    Soon I will be departing on a drive across the Country. My planned route takes me over 10,000 miles and through 19 states. On route I will be attending the 2nd Annual National G8 Meet (Bettendorf, IA) and GoatRun 2011 (Las Vegas, NV).

    Most of the driving will be on backroads, avoiding the interstates. I have spent countless hours looking at maps and planning routes that travel every twisty road I can find. How twisty is the journey? For example, the direct route from St. Louis to Washington DC to Nashville is 1479 miles… my route is 4845 miles!

    Most of the days are limited to 6-8hrs of driving, but many of them are 300 miles of almost non-stop twisty roads. Fortunately, I was able to plan ahead and book nice hotels along the journey… and I’m not paying for a single one of them (thank you non-stop travel for work)!

    Stay tuned for updates as I make the journey, as I hope to have daily entries on my blog.
