Coast to coast in 4 days

We just completed our 3rd road trip across the US, but this time the goal was making time over sightseeing. We managed to do it in 4 days without having to do any night-driving. The days were a little long, but overall the drive was pretty reasonable breaking it into 4 legs of about 11-12 hours each.

We managed to find a Whole Foods Market in every city we stopped at overnight--Cleveland, OH, Omaha, NE and Park City, UT. In fact, the Whole Foods in Cleveland and Omaha were super-sized. In Park City the Whole Foods was literally right next door to the Holiday Inn we were staying at.

Whole Foods has all kinds of high-quality prepared foods and salads. So, we were able to stock up and have food for breakfast lunch and dinner all 4 days (eliminating the need to stop!). I would definitely recommend checking out the list of stores on the Whole Foods website, before planning a trip like this.

Cheyenne, Wyoming

Even though time was of the essence we did manage to make a quick pit stop in Cheyenne, Wyoming to buy some Western Wear at The Wrangler. Housed in a big red brick building just off the freeway it's hard to miss. Great selection of western shirts, boots and hats.

At some point I would love to go back to Cheyenne for Frontier Days (July 18-26 2009) which is huge rodeo event there.
