Those European stories have generated a lot of positive feedback from people, particularly people who want to travel abroad but have found a thousand reasons not to. So I dug up some of my old U.S. road trip stories that I had sent via email, and have posted them here.
I hope it will inspire others, particularly women in the US, to travel and see their country, and even go outside the borders of the country. I realize that the stuff from the 1990s is very dated, but I hope still worth reading. At the very least, you will get some decent leads on where to camp.
