    I sucked at taking pictures. We crossed 3 state lines. Travelled 520 miles. We stopped in STL and visited the city museum. That's the dopest place I've seen in a long time. We hit up the gateway arch too.
    We are in KC for the night.

    I must say, for being 7 my son is doing awesome. He sits in the back, plays his video games and is generally very good. He's asked me 2 or 3 times some version of are we there yet, but it's always like 50 miles from the end of the trip. Which to me, is pretty impressive.

    We hit some gnarly weather near stl too.

    The mustang is averaging 24mpg at 75-80. I've noticed it drops pretty fast above 70. At 65 it'll do 27. But still, 24 at those speeds hauling all the crap I've got in it is pretty good.

    I had a kid in a s550 Ecoboost race me today too. He had exhaust and a big from what I could hear. My daughter noticed him. She said, dad this car keeps revving up at you. I think he wants to race.
    So we went and my daughter rolled the window down to wave at him as we drove away lol. 9e6325eabeefe1d602e1bb7ccfbe41fb.jpg 2f98e20579ea0971bd2d020c91dca38a.jpg 1dec78a9d8129d7b601721f1252ac7c5.jpg 1b017df1253fb4cbe9aaaa71c6c46a05.jpg 90868e5ddd6e0fc001219816275d96b6.jpg a2876a404c5c75115627dc45ae8db3bc.jpg

    Glad you got to see the city museum. Bummer you couldn't spend more time there though. I haven't been in a few years and you could easily spend a whole day in there back then.

    Another day down. Almost 400 miles today. In Sioux Falls for the night. Toured the town, checked out the falls. Tomorrow we are going to the bad lands and keystone.

    My daughter has managed and interesting setup to watch movies on her phone while bored(Iowa is boring)

    we saw the wiener mobile when we were in Yellowstone, being chased by the Mr. Peanut mobile. Random as hell.

    Looks like a great trip so far!

    I hope I can do something like this with my boys one day. Looks like such an adventure and making those memories is priceless.

    I took my oldest on a 9 day 4000 mile camping trip 2 years ago. I like road trips because you spend a ton of time together just talking and such.

    Legen... wait for it.... Dary.

    There's a high likelihood that I'll just have my one boy who is about to turn 4. I hope to do something like this with him in a few years. Give mom a week off and make it a guys' trip in the 500.

    Took a drive through the Badlands. Took an unpaved detour through nowhere South Dakota. 40 miles of gravel roads in a mustang. Found some prairie dogs. Watched the lighting of Mount Rushmore. Pretty good day. Covered another 400+ miles in the process. Tomorrow we'll spend some time at Rushmore and make our way towards Yellowstone.

    Very cool, never did get to see Mt. Rushmore at night.

    Yellowstone is one of my favorite places ever

    Weather was a hot ****ing mess today. 380 miles. Visited Mount Rushmore. Drove through the Black hills and a ton of back roads in Wyoming. Tomorrow we are going to yellow stone and hoping to see old faithful
    Today pushed us over the 2500 mile mark for the trip.

    You guys are killin' it!

    2500 miles and those kids are still smiling. You're definitely doing something really right and clearly have terrific children. Thanks for sharing your trip with the pics. Gets my vote for Best Current Thread in the non-political category.

    Stands a pretty good chance for Best Thread Ever if you just tug that hat brim down a smidge.

    Keep on enjoying. You're making history for your gang. Congrats.
