BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) – A Michigan couple has completed a quest to visit all 3,108 counties in the lower 48 states with their trip to Nantucket.
Jennifer and Jonathan Riehl completed their journey this week when they boarded a ferry to the island.
The Riehls, of Hancock, Michigan, have done it all in the same vehicle – a green 1999 Dodge Intrepid with more than 540,000 miles.
They say they have had their share of adventures, including encounters with bears and extreme weather, including an avalanche, a landslide, and blizzards.
They started in 2006 with small trips, and Jenn, a research scientist, and Jon, an engineering instructor, now typically drive about 50,000 miles a year.
Their next goal? Finish visiting all the counties in Alaska and start on Hawaii.
