this is our 2015 fall trip, it is the old rt80 dixie overland route following as much on original rt80 roads as possible, as with rts 66, 50, 40 the national rd, much were decommisioned years ago but at one time these roads were the hot spots of travel from east to west after the big wars 1&2... we also plan a few side trips to several natl., parks, parks we have seen and returning to see how much change... follow along at your own pace by keeping this link...
