In our 20 weeks travelling America, we covered all 48 mainland states, 39 cities and drove well over 13,650 miles.

That’s Lands End to John O’Groats 16 times, for all the UK residents out there. 116 and a half times round the M25, but with decidedly better views.

And this was our route:Pretenniless USA Road Trip Route Map
