Father And Son Road Trip Across United States

By Paul C.

In August, 2013, I realised a life-long ambition: to do an American road trip with my son. Sean (who was 17 at the time) and I drove from Alington, Virginia to Victoria, British Columbia in our 2013 Ford Mustang V6. We drove across the United States and back in 2 weeks, visiting many amazing places along the way, including Chicago, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone Park, Big Sky, Seattle, Fargo, and Minneapolis. We also managed to meet with family (uncle, aunt, and cousins) in Victoria, BC, whom we hadn't seen in more than 20 years (and whom my son had never met). Although the pace was hectic, as we spent most days driving all day long, it was an incredible once-in-a lifetime experience. We are Irish born and bred, having moved to the US (Arlington) in 2012, so we are relatively new to America. The cross-country road trip was a dream come true, but also an incredible way to discover this beautiful country in a legendary car. Perfect!
