Ask A Question


I can answer a lot of questions about travel including driving tips, budgeting, packing, vehicle preparation, route ideas, things to see, and more.

Experience in the area

Over the past few years I have road tripped over 100,000 miles across the United States and Canada. I have driven across 50 states and 10 Canadian Provinces/Territories and checked out the sights along the way. If you need to know anything about road tripping or traveling in general I should be able to help out.


I have a master's degree. My educational credentials related to traveling is related to reading many articles about traveling and personal experiences.
