THREE RIVERS, N.M.--I just hit exactly 2,000.0 miles since leaving on Road Trip 2007, my journey around the Southwest.
And given that there happened to be a little piece of shoulder to pull off on here in the middle of nowhere--truly a remote road--and a good enough signal via my EV-DO card, it seemed worth blogging.
So, if you care--and I'm sure at least 11 of you do, that's what I'm doing: Commemorating that since I left the Bay Area a week ago Monday, I've driven exactly 2,000 miles.
Last year, on Road Trip 2006, I hit 2,000 miles at an vista point overlooking Grand Coulee Dam. No such luck this time, but still, with mountains on both sides of the road, and a glorious sunset lighting up some wonderful clouds, it's quite the view anyway.
I wonder where I'll be at 3,000 miles?
