Road trip across US of A ; A dream come true!

Decided on doing this drive across the country yesterday, after mulling over it for the past few days, and after hoping to be able to do it "someday" for the past six years!

Monsier Victor Hugo was absolutely right when he said There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. Given that he was of the opinion that Every man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet, I am sure he would be beaming down in approval at my plans to realise my dreams of driving across the length of United States.

JH had spoken about renting a RV and going around US with a bunch of people a couple of years ago, and naturally he came up as the first possible candidate to accompany me on this adventure. Given that he is an amateur photographer, and has time on his hands, I was quite hopeful that he will agree to join me. And he didn't disappoint me when I called him up!

So I need to figure out the earliest date at which I can start on this trip, list out some of the must see places & people on the way, book the flight to San Francisco, rent a one-way car rental from SFO to EWR with possibly an in-built GPS, find out about friends we could meet and stay with on the way, get details about hotel accommodation and camping information on the way, start a new blog dedicated to the road-trip (after all this is going to be a once in a life time experience, and hence deserves a separate blog of its own!), finish the must-do things in NY and pack some food and snacks among other things.

Life is beautiful when you are doing what you wanted to do for a long time!!

Perhaps the Who will buy... song from Oliver! comes close to express my current state of mind.

Created the Pacific to Atlantic blog; further updates on the trip will be over there. As of now, it looks realistic that I start on this journey during the week of July 9th.
