Rhodes Trip 2022 – Halfway(ish)

We’re about halfway through our month long trip. It is amazing how fast the time has flown by. We did some fairly big mileage days just to get from Oregon to New Hampshire but we did manage to sneak in a few of the sights along the way. Not long into driving on day 2…
