8,000-Mile road-trip taught me route

Four Lessons This 9,237-Mile Road-Trip Taught Me

This was an epic road trip.

In this 17-day (Mar 04 to Mar 20, 2009), 9,237-mile road-trip, we passed through 21 states and, but for north, nearly touched the other three geographical corners of U.S.

(With snow slowing us down and with limited time on hand (we had to report back to the school), we gave up our plan to touch the northern border in Montana.)

The trip was all about fun and exploring a new country – right from ghost town of Jerome to Hollywood, unpaved roads of Perkinsville to 26-lane I-10 near Houston, bustling highways outside LA and D.C. to U.S. 50, the loneliest road in America.

The trip left me with four lessons.
