    1) If you are located EAST of the Mississippi River and spot the following license plates, with a reliable witness, you earn a dollar from Grampy. US states: Nevada, Hawaii, Alaska. Canadian provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and Yukon. Any Mexican plate.

    2) If you are located WEST of the Mississippi River and spot the following license plates, with a reliable witness, you earn a dollar from Grampy. US states: Vermont, Maine. Canadian provinces: the Maritimes (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia) along with Newfoundland and Labrador.

    3) When you see a plate for the first time, you have to locate it on a map, find the capital and the bordering states/provinces/territories.

  • Kearny state recreation area.

    Today we saw or first beaver. It was so cool to share this with Alyson. So many of our trips have been us showing her our favorite places. This time we experienced it as a family.
    Otherwise this was a pretty terrible day. We left two days late thanks to the truck being repaired (broken valve spring). We got the truck yesterday, but it was to late to leave. We woke at 4 am, left at 5:20 and then drove for 16 hours for almost 900 miles. We cannot get the fridge to run on gas, but we will carry on. After that day, it was wonderful to stop here to swarms of fireflies and then to see a beaver was crazy.Read more

    I80 in Nebraska

    May 6, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    The interstate in Nebraska is not the most interesting view. It’s pretty with fields of greens and red barns, but not a lot of variety. This huge arch was advertising a Visitor’s Center in some little town.Read more

    Archway Museum?

    October 14, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    “Adventure awaits. Exit Now.” 🤔

    This feels like someone had some public works money left to spend.
    “We should build a museum.”
    “Yeah, but we’re not really famous for anything around here.”
    “Hmmm. Well, what if we put it in an arch over the freeway.”
    “An arch over the freeway?!? I love it. Make sure to put some random sparkly shit on the roof.”
