I'm on the East Coast Road Trip this week, and since I traveled through Massachusetts, I had to take the pilgrimage to one of the writers who set my wanderlust in motion: Jack Kerouac. I read his book "On the Road" in high school and have looked forward ever since to getting in a car and just going. (Good thing my day job has me doing that often!)

(photo forthcoming. Apparently I'm too much of an idiot to post the photo in here and I'm way too tired to try after the 57th time. Fuckers.)

So I keep track of roads I've driven/ridden, states and sites I've seen, and (as always) all the good places to eat along the way.

So thanks to Kerouac for inspiring my writing and my traveling!
