    Does anyone have a map of the U.S. with the roads highlighted that were part of the Route each year? I would like to see the spiderweb of roads we traveled over the years.
    PT Sportwagon: I didn't start till 2005 and I thought every year was the best vacation of my life, sorry your cup is half empty. I wouldn't trade my 13 Long Hauls and 50 new friends for anything.

    Well maybe 2018 in the 53 Desoto wagon wasn't the best vacation ever, but I did meet a lot of good people on the side of the road . . . everyday ! DTB

      There were some long drives on that first trip; and nothing but pay phones and paper maps.
      Calling 1-800 to book a motel and hope you made it there!

        His list shows Ca. to P.C.B. Was thinking it was Mass. to P.C.B. At the time I was President (Head Cat Herder) of the Mopar club in Ft. Walton Bch., Fl. A guy called and said the club could make a little $ if we could provide 30 members for 2 days. Not doable & I didn't bother to go to PCB to check it out. A co-worker went on the '03 Tour and that was all he could talk about for a month or two. I began to think I'd missed something. Did 2 stops on the '05 Tour & have long or short hauled most of them since.

          If I'm missing something or information is incorrect, I need to make it right.



          Anyone have any documentation of the 1999 East Danvers MA to Panama City Beach FL tour?

            HRM had an article about a Tri-50s Chevy with Mopar power train & the rear axle was too wide. pretty sure it was the Mass. to PCB one.

                We still use our paper map and printed out directions...do cheat a little and put the hotel directions into waze. During the route though don't usually use electronics at all.

                    I intended to stop at a Loves & get a new one, but that didn't happen.
