US northeast ... Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, etc.

US northwest ... Montana, the Dakotas, Oregon, Washington, etc.

US Route 2

US Route 20

US Route 50

The Lincoln Highway

The Dixie Highway


Where all do YOU want to travel yet?

*** SHORT ROAD TRIP, OCT or NOV 2009 ***

Neglected to mention earlier that I plan to travel to Jackson/Big Sandy/Nashville TN and Birmingham AL in October or November. Would be cool to meet people during that trip!



*** 2010 ROAD TRIP ***

Most-likely, this will be to the NE, including NY and Massachusetts, etc. More details later....



*** SEP 2009 road trip UPDATE ***

See this thread for more notes/info, particularly my post of just a bit ago:
