“Offthebeatenpath …” it’s because to get to most of the places I go, I take back roads so I / we can see more of this great country.
I would put some of the routes in the posts, and I have, but not knowing where you are coming from makes it hard to give you driving directions. And sometimes, they are just – Back roads.
Back roads = less traffic, less gas stations, less places to stop to eat or pee, but much more relaxing.
Remember, like I tell my kids and wife occasionally, “no, we’re / I’m not lost, we’re taking a little adventure”.
