    I recently needed to move from beautiful San Diego to the DC area. I shipped my car and a pod of stuff, and rode the Rocket solo coast to coast. I rode Rte. 66 in reverse from Santa Monica to Chicago, swung by Hell, MI, just to say I've been there, and took non-toll roads the rest of the way. I'd been planning on dropping down to TN to ride the Blue Ridge Pkwy up, camping along the way, but the weather forecast that week was torrential, apocalyptic rain of 2-4" per hour all day every day. Thought I'd post a few photos...

    I'm sorry. Nobody should ever have to do that. :(:(

    However, the journey over is a great trip the way you are doing it.
