I've done road trips since I was a little boy. My mom spent a few years in the Long Beach during the war and really liked it. So growing up, every few years she and I would bundle into her big ole Chevrolet sedan and drive west. A couple of times I was allowed to bring a friend (great fun, memories we still share). Once we brought one of her friends, a busybody neighbor and her spoiled daughter. This one was not a success. But usually it was just me and my mom. Staying in mid-range motels, a couple of days to get across the plains, then a few days in Colorado, then on to California.
I got a serious case of the cross-country travel bug.
In the late 90's, as computer technology became more personal - the web, word processors, digital cameras - I started thinking about how I could convey travel experiences.
