Here's my video of part of the trip https://youtu.be/6F-d5vCn8bY

I believe it's about 10 minutes and hopefully not too boring!

I was!

I'm stuck in bed today so it was a great chance to play the whole video and get the flavour of being on the trip, without the bills!

My biggest fuel bill whilst in the USA came to a heady $45 for a full tank!

I know there has been a couple of videos, but I would like to add one more.

This is my very first video using iMovie.

Promise it isn't too long but a great soundtrack.

Liked the video Martin. First time I've seen that.

Thought I'd post a copy to my own video, taken by my brother through the sunroof with me driving through the twisties from Blue Ridge parkway to Black Mountain. No other cars in this as I was leading.
PS. No power steering - but now have a good pair of shoulders!
