Robyn Robledo has truly inspired me and made me realize my traveling dreams are not that far from reality. This comprehensive book, 1,000 Miles of Memories: How To Plan Your First Epic Road Trip, teaches you how you can camp instead of spending money on hotels and travel just about anywhere.
Robyn explains how to create a family vacation that “enriches your soul and adds value to your life.” Learn how to start crossing off items on your bucket list now. Are you ready to add excitement, mystery, and adventure to your life?
Adventure travel is not about takingrisks. It’s about venturing away from thepredictable and mundane and looking atlife in terms of what’s possible …Robyn
She begins by sharing her vacation on a ten day road trip to Lake Powell. On their trip they hiked beautiful trails in Zion National Park, watched the most amazing sunsets reflecting off Lake Powell, enjoyed tranquil campfires under the clearest skies with bats flying overhead at Lone Rock Campground, and rock climbed at The Pit in Flagstaff. Doesn’t that sound like so much more fun than staying in a stuffy hotel?
Traveling this way is really a lost art. -Robyn
- I wonder what it’s like to stand at the top of Half Dome?”
- “I wonder what the salt air in California smells
- “I can’t wait to see how deep the Grand Canyon really is.”
- “What are people in Croatia like?”
- “How amazing is French food really?
She makes you really start to see how we’ve limited ourselves all these years and the seemingly impossible suddenly starts to become reality. And, it isn’t all about nature. She’ll walk you through exploring cities (and local food!) too.
In this book you’ll learn how to decide where to go, decide how much money you want to spend, the nuts and bolts of camping, including a detailed list of what to pack and how to prepare.
The books covers itineraries for exploring the coast of California, the Redwoods and the “forgotten coast,” Oregon, the Pacific Northwest (I added this yo my bucket list a few years ago!), Colorado, and Arizona & Utah. Each itinerary includes sites to see, places to visit, foods to try, and places to stay. Plus, tons of resources on places that have camping sites. Did you know Hawaii has campsites? And so do other countries??? My mind is spinning with possibilities!
You will grow. Your vision will be come clearer because you will see more beauty in the earth, your body will feel more relaxed because you will know what it’s like to breath clean crisp air, and you will think more deeply because your mind finally had space to contemplate life’s deeper questions, and you will wonder, why didn’t I do this sooner?- Robyn
