Well, I decided I can't let Rennie and Al have all the good times out traveling around, so I picked up a new rig last weekend for myself. I figure I'm not working, so I have all the time in the world. I'm planning to hit all 50 states, although admittedly Hawaii is going to be a challenge.
I'll start in a week or so and do the southern states while the weather is cooler, and should make my way up north to see the New York contingent around June, then on up to Travis' place in Maine by about July. (Looking at the map, the whole ride back to Southern California will be downhill, so that part should be easy.) I'm ready to start planning the route now and I'm open to suggestions.
Oh yeah, here's my new rig. It's not nearly as nice as Rennie's, but I'm not bringing the dog, so I don't need the extra room. Also, no real need to have the bicycle hung on the back like Rennie's:
