Road Trip!!!

[ #10175 ]

So, I just went through the .com rite of passage and got downsized, but I'm not down about it. I'm hoping to get some freelance writing gigs and maybe the odd consulting day (but I'm so not banking on that consulting thing) and, what with one thing and another we should be okay.

But, it means Gill and I actually have some time on our hands. And Gill has her newly discovered big sister in Michigan. And YAPC's in Boca in June. And TPC is in Portland in July. And...

ROAD TRIP!

The only thing that's planned so far are the start and end dates (and places), at least one of the intermediate destinations, and a plan to spend some time in the Appalacians in search of some real(ish) mountain music.

If anyone can offer a bed for a night or two for a couple of Brits doing Boca->Michigan->Portland with laptop, view camera and rental car I'd be really pleased to hear about it.

      However, looking at the map, it looks like a longer, but more rewarding and with less doubling back, route would involve driving a large chunk of the length of th

        If you want to know driving times try Map Quest [mapquest.com] as it has fairly decent estimates for driving in the northern countries in North America.

        • I think that might just be too insane even for me. And Gill just drew the line at three technical conferences in one year.

          Shame though.

          Mapquest is very cool though, I've already punched in the possible extended route and it looks like it's vaguely doable.
