My name is Dan Moriarty, and like Dean Moriarty of Kerouac's famed novel, i have the travel bug. I'm currently a freshmen (plebe) at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and have started planning my summer leave. One of my dreams has been to see the great country that I will soon take an active part in defending. As such, I have begun thinking up ideas for a cross-country (or mostly cross country) trip. My time frame run's from May 23 to June 24, but I'd like to spend at least a few days at each end with my family in Massachusetts (45mins south of boston), as well as a few in Columbia, SC, where my best friend lives. Here's just a few bits of info:
The farthest West I've been from New England is Ohio!
I probably won't have a car and will therefore will probably be utilizing buses/hitchhiking (is it legal anywhere anymore?)
Budget runs ~800-1000 dollars
Any tips, advice, ideas, etc would be greatly appreciated!!!
GO ARMY! BEAT NAVY!
