Once in a lifetime you get an opportunity to do something you have never done before. Back in 2009, my friend asked me if I could help him move from NJ to Texas. We would be driving a rental truck more than half way across the country.
Driving a 22ft truck was one of the firsts for me as the largest vehicle I had driven before was a 1999 Toyota Camry. The other first for me was driving cross country.
This was to be an unconventional trip as my friend wanted to do it in as little time as possible. With that in mind, it didn’t leave any time for sightseeing. This trip was seen 99.9% through the windshield on the big 22 footer.
There will be some missing parts as we took turns driving and sleeping so some missed opportunities went by at 70mph.
As my friend wanted to avoid I10, we went with some out of the way routes which did represent some interesting views.
