1,293 days later. The final tally.

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

And I’m on my way home. One thousand, two hundred and ninety three days later (thanks to the Date Duration Calculator for that one) and it’s time to take a one-way ticket back again. Whilst reading through all my blog entries the other day it was fascinating (if not, slightly excrutiating) to discover my posts […]

The Second Amendment

Friday, October 30th, 2009

With just over two weeks until I leave the land of the free, two of my friends here Chet & Andy decided that they needed to take me for a proper American experience – by shooting a gun. So off we trotted to the local firing range to ‘play’ with some 9mm’s. What really got […]

Coming soon … probably

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

To document, or not to document – that is the question. I’m 30,000+ words into my book (and I’ve been reliably informed that 150,000 is your ‘standard’ book size, so I’m about er …. 20% done on that front) but I’ve also been going back through ALL the video footage that I shot over ten […]

20. And Home

Friday, September 25th, 2009

And I’m back in Charleston. So it’s taken me three weeks to recover, catch up on my sleep and get some sort of resemblance of a ‘normal’ daily life back. Which means it’s now time for a post-trip ‘debrief’ interview … In the meantime, you’ll find me down the library most days, writing it all […]

19. A haircut? I’ll have a No.66 please

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I felt like my hair was getting long and that it was time to get it chopped. And when you’re in Arizona on the Route 66 trail, there’s only one place that you can go … Unfortunately Angel Delgadillo was out when we went by the Route 66 Gift Shop in Seligman, Arizona … but […]

Mojave Madness (N35 17.073 W115 41.042)

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Do you remember the good old days of the internet, when the most impressive thing you could see was some flashing text, or maybe an animated GIF? It was over ten years ago back in 1997, when I had a Compuserve account, and my ISP – Frontier Technologies– recommended that you download Netscape 4.5 to […]

18. Castaway

Friday, August 21st, 2009

We’re getting near the end of the journey and it’s time to have a little fun. Well, not that I’ve NOT been having fun already, but in Texas at the weekend we went to the ‘free’ 72oz steak restaurant in Amarillo, before my new companion for the last two weeks – Paul – helps me […]

With intent

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Back in December of 2007 I took a trip out to California from Charleston and went to Los Angeles and drove up the coast to San Francisco. At the time, I was very excited because it meant that I got to tick CA off of my ‘States I’ve visited’ list which I think at the […]

17. Run 2 Holborn

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Amongst all the regular sight-seeing and trips to National Parks, you’d be forgiven for thinking that I’ve not been stopping at all the ‘same name’ tube places, well … don’t panic, I have Some of them are just … not that interesting though! e.g. I’ve got a whole 20 minutes of video of me standing […]

16. Watch out, Beagle’s about

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

As the trip continues, and I get more tired, I confess that I’m finding it harder and harder to make the effort to produce video whilst on the road, and thus are a few days behind. So this is from last week, when Nik was still with me. The day started in Montana, but we […]

15. RushYellowstone

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

More video fun. We’re still catching up with last week when we went through Mount Rushmore and I pulled my trick (for the second time that day) of flirting with a Park Ranger just so that she’d talk to me on camera. Then it was along to – and up and over – the Beartooth […]

14. The Badlands of Wall Drug

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Could this be the most scenic part of country? So far – yes. Into South Dakota we go and the Badlands. Oh, and Wall Drug “Wall what?” I hear you ask! Exactly, which is why there’s this nice video for you … • National Parks guide to the Badlands • Wall Drug official site, oh […]
