2007 was my first big road-trip it was a lot of fun and very educational as I did so many things wrong. There are a LOT of photos over on flickr for this trip and the makings of a blog at baptacular.com.
This trip feels like a long time ago now, it was something like 11K miles in 21 days, in hind sight that was a lot on a cycle. Being my first outing I also was not really prepared for much of what the road had to offer.
People could not have been cooler, and it was fun as you got a days ride from the coasts how people changed, got to catch up with some great people who I had not seen in some time and generally have a great time.
