26 nights campsites so far $755 (the rest boondocking ,wild camping) average $30 per night

Propane refill so far $291

So something like 35 countries, 5 days per country. That's more American than the "It's Sunday, this must be France" standard American tourist. You are now the FUN authority on American tarmac.

It's called a ROAD trip and we have enjoyed it immensely and visited all the sights we wanted.Sorry you think so poorly of our journey.

What I think is of no importance, I don't mean to offend you, I'm just gob smacked at the miles, more than some would do in years. We think 8000 in a year is going some. To put it into perspective that is ten times the distance from Calais to Moscow, which in itself would be a massive trip for most.

@Jim needs to forge some form of medal for you or at least present you with his top of the range FUN mug.

What a fantastic trip, well done and it’s not over yet. I would love to do that kind of trip but my bank balance says dream on. I hope one day to meet you and talk about your trip. Happy travels. (y)
