    Stay Tuned for UPDATES and subscribe to my thread if you are interested in following this EPIC Journey across the United States coming up this March 23-April 9th!!

    I will be prepping my 2007 R56 over the next couple months to ensure its reliability and fun so as to not have many surprises during the 9000+ miles my route will take me. The map I have linked below is only just the beginning! I will update the stops, progress and more as the dates draw closer, more sponsors get on board and local clubs get plugged into my event.

    I will have a live streaming webcam during parts of the trip for daily updates, hundreds of photos and Live Tracking sponsored by WAZE so those who will to intercept and drive along for part of the journey may do so!

    If the route is close to you... leave a comment and show your support! Lets have some fun with this trip!!

    I'm sorry but I can't share your excitement. 19 days of 10+ hours a day of driving is not what I consider an enjoyable adventure. An adventure, yes but one with no rewards.

    You know... it will be a long event with long days, but I can say every mile will be worth it! A few years ago I did a marketing campaign for Chrysler's launch of the new SRT8 Charger. This trip was a 19,430 mile roadtrip over 49 days, in search of the best roads in America. I can say it was completely unreal!! I went from Coast to Coast, across the Gulf of Mexico to Cruzin' The Coast and shared the ride with 13 General Lee Chargers as well as some of the cast from Dukes of Hazard.

    Without a doubt it was long, but the people I met along the way have changed my life and given me a new perspective that I have held onto since that trip. I no longer believe in working for "Corporate America" by trading an hour for a dollar... I work on my schedule, helping others achieve their success. This event will be like no other and I welcome the challenges! :Thumbsup:

    Here is the link to the photos from the "America Adventure" in the SRT8

    Took a look at your map. Hey! You left out Key West!
    We've got a 7K mile trip unfolding for this May and June but 300 or so miles a day with lots of sight seeing in between is more like Motoring.

    PS: Like my grandpa always said at the outset: "Don't take any wooden nickels."

    I'd just like to make a trip like this, just to see the stuff I missed over the years. I've done the coast to coast trip a few times, I think I am up to 8. Usually 10+ hours a day seat time, there was always some type of deadline to meet.
