Cross-country Boston to SF

Hi all,

I've mentioned the trip in a few other threads related to planning and maintenance, but I thought I'd throw up a few pictures here for you to enjoy. I'm currently in Chattanooga, TN headed for somewhere in eastern MS today--I think I'll camp tonight since it's been a few days of hotels. Maybe Tishomingo State Park?

Pictures here:

All best,
Matt

Now with a link that works:

The ride from Boston to DC via New York was pretty difficult (95+, traffic, construction...) but Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway were pretty sublime.

Cool!  Give a yell when you reach N. Texas if you want to give the steed a quick once-over before moving on...

I talked to Matt on Friday for a bit, and we did a run out Lime Creek and back to my office here in Austin.

Here's a photo of our R65s at the gas station where we turned around.
