Day One...

July 6, 2010

After an early morning departure from the Budget rental car location at JFK, we hopped in our car and tried to beat early NYC traffic. It turns out we won and were in New Jersey before we knew it. Jersey quickly became Pennsylvania… and before we knew it, we were still in PA. It turns out Pennsylvania is quite long. It does however have lovely rest stops. Our first day goal was to get as far west as possible so that we arrive at Independence, MO on the earlier side on our second day so we can visit the National Trails Frontier Museum before they close at 4:30. Then we realized that time is on our side as we head west… and we gain an hour when we pass through St. Louis. So it all looks like good news so far. We are currently resting up in Terra Haute, Indiana after completing the first 819 miles of our journey. Ahhh... sleep and back on the road tomorrow morning.


  1. Day 2? The group realized it's folly and turned back.

  2. It's a Big Country! Hope you're finding clean restrooms. ...awaiting future posts
    Bon Voyage!

  3. I am so excited for you two! Due to heat and engery challenges in NJ, I have just now been able to follow your blog... and I might add it is terrific. Feel like we are journeying out there right along side you!
    You will see from my comments, they are a bit delayed but very interested and excited! Take care you two and enjoy every second!
