After a brief haitus, I'm back on the Forums. For those of you who have only been on RTA a few months, I had taken a month-long road trip, covering all 48 states (12,537 miles) in 27.5 days, during the Summer 2005. We covered most major cities and, with the right timing, even got to witness the space shuttle launch Discovery.
My website that I used to update my excursion is still there:
(My website has since been updated, so this page is archived away and only accessible if you hit it directly. The links to go to my other pages are broken.)
All blogs and pics are still up. I only mention this because you can see first-hand what its like to spend a month with your friends. Of course, I added a little "drama" effect to make you keep reading, but otherwise everything there is accurate. Only the finale "blog" is on that page. Scroll down to the bottom and you'll find the link to read the rest. You'll also find daily pictures on the site (although only the last half is on the page, there's a link at the bottom to see all the pictures I took).
My next goal for this year is to visit Alaska and Hawaii, the last 2 states I need to set foot in and claim my 50. Obviously, I won't be traveling by car to either state, which becomes outside the scope of this forum. :)
I welcome any questions you have, if you are planning to do anything remotely similar, or may have questions about a certain area.
