    Default Cross Country Trip... (blog)

    Just thought I'd let everyone here know that I'm blogging about my trip from Syracuse, NY to Southern California both here and on blogspot...I just got back into Syracuse after 8 days and 1,035 miles worth of traveling around the North East (which I also put some thoughts down about as I went). Anyways, if anyone wants to follow along I'll be postin up as I go from East to West starting on Monday!

    Enjoy the trip, the Port of Long Beach is nearly 80 degrees today, no clouds and a slight breeze from the ocean.

    It was nice out today too...Long Beach is going to be the final stop though, and I'm sure it'll be prettier than Ohio haha.
