Philly Cheesesteak
2021 Spring

Philly Cheesesteak

Philly Cheesesteak is the obvious choice in Philly. I found this great place called John’s Roast Pork on a food blog. I drove several hours to get there, and very nearly missed out. I got one of the last sandwiches of the day! It had very little cheese. It was mostly this great moist and …

Liberty Bell
2021 Spring

Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell was forged with the words “Proclaim LIBERTY Throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof.” It was meant to be hung in the Pennsylvania state house (now called Independence Hall). But it cracked when it was first rung. They tried reforging it twice, but every time it was rung, it would …

2021 Spring

Washington DC

This city is not just full of monuments, it is a monument. There is so much history everywhere. From the capitol building that Canada burned down after we tried invading and annexing them, to the Lincoln Memorial which for some reason was full of Nazis when I visited. It’s a wild and complex place full …

New River Gorge National Park
2021 Spring

New River National Park

New River is actually an ancient river! It’s all fours and fives but I’ve heard people enjoy rafting it. The water was extremely high today when I was there, and all the roadside stops were taped off with signs warning of “Extreme Danger.” @cjtrowbridge New River National Park ♬ original sound – CJ Trowbridge Still …

Hot Brown Sandwich
2021 Winter

Kentucky: Hot Brown (Sandwich)

The Hot Brown is a very special sandwich. All the guides agreed it was the best single dish to get in Kentucky. It even has its own wikipedia page… A Hot Brown sandwich (sometimes known as a Louisville Hot Brown or Kentucky Hot Brown) is an American hot sandwich originally created at the Brown Hotel …

Mammoth Cave Entrance
2021 Winter

Mammoth Cave National Park

This was a weird place. They say it’s normally better because of covid. Basically the cave that’s currently open is just a long boring hallway and then when you get to the end you turn around and come back. As you can see, there are no stalactites, no stalagmites, no lilly pads, nothing to see …

Great Smoky Mountains National Park
2021 Winter

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains are a really cool place. Basically the clouds hug the mountains which makes them look smoky. This is the most popular of all the national parks whuch surprises me given how grand the grand canyon is. Check out this video… @cjtrowbridge##greatsmokymountains ##greatsmokymountainsnationalpark ##nationalpark ##nationalparks ##roadtrip ##adventure ♬ original sound – CJ …

Congaree National Park
2021 Winter

Congaree National Park

(View the full album here) This one is really just a spite park. It was created to prevent development in the area. It’s just a normal forest with hiking. There isn’t really anything remarkable about it. (Video) They were also doing prescribed burns so the trails were closed. lmao. So basically it was just a …

Cuban Sandwich
2021 Winter

Florida: Cuban Sandwich

(View the full album here) This was a really amazing sandwich, though kind of terrifying experience to actually get the sandwich… (Video)   I have had Cuban Sandwiches before but this was much better. I read somewhere that there is something about the way they prepare the ham in traditional cuban sandwiches that is different …

Everglades National Park Entrance
2021 Winter

Everglades National Park

(View the full album here) The Everglades! What a cool and interesting place. There is lots of sun for the solar panels and lots of nature to explore. The weather in Florida is great this time of year. It stays warm and breezy, even at night, and it’s not too humid yet. This is my …

Hot Springs National Park
2021 Winter

Hot Springs National Park

Hot Springs is a small town in Arkansas. It’s also a National Park. It’s very strange as far as national parks go, to have the park and town mixed together like this. There is no entrance fee for example and the visitor center is a shop in the town. (Video) The only hot springs are …
