Wikipedia U. S. Route 20- Plan a 2017 Oliver Adventure. Make NO reservations. Make NO plans other than if a place catches your interest… make those Custer Decisions that are immediate and totally… well, unplanned. YOU and your family will find this an adventure of a lifetime.
“The ‘0’ (zero) in an east-west United States Highway indicates that Highway 20 is a coast to coast route. It spans 3,365 miles and is the longest road in the United States.”
If you are adventuress and want to see the RURAL USA in its finest representation…. US Highway 20 is it. This is the very unknown ‘Gateway to Yellowstone Park.
Make detours to the Black Hills from Fort Robinson, Nebraska.
Make detours to Northeast Wyoming to Devil’s Tower, around the Black Hills to Sturgis, South Dakota before, during or after the Bike Rally. Caverns. Hot Springs. Mount Rushmore. Crazy Horse Monument. Gold Mines.
The Buffalo Bill Museum at Cody, Wyoming and stay to the west at the Buffalo Bill Reservoir where you can camp… very reasonably.
Make detours to Montana… The Custer Battlefield aka Battle of the Little Big Horn aka Custer’s Last Stand. Headwaters of the Missouri River. The Yellowstone River and camp along the sandy beaches. Butte and its HUGE open pit copper mine that is ‘green and blue’ water sloshing around in it. Pan sapphires near Phillipsburg, Montana for a small fee. The Wisdom River south of Wisdom Montana and Boondocking in the National Forest…
Idaho… my goodness. Just looking into the canyon cut by the Columbia River, Snake River… should be enough. The giant Potato Heads of Idaho… may be observed. Rank up there with the Easter Island Moai Statues. Well… not exactly as giant Potato Heads have not yet been discovered in Idaho… but you can look for them.
Your Oliver should not be gathering dust from being parked. Take two weeks and be spontaneous. This is suppose to be an Adventure… not a RV Park $35 to $75 experience. Learn how to fill your fresh water tank on the road. Find dump stations. Visit each State’s Welcome centers… and many have FREE dump stations or can point the direction to where they can be found.
Do not follow the 99% of RV’s and Trailers doing the same old stuff. Oliver’s and their owners are… SPECIAL. A minority among true Boondocking capable Travel Trailers and should be used as one. Any fool can make reservations and camp with a hundred other trailers. Be proud of your Oliver and you will… once you get the hang of Base Camping and being spontaneous.
If you can go six days Base Camped at minimal cost and relax at a full service RV Park… the money saved is WHY you have an outfitted trailer to begin with. Unless I am unique among trailer owners… which I hope not.
Highway 66….? Not even close to a US Highway 20, which most is two lane and rural once in Nebraska. Although Highway 66 is more developed until you get into the Southwestern US… Highway 20 hits the small towns whose occupants are actually ‘happy to see you’.
