    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.
