This is my write up of my cross country trip that I did in July/Aug 2010. I will be writing this over the next weeks when I can, its my first diary so be patient please. Any feedback appreciated. So..... I have always wanted to do a cross country trip in the USA, it just seems built for it, and you can do it alone because at least I can speak the language, well at least I understand them. In May had my bonus burning a hole and the Aussie dollar was at 80c I thought why the hell not. I looked around the net and found a rental that would do a rentals one way, it was pick up in Los Angeles and drop off in Washington DC 22 days with the bike. Here is me with my home for the next three weeks just before I set off from LA. Time to set off.
