Four months and change after my altercation with a Porsche, I am back on the road, spinning a route that is basically the reverse of what I planned, though shorter in order to try and complete the circuit before the end of this year. Still, my proposed route includes more than simply hitting the 17 states outstanding. In five months I hope to visit a whole lot more of America.
I plan to leave Cambridge and wind up in Florida in December. As always, weather dictates. Some elements of my route are less ideal than the original plan – South Carolina in August is not ideal – but riding in heat is easier than in cold. I hope to hit all the highlights I’ve envisioned and still spend at least one night in each of the continental United States.
I will resume my daily trip blogs to chart my progress, post a weekly compendium of responses to my question, ‘How will we live tomorrow?’ as well as unique profiles of some responders.
A yellow ribbon is a flexible thing, and my route changes often. If you know anyone along the East Coast, South, Midwest, or Plains states who might like to participate in my project, please send me their contact information. I always welcome the opportunity to meet new people. Please don’t wait for me to post a Trip Blog from their town. By then I’ve already moved on.
