Austin2Bostin Part 1: Introduction
A tour of space age sites in a space age car. Our first one way road trip started with a change in corporate policy that required me to be on holiday between Christmas and new years. If I was going to be forced to take nearly two weeks off I needed to go on an adventure. The initial plan was to ride motorcycles south from Boston until it got warm then explore where ever we ended up. I was in Jacksonville, FL in early December and it wasn't warm. I needed a new plan. Thought about road tripping somewhere in a car, but I didn't have a specific destination I wanted to see. So then we hatched this plan. We wanted to take a road trip, but didn't have anywhere to go, so the destination was home. Which means we needed to start somewhere else, and get there without driving. We bought one way plane tickets to Austin, TX, reserved a rental car for one day, and brought a small envelope of cash. Once we hit the ground we had 24 hours to acquire a car and then 2 weeks to get back to Boston when we had to be back at work.
