Road Trip! Glenn has left the ranch and driving across the Mountain West with the family

The Beck family decided to end their time at the ranch early this Christmas, and are closing out 2014 with a drive through the mountain West. Glenn took to Facebook to seek advice on where to go, and has been sharing updates and photos from the road.

12/28:

NEED YOUR HELP. We Are leaving the ranch early. Decided to take a car home but we are going way out of our way and see places we have never been.

We want to stop in Reno, Carson city or Lake Tahoe. Any suggestions of what to do, see or stay? Then we want to see the sequoias. Again suggestions of where to stay and where to go?

Final night either Bryce canon or the north ridge of the Grand Canyon.

Just stopped in Malad City at Allen's Drug store. Picked up their world famous Daniel's Croup and Cold Ointment. They've been making it since the 1920's and say it's better than Vicks. We'll let you know!

12/29:

On our way today to Nevada and the to the sequoias.

We borrowed Rascal Flats tour bus. Front window on the highway after an hour delay from a 15 car pile up.

12/30 (early morning):

We just arrived at our hotel in western Nevada, we are staying at an old hotel who's staff leaves around 8pm. It is 1am. Our keys were taped to the front desk with a note.

Crazy great!

To live in a town where you can trust what is happening. I think this is a good sign on the people. We thought maybe everyone might be like this, when the guys who need to travel with the family pulled in to the parking lot on the other side of the hotel. As one of them stepped out of the car, in the pitch black they heard a voice calmly say, " can I help you?" At first they didn't know where the voice was coming from until they saw through the screen door of a little cabin white socks. There behind the door was a man in white socks and apparently little else.

He scolded them for coming in so late, because they woke his wife and she wasn't happy. They apologized and he demanded names and who they were with that would come in so late. It ended nicely. We all felt badly.

After we got the bis unloaded and before we parted for the night, I told them they should have said they were with Obama and that the president just wanted to play though on the local golf course. But they were actually with the irs and "can we get your name sir." .

My guys are far to professional to have done that. But I am not. .

Interested to see if this is a town that hates me or loves me. We find very little in between except those who just don't know me like most non news hound style people,

When we leave this town for the next we will fill you in on the details.

Until then -- from high up in the mountain tops in a strange new land that time has passed by... Good night America.

12/30 (night):

We are just leaving Lake Tahoe. Met some great people. Tara at the powder house and had lunch at one of my new favorite Latin restaurants ever. I would open this franchise! Azul!"

Spent the afternoon at the Hearst castle. Need to talk with Orson Welles daughter about what she remembers her father saying about citizen cane. My tour guide answered all my questions, not sure if Welles will agree,

Now we are on the bus again watching the man in the moon on the blaze and now on the cooking channel ----the donut challenge.

Btw when did cnn decide that it was okay to become a disgusting porn channel. God help us all when Kathy describes the ball drop. Shameful. I can laugh at crude jokes. This isn't smart, clever or funny. Just crude and makes Anderson, who is a friend, into a joke.

Back to the donut challenge!

Just leaving Las Cruces where we stayed the night due to weather. We all can't wait to be in our own bed.

The two kids have started on the cot or pull out couch every night but end up sleeping with us by the AM.

I will miss that someday...just not today:)

Tania and I have our anniversary next week. I don't think either of us are going to be ready for a trip.

Just about an hour out of El Paso and We are being stopped and boarded to see if everyone on the bus is an American. If we answer no, will we get something special? Maybe they will pay for the rest of our trip home as long as it is in the us.

The American Journey Experience is the new home of the car Orson Welles gave to Rita Hayworth. Orson Welles gave this car to his future wife Rita Hayworth for her 24th birthday.

George Orson Welles was an American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter who is remembered for his innovative and influential work in film, radio and theatre. He is considered to be among the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time and his work has had a great impact on American culture.

Every year as Thanksgiving approaches, the fear of politics being brought up at the dinner table is shared by millions around the country. But comedian Jamie Kilstein has a guide for what you should do to avoid the awkward political turmoil so you can enjoy stuffing your face full of turkey.

Kilstein joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to dissect exactly how you can handle those awkward, news-related discussions around the table on Thanksgiving and provided his 3-step guide to help you survive the holidays with your favorite, liberal relatives: Find common ground, don’t take obvious bait, and remember that winning an argument at the cost of a family member won’t fix the issue you’re arguing about.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
