Day One, Unit One

Units #1 & #2 / 412 - Washington Monument (National Memorial) and Thomas Jefferson Memorial Wow. Here we go. Day 1 of 1,116 to visit those 400+ red dots above. If you count back to June 2014, when I started planning this journey in earnest, that's about 700 days of preparation to see (currently) 411 national parks. And I intentionally started that journey today, April 29, 2016. April 29 has meant many different things to me over the years: 1986 - 1989 - What are these "days" you speak of?

GPS' and Smartphones have made these feel obsolete, but as a kid, when my family would make 28-hour drives to Florida, I'd spend hours staring at a Rand McNally atlas. Those hours made me thirsty to travel, and also gave me a pretty kick-butt understanding of U.S. geography (not to mention hundreds of fantasy road trips). Here's the Rand McNally atlas I used to create my 2011-2012 "Dream Road Trip" map and am using for my National Parks Road Trip map too! Get your own on Amazon.com f
