The plan is to leave New York on September 13, end the trip in San Diego (interviewing Deepak Chopra) about 5 weeks later, ship the bike and fly back home. So far confirmed interviews are in Austin, Eugene OR, San Francisco, LA, and San Diego. Possibly there will be additional interviews in Ohio and Chicago, or alternatively North Carolina. I wanted to avoid going on the ultimate freedom trip only to discover that I am running a hectic daily job schedule, so the number of interviews is limited intentionally.
Other than some mandatory stuff like parts of route 66 and the Grand Canyon, I’d like to go on nice twisty back roads, and go through small towns as much as possible. Any thoughts about nice scenic routes, and about places where folks might know one or two things about inner peace?
