    Funny how the mind works. Up until I read your post, the phrase "cross-country road trip" would automatically bring an image to mind of going east to west. Road trips are always west bound! I live in the middle of the country and always go west, starting with my hitch-hiking trip from OK to CA and back in '71!
    East bound, what a concept! Enjoy and be prepared to discover that most people are nicer to travelers than you would expect!

    I just got schwacked at school and if I want to get into my top choice school for college I have to go to summer school for some classes, thus no roadtrip for atleast a year. Really really bummed right now.

    I was watching the movie, "Wagon Trains East" on Hulu last weekend and they were saying the same thing. If you think his road-trip is in the wrong direction, watch this movie sometime when you want a mindless diversion from the darkroom.

    I always associated "cross country" with off-road. So a cross-country road-trip came across as somewhat strange to me.

    Sorry about your luck. the problem with grand trips like this is that STUFF always happens. There never seems to be a good time.

    To keep the dream alive, do a mini-grand road trip with whatever time you have. 1-2-3 weeks from S. California across southern Utah and back wouldn't be hard to take. It's not coast to coast but it wouldn't be punishment either. It also wasn't on your original half trip itinerary.

    Good luck! Good light!

    I am going to just postpone it to the year after I get into school. Nothing will stop me then. NOTHING. Caps were necessary.

    Taking to heart what you said though I am probably going to get a little something in, maybe go see the grand canyon or about that far.

    You are young, don't let it get you down. Don't get entangled in things that keep you from doing it.

    And get a Vanagon Westy to camp in. Or a newer (late 70s) loaf Westy. I know people who have spent years on the road in these vehicles.

    And then find, as your goal, Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster in South Freeport Maine. You'll be glad you did.
