Dear Friends and Fans Club
I just wanted to let you know that my road trip have been a success, well at least I am now in San Jose CA with all my belongings and sick of watching US highways
Also wanted to thank you all for your support, information, collaboration, points of view, suggestions and concerns.
Here is a brief summary of my trip:
Departure: Newton, MA on Tuesday 22 @ 9am
Total distance: 3852 miles (approx) in 7 days
Cities visited: (at least for a meal): 9 àNiagara Falls, Chicago, St Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Salt Lake City, Reno, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco
Biggest mistake: Enter on my GPS St. Louis, MI instead of MO… this cost me 5 hours extra driving, maybe more douh!
Nights spent in rest areas: just one, thanks to my (stupid) mistake.
Maximum speed reached: 110 mi/hr (160km/hr approx)
Tickets: just one, for speeding. (doing 73 on 50 mi/hr downward slope on the Rocky Mountains, 100 bucks)
Highest price paid for gas: $3.68 per gallon (i.e. $47 per full tank approx)
States crossed: 13
Highest altitude reached: 11,000 ft @ Rocky Mountains
Casualties: A lot of flying insects on my windshield and I almost ran over Bambi in Colorado, but he is fine, just a little scared.
Flat tires and mechanical failures: none
Hitchhikers: tempting, but no.
Biggest deception: Salt Lake City… all the girls (or most) use long skirts…
Arrival: San Jose CA on Monday 28 @ 9pm
Thanks again to all of you
Have a great summer/internship/vacation/whatever and see you all in September!!!
