Here we go I am prepping for a cross-country trip that I will begin in mid-August. I will be making it on a VFR (Obviously), and expect it to take about 6 weeks. The reason I'm even bringing this up is because while I was explaining this to wgregt, he suggested I see if I could post up with fellow forum members on the way across. A wonderful idea, I thought, so I'm asking now: Who will be willing to take in a 21 year old fellow VFR fanatic. Money will be short, so I am offering most kinds of payment; I'll clean your house, your car, wash windows, watch your kids, cook dinner, just about anything. Nothing dirty, now, please. I may be a sexy young man, but I won't tickle your pickle for a place to stay. What I would be more than thrilled to do is take photographs of your motorcycle. I am at the New England School of Photography, studying to become a motorcycle journalist ( name a better job involving motorcycles, cameras, and writing; I dare you), so taking photographs of your bike(s) would not only be good for you (who doesn't like a good pic of their bike?), but it would be good for me too, because I always love some practice. I would stay for one night, maybe two if you want to take a ride together, but I can be unobtrusive if needed. Nothing is set in stone yet, but a general itinerary runs like this: Leave Boston the weekend after the 2nd week in August. I'm going to head straight to Virginia to visit my friend who will (hopefully still) be stationed there. From there, I plan to meander through the Appalachians/ down the coast, depending on where I will be staying. Other than the Coast Guard base in Virginia, the only other stops I know I want to make are: Tulsa, Big Sur, Carmel/ Leguna Seca, Victoria (BC), Toronto, and Quebec, with maybe a quick trip over to Nova Scotia. If you live at or between any of those locations and feel like putting up a polite young man who is only asking for a warm bed/ couch and maybe a meal if you feel up to it, please message me. Any comments/ suggestions/ critiques/ questions of or about my trip are more than welcome.
