    Hey guys, I'm in the middle of driving across the country, from California to NJ. I created a blog specifically for my trip where I'm posting tons of pictures from my trip. I'd love if you could give me any feedback on how to make it better. Thanks!

    That's pretty kool Kash.

    Did something similar about 40 yrs ago, albeit in the opposite direction, from Key West to LA. Of course, I missed Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama... Flew over those. Knew better than to hitchhike across those 3 states. Texas was a little better, but did get driven to the city limits and told never to come back in Junction. Scottsdale on the other hand, you could easily make 5 times the daily minimum wage in about 4 hours spare changing in the street.

    Have a great trip.

    Taking your time or do you have to be in NJ by a certain date?

    Awesome. Did a similar trek when I was in the Navy - going from LA to Virginia taking the southerly route. What an experience that was. It was the time of the LA floods and mudslides. Drove through every weather system imaginable - broke down in Sallisaw Ok, where we were stuck for 3 days. So we drank a lot of cheap pitchers of beer and somehow I learned to two-step - still a little fuzzy as to how that happened. Oh to be 20-something again!

    Look forward to seeing more pics. Safe travels.

    Thanks guys!

    Bob, I'm taking my time, seeing the sites but I do have to be in Jersey by June 24th. Today I'm going to go across to Amarillo, TX and then straight down to Dallas to stay with the fiancee for a few days.

    If you have time, take a detour by Palo Duro Canyon (about 30 miles south of Amarillo). Not as impressive as the Grand Canyon, but still worth a look.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Nice pics. I had intended to do something like this on our trip to AZ summer before last. My photography skills leave a lot to be desired though. I'll second the idea of checking out some of the canyons in Texas.

    My wife and I did a similar trip moving from Florida to British Columbia. We set up a blog using Blogger and a photo gallery using MobileMe, which worked out GREAT.
