America trek - part ii

March 01, 2006 | 1 Minute Read

Now, this one is going to be a bit harder - I have to write it all here and now, rather than just dishing up a pre-prepared one...

So, its probably a good idea to head back to the start, and tell you about it proper like... So:

I headed off to travel from Los Angeles, through to New York, over a sum total of 19 days... It might be easier with a bit of a picture:

Unfortunately, New Orleans (pronounced “norlans” apparently) had that bugger of a hurricane a while back, so its a little “disorganised” at the moment (feel free to let your mind ponder on what kind of disorganisation a hurricane can do to a city...). But, its a complete mess, and they were still finding bodies, so we ended up going to Memphis instead. General itinerary looked something like this:

  • Los Angeles
  • Death Valley
  • Las Vegas
  • Grand Canyon
  • Monument Valley (aka Navajo Nation)
  • Texas (El Paso, Big Bend National park)
  • San Antonio
  • Dallas
  • Memphis
  • Atlanta
  • Washington DC
  • New York

I do believe there were a few more places we stopped, and a few that we stayed a few nights at, but that was the general gist of it all. I just posted about the first 6 days of the tour, which covered up to Monument Valley or so. There's probably more detail that i can add about that, but I might stop this one about now, and continue in another post...
