A Cross-Continent Learning Experience
From the Rockies to the Ocean
Day three looks the longest, with a total of 1,121 miles to drive over an estimated 16 hour and 21 minute period.
Luckily, there will be an overnight pit stop in Sacramento to drop Tony off at the airport before I begin the final three hour drive to Monterey.
From Farmland to the Mountains
Day two begins with a cars and coffee event hosted by Steve Myers at his fantastic Skunk River Restoration shop in Ames.
To say he has a little bit of everything is an understatement. With 945 miles and over 13 hours to drive today, Tony and I are going to have to pull ourselves away from all of the fantastic machinery on display. If he begins pulling out his race cars, it’ll be game over.
East Coast to the Mid-West
Day one is going to be our longest single day, spanning 998 miles from Harrisburg, PA to Ames, IA.
According to Google maps the drive should take 14 hours and 37 minutes, but I’m hoping to cut that down by a few hours. Accompanying me on the trip is Tony Intrieri, President? of Rally North America.
Cross-Country in a Roadster
At AutoGuide we love road trips. Any chance there is to drive somewhere instead of walk/fly/boat, we take it.
I may be the guiltiest party here. Aside from my yearly adventures with the charity organization Rally North America, I’ll take any opportunity to get behind the wheel and drive.
