Thanks to Toni - I now know that traveling the backroads instead of interstates is called Shunpiking. Isn't that a neat word?

It originally meant to shun or avoid turnpikes so you wouldn't have to pay the tolls. It's expanded it's meaning to include those of us who wander backroads.

Thanks again Toni for the info.


  1. We shunpiked all the way across the country on Hwy. 50 last spring. Didn't know about that great word for it, though.

    What adorable dogs in your header pic. I want one!!!!

  2. Try Googling Shunpiking. There's another whole world out there!

  3. I have a shunpikers quide for some of the western states that is really informative. Watch out for that house!!!

  4. Wow! I learned something new today!
    I never knew that word existed and now I know the word AND its meaning. Full-timing....what an education!!

    Thanks for stopping by our blog and joining our gang. I am enjoying catching up with guys!!
