Where Should We Go In the West North Central States?

The best vacation we’ve ever taken was to the Black Hills and Badlands, with a dash of Devil’s Tower thrown in for good measure.

We’ll be visiting all three again on the tour. But what ELSE should visit and see and do and eat and jump over in the great west north central US? By which we mean Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Dakotas North and South.

By now you are a well-oiled machine, actively longing for Robbi’s link. Here it is, my friends, ready to receive your wisdom.

The Busload of Books Tour is a year-long project to promote literacy and raise awareness of the challenges facing our nation’s public schools.

Author/illustrator duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr (that’s us) and our four kids will spend the 2022-2023 school year traveling the country in a school bus/tiny home, visiting Title I schools in all 50 states (plus DC), and giving away 25,000 hardcover books to students and teachers from underserved communities.

As we travel, we will be blogging, vlogging and posting frequently to social media. All of our content will be appropriate for bringing families and students along on our ultimate road trip.
