I am starting research for a 365 day tour of the bottom 48 starting in 2013. I'm needing help and advice in planning a route. I currently reside in Indianapolis, IN. I'm hoping I can start my route from here. I will spend a week in each state setting up a home base in a 1st or 2nd class city then travel from there to the surrounding areas not exceeding a 2 hour radius.
The idea behind the 365 day project. I am wanting to travel every state in 365 days, running workshops (night photography/long exposure/ light painting) along the way. Also, I would like to participate in as many art festivals as possible to sell work and photograph major abandoned locations throughout the US. There are a lot of factors involved in this journey. I'm hoping for a rough route that will get me started looking in those areas to see if they have the resources needed for a successful project.
Please ask questions, not only to gain a semi accurate route but also to give me things to think about so this journey is successful I have prepared accordingly.
Thanks for your time and help. :)
