No problem. I became an uncle recently so Iíll see when I can see the new addition to the family.

It's likely I won't get to go check out the new US 35 in West Virginia until the page turns on the calendar.

Still up in the air about going with my brother to Arizona, and what to do during that time he'll be down in the Grand Canyon and I'll have a week to kill.

Other than that, my vehicle situation and finances preclude any county visiting or road clinching trips. And since I've pretty much retired from attending meets, won't be heading to any of those.

I've done some long trips around the Northwest (but always within a day or two of home), so hopefully I'm prepared enough to try this.

So far, my draft route looks something like this: Seattle > Astoria > Crescent City > Sacramento > San Francisco > Sequoia NP > Los Angeles > San Diego > Las Vegas > Grand Canyon > Phoenix > Tucson > El Paso > Albuquerque > Denver > Cheyenne > Rapid City > Sioux Falls > Omaha > Lincoln > Kansas City > Oklahoma City > Dallas > Houston > New Orleans > Memphis > Nashville > Louisville > Cincinnati > Indianapolis > Chicago > Cleveland > Pittsburgh > Philadelphia > Atlantic City

Glad I'm not the only one with some anxiety over the idea of a cross-country trip.  I'd like to do one at some point (should the stars ever align for it... between work, family, and roadmeets, finding a large enough gap in my schedule that isn't in the middle of winter is hard), but the longest I've ever done was seven days (Florida and back) broken up by my cousin's wedding in the middle.  Between driving that many days in a row, the mileage on the car, and chaining that many hotel stays, cross-country trips are certainly a class in and of themselves.  Perhaps a specific thread on general tips for them could be useful.
