The term "epic" is thrown around a lot, but I feel like the trip my brother and I took would qualify. Over the course of 11 days, my brother and I visited 11 states, 9 of which we had never been to before, and set our new furthest West and North points either of us have ever been!
There is a massive amount of stuff I am going to try and fit into this post, it is going to be a long post and there's no way I can accurately portray all the things we saw or did.
I took 16,319 photos on the trip, which is a new personal record for most taken in a single week.
We left home on May 14th and headed west on I-84. We drove through Pennsylvania, which is an 8 hour ride, and most of Ohio, stopping for the night in Maumee, which is where we like to stay in that area and I was last in in 2019.
I did forget one thing, though, and that is that I wanted to bring a South Dakota quarter and hold it up in front of the actual thing.
