My MEGA Roadtrip Thread: 48 states in two months

Fastforward to the last page of the thread to see what's going on right now. Or check out http://www.timbotrip.com
Yes, that's right. I AM doing it!!

Firstly, take a look at da map:

Started out on July 20th.
Trip is about 21,000 miles or so, depending on what stops I take and who I visit.
I started a website - http://www.timbotrip.com/ - on which I will make a log of the trip. Not only that - but I'll post in this thread too. I'll post every couple of hours with my progress and any pictures that I take.
On the site, you can see a more detailed list of places I will visit, but it's mostly just a bunch of state capitals, and some other important stuff to see, such as Mount Rushmore, and big California cities.
While you are there, throw me a couple of bucks if you can - I don't have very much money - and gas is expensive. I calculate that fuel alone will cost about $1900. Add to that hotels, and food, and you see we have a heavy undertaking. See the site for details on all that though. Send me more than $35, and I'll send you a postcard from one of the state capitals! Send me more? Well, you'll just have to find out!!

But what I'm really looking for is this: Scirocco folk who will give me a nice homecooked meal, let me crash on their floor, and let me take a shower. A tour of your local area would be awesome as well. I look forward to meeting many people.

//MUAHAHAHHAA!

You should come out to Montauk Point, the very tip of long island. It used to be a WWII military base so theres lots of cool stuff to see. Ever heard of the Montauk projects? Yeah...

Trouble is, with a trip like this - it's hard to make a schedule and stick to it - who knows where I'll be and when!

Timbo, I am an hour and a half north of Augusta, but if you make it up this way you can crash here. Either way, if I know when you'll be in Augusta I'll drive down there. LOBSTER!!!!!

When that blue line on your map hits Chicago, stop in Burr Ridge at my house for a hamburger, a nap, and the three S's (isht, shower and shave).
Or better yet, make a weekend of it if the timing's right.
I'll be out of town 7/3 to 7/10 though.
IM me in case this thread gets lost in the shuffle.

My .02 but Montgomery is pretty lame. I would go through Gulf shores and Mobile, go see Forest Gump is Bayou LAbatre (sp?) instead. A nice stop is to see the Battleship in Mobile and the greatest FREE air museum that I've ever been to is the Naval air museum in Pensacola, FL.
Good Luck!
