Day 17 marks the end of my 'Route 66' journey.

I think this day was a lot more fun in person than it will show in the words or pictures. It has all too many lights for most of you & I'd recommend you simply skim over it.

My attempts at being short-winded have failed yet again. Maybe one of these years I'll get better at it.

Our trip is nearing its end, but there's still a pair of good days left.

This is day 16.

I'm always sad to leave Wyoming, but I immediately checked off one of my top 10 locations afterward, so how can I complain?

Day 15. Check it.

Day 14 was a day of driving, so it's not very captivating.

Day 15 is actually one of the better ones on the trip, so bare with me & it'll get better.

We tried to jam about as much as possible into our single Los Angeles tourist day, but the city is so large that it probably doesn't seem like much.

Quote of the Week time?

"I looked at all 14 of those cameras and there wasn't one car. Oh wait! They've refreshed, now there's one car in It's total gridlock out there!"

-Dopeness commenting on my province's highway webcams...which I thought was funny because it now looks normal to me, to look at all of those cameras and not expect any cars...

Continuing west, we leave Arizona and come close to the end of Route 66 by driving through my first desert (the Mojave).

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

I was amused today as I walked down the street and smirked at the couples holding hands and acting like they were in e-Harmony commercials...then I started dying laughing as two bro-dudes passed me carrying a two-four of Budweisers on a Monday night. Too good.

Anyway, here's day 6.

It's a busy couple weeks on my end, not sure when day 7 will come.

A little delay before this 4th day, eh?

Well it's the first impressive day, so I hope it's worth the wait.

Day 5 won't take 9 days.

Update: Day 5 only took 7 days!!!

The longest journey of my 2010 would easily be my trip from the D to Los Angeles, following Route 66 from Chicago to L.A.

Obviously I took thousands of pictures, but I'm going to try and be brief with the updates, focusing on the important & interesting things...since I imagine there's not many people who want to read 17 long-winded, wordy day recaps.

With that in mind, here is the introduction & day 1.

Sunday: Here's the equally compelling day 2. I insist that these get better.

...and day 3 - which is slightly better than day 1 or 2!

I've covered a portion of this peninsula before, but with exploring new communities comes interesting new finds.

Happy New Year's everyone!! Hopefully your 2011 brings you everything that your heart desires.

Today comes an update from last June. I had a full day to drive from Halifax to New Brunswick, meaning I had time to spare.

Therefore I explored a region which I had never heard much about: Central Nova Scotia. Following the southern coast along the Bay of Fundy, the day was filled with many lights and much fog.

It's not the most captivating update, but check it out if you so desire.
