We're getting close!
Thanks to everyone who's backed this project so far. It's going to be fantastic. I'm heading out from NYC in the Defender tomorrow towards Chicago, and and things are shaping up exactly as planned: sometime between now and tomorrow this perfect weather we've had for the past several days will turn to cold and rainy.
Depending on what time I get out of the city -- and the weather -- it'll most likely take me a couple days to get to Chicago, where the real adventure begins. For those of you who are curious, here's a plot of the original route, which I'll be following for the project:
As of right now we're only about $200 shy of this project being funded, which means that all the backers get their rewards and I can afford produce the book. There are still 9 days left, but I'll be on the Road before that so the sooner the better. Please tell all your friends! Quick!

Select your favorite of the 11 images that I'll release as limited editions and I'll send it to you.
