This website documents the travels of Scott Kipp.  I have trouble keeping up with where I’m going some of the time, so this website may help you find me.  Here’s where I plan to be over the next few months:


May 25-July 10th – Roadtrip from LA to Kansas City with stops in Las Vegas, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Escalante National Monument, Monument Valley, Santa Fe, Taos, Denver, McCook, Manhattan, Kansas City, Wichita, and a few more places.

July 14th – My retirement party in Santa Barbara

July 15th -27th – Sierra Nevada

July 29th-August 26th – Esalen Retreat Center

September 11th-October 17th – Japan -Amy and I will be staying in Tokyo for the first 8 days and will go to a Yomiuri Giants game in the Tokyo Dome.  Then we’ll stay on Naoshima Island for 3 nights and plan from there!

October 26th-November 2nd – Lemon Rally from Chicago to LA – Chris and I will go the whole way while Rob and Ryan will take the first leg from KC to Chicago and Baxter Springs, KS.  In Baxter, Mark, Eric and Bobby will take the second leg to Albuquerque.  From Albuquerque to Vegas will be Dead Eye Dave and Stacy.  On Halloween, Amy and Cheri will fly into Vegas and finish Route 66 to Santa Monica.

November 10-December 28th – road trip from California to Tucson, Carlsbad Caverns, Wimberley, TX, Crystal Bridges and Kansas City.


December 28th-January 15th – Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico

March 15-April 15th – Peru – Macchu Picchu and Lake Titicaca

These plans are tentative and they become less clear after November 2018.  Amy and I want to keep our options open in the new year and do what feels best.  We mainly have the agenda of having fun and be adventurous.  We’ll do what we need to do to have fun and find fulfilling travel.


A Year on the Road

I’m going to be on the road for a year and I want to document what I do and think and see.  I’ve written a few blogs and the most relevant one to this website is my travel blog about living in an RV with Grace called Long Long Trailer.


I’ve been an engineer for 25 years and I’ve always wanted to be more creative and travel.  I’ve traveled for work for the last 18 years at McDATA/Brocade/Broadcom, but I want to travel for fun.  What is fun varies, but I want to do more extended travel to remote places and get off the beaten path.
