The Road Trip: Across the Country

On Saturday, November 7th, I will begin a 16 day solo drive across the United States and back. I'll be writing and posting (www.stevecelano.com/blog) everyday, I hope. Some days will be pictures, some days will be text, some days might even have video if I'm really into it. 

I have 16 days to go across the country and back. The goal is to go from Baltimore Maryland to Big Sur California to touch some of that sweet sweet Pacific Ocean water. It's sure to be the adventure of the lifetime or a very long and boring car ride.

Along the way I'm hoping to stop at America's finest sights:

  • Badlands National Park
  • Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Craters of the Moon
  • Big Sur
  • Death Valley
  • The Grand Canyon

The Ideal Route

Honestly, I don't think I'll be able to hit all these locations - especially on my own - but it's nice to have goals. Thanks for coming along for the ride. 

 

Photo Essay: Atlantic City at Night

"And meet me tonight, in Atlantic City" - Bruce

I never know what to make of Atlantic City. When I was a kid, I used to go down every Summer with my grandparents to stay at their charmingly salty rundown shore house. It was fantastic. Not like the three story, split level, side splitting houses people build now. No, this was a much more easy going - walk in with sand on your feet type of place. We went there to fish, sit, and eat; not exclusively in that order. 

The casinos were like billboards to me than actual places. You look at them while you were at a stop light, but never felt the need to go in.

I haven't spent much time there since I moved away from home, so I took a little trip back and shot some photos.
