Headed out

I moved my leave time back from 5AM this morning to 2-3PM this afternoon. To give me more time to do things right...I just didn't have enough time to get everything done. Yesterday I did so And kept doing it until about 3Am. I'm almost always a night owl and it works against me when any events call for early wake times. I bought a lot of gear too...which I'll be posting my experiences with as I go along the trip.

My route has changed a bit. While the extreme southern US is pretty and something I'd like to see, the extreme heat is something I'd like to avoid. Instead of Corpus Christi and some of the more southern routes, I'll be stopping in Phoenix tonight, then up to Flagstaff the next day. I'll be going along 40 but probably not ON 40...I'll be doing as much 2 lane state route roads as possible, unless the scenery sucks or something. Here is today's plan:

Then tomorrow, on up to Flagstaff. I'd kind of like to see meteor crater, maybe even camp there. But I need to cover some distance so that kinda depends on the weather and how I'm feeling.

Thanks for the good words everyone. From this point on, I'll be doing this from the road. Woo hoo!
