One year ago – May 29th, 2013 – I went on a half-cross-country roadtrip with my friends Dan and Dan. I did a series of vlogs over the eight days, and I also took a lot of pictures. I never posted them. Here they are:
You may remember that I had planned to do an 18-day cross-country road trip this summer. Well, for a few reasons, the trip had to be shortened to 8 days. I will still be visiting six ballparks with my friend Dan, and we’ll be staying with several friends along the way. We may not be seeing as many sights as we previously thought, but I couldn’t be more excited for the trip.
Here is the itinerary:
Wed., 5/29: Philadelphia, 7:00 game at Citizens Bank Park
Thurs., 5/30: Cleveland, 7:00 game at Progressive Field
Fri., 5/31: Chicago, 2:00 game at Wrigley Field
Sat., 6/1: Minneapolis
Sun., 6/2: Minneapolis, 2:00 game at Target Field
Mon., 6/3: Milwaukee, 7:00 game at Miller Park
Tues., 6/4: Detroit, 7:00 game at Comerica Park
Wed., 6/5: Home
The trip home from Detroit is a pretty long one (10 hours), so we may stop on the way depending on how we feel.
We have some other things planned throughout the course of the trip, like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Millenium Art Festival. We might even visit a brewery or two. There will be some surprises along the way.
I will also be filming a daily video blog, which means that the thousands* of you out there will be able to stalk us throughout the trip. I’ll edit the daily vlog on the road and will post it on here and my YouTube account.
*By thousands, of course, I mean 4.
See you on the road.
I have been making some preliminary plans for an 18-day, cross-country road trip this summer.
As of now, the trip would start on May 29th and end on June 15th. Along the way, we’d hit 8 ballparks and 4 national parks:
May 29: Philadelphia
May 30: Pittsburgh
May 31: Cleveland
June 1: Chicago
June 2: Minneapolis
June 3: Mt. Rushmore
June 4: Yellowstone
June 5: Yellowstone
June 6: Salt Lake City
June 7: Yosemite
June 8: Yosemite
June 9: Grand Canyon
June 10: Albequerque
June 11: Denver
June 12: Kansas City
June 13: St. Louis
June 14: Cincinnatti
June 15: Home
All in all, it’s about 7,000 miles of driving. These dates are far from finalized, but this seems like the best time to hit as many parks as possible.
I am also planning a secret project to go along with the road trip. More on that later.
