    Just sharing the details / experiences of my 23 day 5800 mile long road trip from Austin to California covering tons of places on the way in my blog AK's BLOG. To sum it up - it was one amazing drive and trip :)

    Awesome blog!! Do you have any tips for destination charging in Austin? I was considering staying at the W and letting the valet charge (like the Hyatt in Dallas).

    Excellent job!
    you encourage me to make similar trips... but baby steps for me for now...
    I am also a big Federer fan. He sure had a good shot this past Wimbledon.
    Thanks for your efforts!
