T - 22 hours

Oakland, United States

Tomorrow I leave on my much anticipated, long in the works cross country road trip. Initially envisioned as a solo trip, I have two friends accompanying me as far as Tucson, and possibly to Albuquerque.

We leave tomorrow around noon, considering we can find a bike rack and I can pick up packages from UPS on the weekend. Our first stop is about 8 hours away, at Joshua Tree National Park. Our plan is to camp then head out in the morning for Tuscon.

We're driving east on 580 until we hit CA-99, which will take us south without having to pass through LA. My hope is to pass through some beautiful, Golden, hilly summer California countryside before we hit desert and the intense heat I have been missing since I moved to the Bay Area 2 years ago.

Wish us luck :)
