Roadtrip '99!! We've graduated from College (or will be soon)and are
embarking upon the mother of all road trips as a last hurrah to the carefree college
life before settling down to jobs and careers. Being from California, our trip takes
us tothe unexplored great cities of the midwest and east coast: Chicago, Cleveland,
Boston, New York, Washington DC, Trouteville (YES!!), Nashville, and all the cities
in between. Being the information age, we have enabled our friends and family to
watch our progress via live updates to this page using a Toshiba digital camera. Updates
will be posted as the trip progresses!!
7/17/99 - DC was great, and it was great to tour the capital and catch up with
our good friend Lonnie from High School. Let me tell you, $1 drinks for three guys who
have dropped a lot of cash in the high-rolling cities of NYC, Boston, and Chicago was a
great thing, and we had a good time hanging out with Lonnie's friends from George Washington.
Unfortunately, because of a missed opportunity to download the previous day's pictures,
there are only 4 pictures of Washington. But NYC days 1 and 2, the drive to DC, and our
stay in Washington have all been uploaded. As for Troutville and the adventures we've had
since DC, go here to get a short narrative of our adventures
south of the Mason Dixon Line.
7/14/99 - Halfway done! Whew! We have finally left NYC and not a minute too soon. For Michael and
Todd, it started on a bad note, as the Big Apple made a horrible impression. Dave was able
to put aside the smell and congestion and enjoy from day one. Michael and Todd finally came
around and all agree... Nice to visit... You'd have to pay a lot to get us to live there!
Now... we're on to Washington D.C. and our nation's capitol. Our good friend Butter, who
works with Burbank's Congressman James Rogan (R) - California, has hooked us up with a tour
of the Capitol Building, and hopefully the White House (Our fingers are crossed, but our
breaths are not being held).
As for updates... As soon as we get some more batteries for the camera, we can download the
pictures and put them up. There's not a lot from NYC, and not much from the trip (Jersey
and PA are pretty boring).
An added feature... Michael is making a little account of the trip's activities and it's
pretty interesting how he puts it... Take a look!
