to miss my wife, dog and family the most during such a long trip but I truly enjoy traveling the open road and discovering new places.

I'll have a pretty comprehensive collection of gadgets and photo equipment to document the journey along the way and will blog to this site throughout the trip.

Should there be any tips or recommendations along my route - please feel free to add a comment to one of my blog postings.

That's it for now - look forward to adding more by the end of this week.

Hey Raul,

Sounds pretty awesome! I was wondering if you plan to visit Yosemite?...might be able to hook up with you there too. Let me know!

Have a great trip!

Hooray for you! What an awesome plan. Enjoy it all!

Wow! So jealous. Looks like it will be an amazing time.

One recommendation, when you're in Colorado you HAVE to hit up one of the kagillion hot springs in the state. There are some good ones in Ouray and Buena Vista which I think is on your way to Durango.

Can't wait to see your adventures and hear the stories over a drink when you get back. :)

Thanks guys, Chad, Yosemite is not on the list this time around - but it would be great to visit down the road and take Rachel and our dog Toby.
