Yeah, of course. I'll have a better idea of my ETA and free time in a couple days. I don't think I'll be taking a laptop, but I can get at my gmail from my phone.

The sad part is I'm from Cleveland -- well, 20 miles east of Cleveland -- and I've never been there.

I'm taking a little grill. Stocking up on steaks and chops in Omaha sounds like a good plan.

Thanks.

Yeah, but I look tiny next to the van. No one will know.

Pete,
If you plan on continuing on the I70 after Denver, I highly recommend the San Rafael Swell in Utah. It is an amazing place that is quite desolate. Alot of petroglyphs, pictographs and dinosaur tracks. Great dry camping near a place called the Little Grand Canyon. It is all dirt roads and completely drivable on the main roads. I had the whole place to myself.

That's cool. I also found roadfood.com, somewhat accessible via the browser on my phone, I think I'm set. Now, if I can just stay out of Hooters and Cracker Barrel it'll be a good trip.

Pete:

If you are heading through PA & depending on which way you are heading from Harrisburg, I'd highly recommend stopping at Clem's BBQ in Port Matilda, PA. That is one of the best places for BBQ that I have ever had! I travel all over the U.S. & have stopped at many BBQ places. This place is great. It looks like a dump on the outside but the food is 1st rate.

If you are over that way, get in touch with me. If I'm home & not away for work, I'll meet you & your father-in-law there & buy you dinner.

Thanks guys. I'm printing up the thread and stapling it to my dash for future reference. My stomach thanks you as does, I'm sure, my father-in-law. He's threatened me with lutefisk when we visit an ex-pat Alaskan living in North Dakota. We'll see how it goes.

Hopefully I'm out of here Friday morning.

Speaking of food I've discovered a great new diet. Take a vehicle that gets mileage as low as 5mpg for the day -- climbing slowly from Kansas to Denver in a wicked headwind the whole way pulling a large trailer -- fuel it with something that costs between $4 and $5 a gallon, then drive 7,000 miles. You pretty much loose your appetite. I look just like Kate Moss now.

Regardless, we had a fun if fast trip. Sadly, I actually only had one food item off the list. It was, of course, the chicken gizzards, at Cc's Family Cafe in Glendive MT. It was diner so they didn't come with cauliflower. Every other meal timed out to not be near one of the places on the list or was at someones home. I'm kind of disappointed. We did eat fairly well anyway, though.

I've been threatening my daughter with a cross country trip home from college when she graduates in a couple years. That will be more of a leisure cruise so we can go out of our way to eat well.


Pete

Ed-
You mentioned Livingston... I wonder if the Roadkill Cafe still exists in Big Timber. It used to be a favorite when we fished the Boulder River.
Bill.
