About 4,000 miles of road
Whew, what a trip! I do not know where this bridge was, lol. The beginning of our trip took us south through Chicago, into Indiana, East through Indianapolis, into West Virginia and Virginia and North Carolina - where Dennis had to visit a plant - down through South Carolina (barely sliding through before that huge snowstorm!) and into Georgia (Savannah), then finally Florida, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, through Orlando, to the Everglades, down to Key West, back up along the Gulf Coast to Homosassa Springs, then back home through Atlanta Georgia, Chattanooga Tennessee, through Kentucky and back up through the longest part of Illinois. Boy, I got tired just typing that.
It was a very long trip, with many miles of various terrains flying past the window, but we managed to get out a few times and check things out. I'm feeling a wee bit overwhelmed with nearly 3000 photos to go through! I have gotten the car unloaded, things put away, laundry completed, oh! And the nice surprise when we got home to temperatures in the 20s was that the furnace in our place had crapped out while we were gone and the temp in the house was 43 degrees! Brrrr! We spent the evening trying to figure it out, finally gave up and called the repair man and yesterday morning the heat was back on and I now feel like I can tackle the photos.
However, I might suggest that you do not choose to switch from a PC to a Mac right before a huge trip - the Mac stayed home for the trip, safe at home, and here I sit trying to get my mind out of PC mode and into the simplicity of Mac mode and finding a groove for keeping my photos organized where I can actually find them and know which ones I've shared - - - and yeah, I'm just a wee bit overwhelmed. But I'm happy to report that I'm pretty excited about some of the photos! I can't wait to wade through them and relive the moments of their taking and share like crazy!
So yeah, I'm not sure which state this bridge was in, but I think it was in the first day or two of the trip, snapped through the windshield while going 70 mph with the crappy little point and shoot, and I can't decide which way I like best. I hope it transfers to you the feeling of adventure I felt. :0)
