Catherine Parker, a Texas native, loves her home state, though she is frequently found behind the wheel of a trusty 4-by-4 driving the back roads and interstates of North America. To date, she and her three school-age kids have driven across the lower 48 states and six Canadian provinces.
When she is not exploring, she lives in the Austin area with a house full of animals. Catherine writes for guidebooks, magazines, newspapers and online publications. She also publishes a website, CarfulOfKids.com.
