U.S. Road Trip - July through September, 2003
What follows are the transcribed reports I sent from my road trip to my transcriber. I've cleaned them up somewhat to fix some of the typos and grammatical errors. I'll continue to edit my journal to add missing information. I will eventually add links to pictures. In the meantime, it's already easier to read than the emailed version on Yahoo! Stay tuned...
For those astute readers who've noticed I've mentioned that I drove over 9,000 mile and yet my journal only totals 7,600 miles, well, the 7,600 miles was an estimate. I wouldn't note the odometer reading every day so most days were just based on mileage estimates from the maps. I obviously underestimated. The 9,000 mile figure is directly from the odometer reading when I bought the car versus what it read when I got back to Massachusetts.
