Although this may have been my shortest road trip since I started traveling with the Terrapoint Titan mobile LIDAR system we still crossed through eight states and 1 province along about a 3160+ kilometer journey in seven days (with only 1 speeding ticket! … and no it wasn’t mine either…). Unlike most of the previous road trips, there was only one official stop along the way. It was just outside Hocking Hills State Park in Logan, Ohio but the main focus was to bring the system to our Houston office for future jobs in that region.
Besides the short hike at the Hocking Hills State Park, this trip didn’t allow any time to partake in many interesting stops (I was hoping to get to stop in Lynchburg, Tennessee to take a Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour or visit the Clinton Presidential Library while stopping in Little Rock but that didn’t work out) so this time I have little things to mention besides the numerous typical truck stops for gas and coffee refills. It was mostly interstate driving with a short country side detour through Ohio and Kentucky (from Logan OH to Lexington KY).
Maybe on the next trip will be a little more exciting …
