I drive exclusively in the Mtn west now and absolutely love it. This is a grand and beautiful country and I'd urge any new driver to go out and experience it all if you can before driving dedicated. Being an old man I've had the opportunity to see nearly all of it. From the slow beauty of the south to the frenetic race of New York City. The gently rolling plains and the absolute grandeur of our mountains.

This is truly the best place on earth. I have sailed the seas and seen a good part of it and like Dorothy said "there's no place like home"

Be safe out here and enjoy the ride and if you're lucky enough someday you'll get to Montana. Or as John Stienbeck called it "The last best place"

I live in the Midwest (KC, MO) but I enjoy driving CO, WY, MT, ID. love the mountains, snow and ice don't bother me, just high winds and 20,000 lbs or less load bother me lol.

You're right David. We go out full and come back to the DC empty. I80 in Wyo is NEVER fun on the way back to the barn. We sometimes do backhauls but I've haven't had one from Wyo yet

I would love to drive out west at least once just to check it out. That said though The northeast has everything though. Mountains, ocean, big cities, m*******s, good weather, and terrible weather. Why would I want to go anywhere else. I really do love it up here

I prefer the deep south. Down here we get very little snow and you don't have to worry about mountain passes.

PNW has been my favorite place thus far. Especially in Oregon, but really, it's all gorgeous-- some of it's not to my taste (the Southwest bores me), but it does have its beauty.

Some people are like tree's, nice and smooth on the outside, hard as a rock on the inside. I'm more like a cactus, tough and dangerous on the outside, inside I'm a softee. Southwest.

We have been to all 48. They all have their good points. Northern California and Oregon stick out in my mind
