TITAN Cross Country Road Trip # 4
I have been fortunate enough to have a job that allows me to travel all over North America, experiencing geography first hand, and visiting places that I probably would have never gone to, if not for this job. This post is about another one of my long cross country trips.
Start Location: Ottawa, Ontario
End Location: Houston, Texas
States / Provinces Crossed:
– 8 states: New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Texas
– 1 province: Ontario
Places stayed or visited: Syracuse NY, Cleveland OH, Logan OH, Lexington KY, Louisville KY, Little Rock AK, Houston TX
Approximate Distance: 3160 km
Duration: 7 days
Although this may have been my shortest road trip since I started traveling with the Titan mobile LIDAR system, we still managed to travel 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 … ).
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 to scan a test site for a major automotive manufacturer (where they do road tests on some of their new concept cars … ) 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 …
