Honda 49cc Motor Scooter Ride US Coast-to-Coast in 2004
The Road to Somewhere?
Synopsis: During the summer of 2004, I rode a little 2003 Honda Metropolitan 49cc motor scooter on a 9,400 mile transnational, cross-country journey from Baltimore, Maryland to Los Angeles, California.
Purpose: A summer challenge. Visit lots of US national parks. Move to Hollywood. Travel at a fine bicycle pace. Write a chapter of my autophotobiography. See the American back country - the details below the clouds. Test the bike for RTW practicality.
Map of the Trip.
During the spring of 2004, I made the decision to follow my Hollywood dream -- to work amongst the power moguls and movie stars of a global film studio! To accomplish this, I felt that I would first need to relocate from Baltimore, MD to Los Angeles, CA. While a routine, six-hour flight was a quick, though certainly boring, alternative, I decided a grand, free adventure was the order of the summer. I mean, why trip, when one can journey, right?
