Epic US Road Trip 2017 Introduction

With almost 10 million km² of terra firma crisscrossed by some 6.5 million kilometres of road, the world’s longest & biggest road network, the US probably warrants more than one epic once-in-a-lifetime road trip experience. So, and a year-plus after our 9,510-mile Epic US Road Trip 2016, we hit the US road once again. Welcome to Epic US Road Trip take II, the 2017 edition, 33 days of intense road-trippin’ centered on the pioneering history of the Eastern seaboard’s original Thirteen Colonies (Northern, Middle & Southern Colonies) & leaf peeping the vibrant hues of a New England fall/autumn. But 33 days & 7,100-plus miles meant we also found time for plenty of music; (more of) the steamy Deep South; rural, back road drives; and – whoops! – even a foray (too far) north across the border into Canada. Yes, it was epic all over again. We know of no other way.

Hartland, New Brunswick, Canada. October 26, 2017.

Is an Epic US Road Trip still an Epic US Road Trip if it involves Canada? Spilling across the border. Day 30 in a very wet Hartland, New Brunswick, Canada.

Forget all of your preconceptions. Take a look at America the way it really, truly is today; a land of limitless road trips, astonishing natural beauty and diverse multiethnic cities from coast to coast. Pay your respects to the heritage of Native American tribes, then explore the kitschy side of stateside life at oddball roadside attractions. Taste the American dream – sweet as apple pie, strong as homemade moonshine – for yourself.
