Ok folks, by the time you read this, I’ll be heading out from Dallas on my way to Indianapolis via St. Louis. As you may recall, I was invited by the folks over at the Brickyard to attend the Indy 500 with full press credentials, so I’m heading up to document the entire experience and share it with all of you!
My goal is to make it to St. Louis tonight in time to catch the Gateway Arch before dusk. I’d like to try and find the perfect spot to set up and get some HDR photos of this magnificent structure. Afterwards, I’ll stay at Harrah’s Casino for the evening (where I normally stay when I’m in town). Now, on the way home from Indy I’ll take the southern route through Memphis and Little Rock, then on into Dallas.
Since I’ll be driving for days, and since I’m always up for adventure, if anyone has any “must see” spots that I should see, PLEASE let me know! I’ll be checking comments here on the blog periodically, and I’ll be looking out for Tweets and Facebook comments you send my way. I was going to try and spend some time on RoadsideAmerica.com looking for things along the route, but just never got around to it. Darn!
Here is the route I’ll be taking in a Google Map:
Of course, as I mentioned when I announced that Mishaal had won my iPad, I’m also going to pick up SOMETHING at the Indy 500 to give away to at least one person (maybe more) who helps keep me amused this week by engaging with me as I travel. So comments on the Indy 500 blog posts, or tweets or Facebook comments all count. Help me find fun things, or just amuse me so I don’t get bored and you may win! :-)
