Busy, busy… Need a road trip?

I think I’m in need of a road trip coming up. Maybe even a few excursions every next few weekends. I’ve been sooooo busy at work that I need time to do something else for a little bit. I’m thinking a weekend of driving somewhere, daddling around there, then coming back. I’ll probably take pictures, visit some museum, or just chill out for a bit, then return to work after each weekend. (:

Any suggestions on places to visit (somewhat) nearby? (Well, within a day’s drive or so…)

    Oh, the places!

    Well, I just got back from Yellowstone National Park, and it was amazing. Its too bad that its not closer though, and one day is just not enough to spend there. I’ve been going every summer for that past 4 years, and I still see new sites everytime.

    That also reminds me. I took a whole ton of pictures (about 250) and I’m thinking of setting up a photo gallery like yours. I will probably use your imgconvert script too. I’ll keep you posted!

    Place to go

    The Lost Sea. The worlds largest underground body of water.
    It’s in good old Tennessee.

    I suggest you come to Macon. See Elise, hear me play some tunes, and hang out 🙂

    Well this may not exactly be a road trip …. but something that can be done in a day or two’s time if you plan to spend a bit more 😉

    1.) Take Black Hawk Fighter Plane (should be atleast compatible of Mach3 speed) and fly to Bombay (India)
    2.) Out here, I shall have a helicopter ready for you, so u can visit some of the best scenic beauty in existence ( snapshots allowed 😉 )
    3.) Have food at my place ( complimentary /me runs )
    4.) Leave you back at helipad.
    5.) Take Black Hawk back to ur original location.

    South Carolina has some wonderful scenic drives, and I hear Charleston is really nice for the whole preserved-South sorta excursion. I hear the coast is touristy, but that usually makes for interesting photo ops, as well.

    You’re also within a day’s distance of Asheville and the Smokies. In the coming months, the Blue Ridge Parkway should be in prime color.

    hmm, road trip…

    well, DC’s not that far away and lots to see there.
    Baltimore is only an hour or so past that…

    Atlanta is about 5-6 hours, but I suspect
    you’ve had your fill of GA.

    If you havent had a chance to head up to the
    north carolina mountains, might be a good chance…
    Hit the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, go
    pan for gems, all the touristy bits ;->

    Theres more civil war battlegrounds in Virginia
    than you can shake a stick at.

    Charleston is pretty close. Aside from that, dont
    know much else to see there (you could take
    a place of where I was born!)

    Tennessee is close, but the drive kind of sucks.
