Beth Visits America

  • bethmap.jpg

  • Come see what Beth's up to! She's living in her pickup truck (lovingly known as Tach), and rambling the byways and backroads of America. When she has money, that is. When she runs out, she stops and gets a job until she can drive on again. Stop in here, add your comments, and wish her the best. And heck, if you have a driveway, can she sleep in it?

Beth's 100 Things

Well, you HAVE been gone almost a YEAR! I'd be whumpy, too. (such a good harry potterish word, too....) Come home and we'll celebrate my bday! xo


Wow! Map looks so cool, burning through nearly all states. Look forward to seeing you home soon.

Botts dots were invented by Alexander Botts, who never made any real money from them, cause he was employed by Caltrans (Calpoly grad). They have saved many lives, but if you're feeling devilish, put your tire on one at 60 and brake hard...POP! The epoxy is good, but not meant for 2 ton sideways pressure. Love, Dad


Your map is looking mighty impressive Bethany! Yep, can understand you are itching to get home.. But what an adventure you have had!

(When you want to go to Alaska let me know, drove up to the Yukon and saw a taste of Alaska about 15 years ago.. Great adventure. So different up there but can understand if you are NOT into another road trip in the near future.. ;)

Hang in there girl, you are almost there...


Bethany, The Movie Manor! I love that you stayed there because, well, that's something I would do. :) All good things must of course come to an end, but it's sure been great to read about your adventures. I've spent the last four years living on a tiny rock that's only 13 miles long--not easy for someone with my kind of wanderlust. So thank you for all the vicarious thrills I've gotten out of reading about your travels. May the last leg of your journey be a safe and sweetly memorable one.

P.S. Any plans to compile your travel entries into a book??


That map just blows me away. Way to go (pun intended).

I hope Tach feels better soon, and that you do, too. Safe travels.


Well you are either home as I write this or spending one of your last nights with Tach alone. Either way I suspect that HOME will be pulling hard and you will wake refreshed with journey plan to hand be that to the kitchen to make breakfast or foot down and heading for that particular front door.
Listen to that body and heart of yours. Whumpy is good if you don't berate yourself for feeling that way. Whumpy means you make decisions and act. It may mean a few more back roads or just a straight through drive home either way be safe and like Rachael says after a year on the road

- hey you don't just count from the time you actually left but include the maps and guides you read and researched before, the equipment you got together for tach and you and the time when the off was already done even though you were still at home -

go home and celebrate. I did actually read Rachael's comment as celebrate her BODY which I thought was a novel enticement for a sister - visions of her striking poses in her running gear whilst you tried not to giggle did come to mind :0)Take care, be safe and arrive knowing the journey will continue even if the travelling may be curtailed for a while.


Safe home, dearest...what a Grand Adventure!
