2-Minute Read

On July 19th we grabbed the Ural, and Dachary’s BMW, threw the dogs in the sidecar, and set off across America during one of the hottest summers on record. It was a mad dash to get to Colorado, and back (via Canada) before the last of Kay’s vacation days.

We discovered Americas highest stoplight, the worlds largest ball of twine, and what it’s like to stand in a hair drier you can’t unplug. Though it was too many miles in too short of a time, we learned a lot, discovered that our dogs share our love of the open road, and got to spend time exploring the world again.

Yes, it’s really that beautiful
