44 states in 5 months

Hi,
last year, we travelled thru the US and hit 44 states.
The total trip was 22,500 miles long (150 miles per day)

We startet in Baltimore MD, where we picked up our RV, and made a clockwise loop via Key West, California, Oregon to Halifax in Canada, where we shipped our RV back home to Germany.

Here are some of our photos:

30 Minutes for the full experience: https://youtu.be/vkYoISHk5aQ

enjoy!

Holy Mackerel ! You've been on the move. I thought us doing 44 states in 14 months as of tomorrow was crazy.
