A Guy's Road Trip - kenkistler

I have an ongoing passion for the road less traveled.

Side streets, gravel paths, empty highways... I constantly wonder where they lead? Who explored them? What hidden treasures do they hold? I see every road trip as an opportunity to explore, to find, to experience the new, the missed, or the forgotten.

I gave those parameters to my son recently, and he crafted one of the craziest paths through five states that I have ever seen. I was so proud.


Like thousands of other Southern California wilderness travelers, we headed up the 395 toward the gates of Yosemite, but instead turned right down an empty road toward the wild, lonely, high desert of Nevada. Within a few hours we were wandering around a random radar station, visiting a grocery store that by all outward appearances had been ransacked by the zombie apocalypse, flying down dirt roads across Indian reservations, and exploring a massive ranch that modernity long since missed.

Country Roads

Sure, it took us a few hours longer to arrive in Wyoming, but the experiences, the sights, the memories were well worth any added time.
