Another Road Trip - Winter 2007

Barely back from the first road trip this winter and am off on the second. This one promises to be more challenging. For one, we intend staying rough. For example, no hotel-staying. It's going to be tent-camping on designated grounds on the way.

The route we are taking is pretty much The Great Mother road with detours on the way. Specifically,
Ann Arbor, Michigan -> Chicago, Illinois -> St. louis, Missouri -> Amarillo, Texas, -> Grand Canyon, Arizona -> San Diego, California -> Big Sur, California -> San Francisco, California

This is a total of about 4200 miles (~6700 km). Am then off to Houston, Texas. And if any more energy left, plan to see some more places. Want to do all this in a fortnight.

Promise to fill you in on the details after i return. Wish you a great 2007!

Winter 2006 Road Trip - 1

Yes, i know. Long time, no post. Reason : Did a 1979 mile (~3200 km) great road trip over the last five days with some great company. Well, i shouldn't say I did the trip because all I did was pass expert comments on their driving skills while they did the hard work.

Learnt and enjoyed a lot. Will try and get around to doing at least one real post on some thoughts that came from the trip. Till then, three snaps:

1) From one of the cities we visited. Straightforward to guess which city?

2) MIT campus, Cambridge, Massachusetts (26th December,2006)
3) Boston skyline - across river Charles. Photograph taken from next to the MIT buildings.(26th December,2006)
