Click on the map to the right to view the (mostly accurate) path I took on my 7 week road trip that started in February. I drove it on my own and stayed with friends most of 50 nights. I Mardi Gras'd, saw Mount Rushmore, Niagara Falls and the Corn Palace, and had a hundred other mini-adventures (like sleeping in my car and relying on the kindness of strangers). My daily travelogs and photos can be found in the travelog section. This road trip was the impetus for my website, but I'll continue to post my daily adventures for as long as I feel like it.

I'm taking another road trip in June and July, and I can't foresee an end to my traveling at the moment. Check out the FAQ which will tell you a little more about me, and if you've got any comments or questions, email me.
