The Census Dotmap by Brandon Martin-Anderson is pretty amazing when you think about it — it gives each of us who live in the United States (all 311,591,917 of us) a dot right where we live.
We’re going old-school — throwing the kids in the back and driving across the country to see the wonders of these United States. Our basic vacation requirements are: cool weather, parks away from the crowds, and mountains and/or the ocean. So, here we go — Olympic National Park and Glacier National Park in two weeks. Kudos to my wife, Aimee, who arranged for amazing places for us to stay near ONP and GNP. She has a knack for finding us the coolest places. We’ll be off dark and early Friday morning. I suspect I’ll be the only conscious (semi) being in the expedition until about Kansas City.
leg 2: Seattle to Kalaloch Cabins on the Pacific Ocean. We’ll spend five days in the rainforest and on the incredible rocky beaches of nearby Olympic National Park. It’s also Sasquatch and vampire country.
This is a really great map of the most remote areas of the Earth. The winner–a place on the Tibetan plateau that is 3 weeks travel to the nearest city of 50,000 or more. The map shows more remote areas in darker, redder shades.
