My Travel Page

North American Travel

I have driven in all 50 states and in the 7 Canadian provinces that border the 48 contiguous states. With the exception of the national parks that are located in Alaska, I have visited 46 of the 53 current national parks. The national parks outside Alaska that I have not (yet) visited are listed on a separate page.

I have traveled in the following Central American locations:
    Caribbean area (Puerto Rico, Saint Maartin, Bermuda, and the U S Virgin Islands)
    Costa Rica

Foreign Travel
I travel abroad almost exclusively by rented car because I always feel the need to investigate interesting rocks and geologic features that I see along the way.    I have traveled in 19 countries of Western and Central Europe, but have not yet been to the following:
            British Isles (except for England)
            former Yugoslavia

I have also traveled within Africa to both Egypt and Tanzania, and I have traveled within China, but none of these travels involved my driving.
