April showers are meant to bring May flowers, but other than that and Iron Man 2, May is a holding-pattern month while we wait for the summertime action of June, July and August. Well, it's a holding pattern for some – for Rob and Jan Wilson it's nothing of the kind. The self-described empty nesters have laid hold of a Daimler Sprinter van (we knew it as the Dodge Sprinter until recently), got it fitted out by Airstream and are driving the country to visit 50 national parks.
Called the Sprinter Tour 2010, Rob, an author and photographer, has let loose some fabulous photos of the ground covered so far in the first 11 days. No, it's not quite a U2 rockabout, but it might give you some ideas of what to do with your Summer and Fall and Winter, since they'll be on the road doing 20,000 miles from now to November 30. We might start out with a tour of just the Sprinter 3500; with a bedroom, dining area, bathroom and Carrier air conditioning, our driveway might be as far as we need to go to live well.
