Trading 9-5 for 8,000 Magical Miles


With our retirement dates on the calendar, my husband and I began to plan our Big Trip – driving 8,000 miles to as many national parks as we could using the National Parks Service’s Find Your Park tool to map our route. After purchasing our second Subaru Outback, we set off on our journey from Tennessee. We visited 13 states and 20 national parks, from the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the sands of Death Valley and safely back home. We easily stored a month’s worth of clothes and other supplies in the vehicle. 

This journey was a wonderful chance for us to connect with each other and our beautiful country. The Outback never failed us. We love both of our Subaru Outback vehicles!
