Hi!
 
Let me introduce myself. I am The Roadrunner because driving or hitting the road is my passion.
 
I have had the good fortune to have traveled extensively in all 50 states, sometimes with my husband as a traveling companion, sometimes with another member of the family, and at other times with a relative or friend from Australia. However, much of my traveling has often been solo. Although it is always pleasant to have someone along, I never mind being on my own.
 
On various occasions over the years I have tried to complete many of the US highways, which were a precursor to the Interstates. I love taking back roads and seeing new places, and one might say that my travel philosophy is best expressed by Robert Frost.
 
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
 
These journals are the result of making notes as well as using a small tape recorder to tell the story of what I see along the way.
 
In conclusion I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my husband on two counts. He accepted my love of travel and for this I shall always be grateful. Addtionally, the site you are veiwing is a result of his pursavsiness to allow it to happen and his hard work and deadication to make it happen.
 
I hope you get as much pleasure reading the journals of a roadrunner as I have in producing them.
 
NOTE:
           The format will not be the same throughout since individual entries were prepared at different times.
 
           The details in all the journals are a true record but the names of people have been changed to protect their identity.
 
 
           You ask,"What are the numbers on the maps?"

The software program I use to create the maps has a mind of its own! When I enter the starting and ending points for each day, the route mapped out is rarely the one I have taken. Consequently the numbered points are only there to force the program to reflect the actual route taken and need not necessarily have anything to do with the text.
