Road Trip #2: NYC to SFO

Total miles driven after two tours: 11,942

My second tour was with another group of French teenagers. We did the same trip I just did but in reverse. The second time was so much better. My passengers were nice & respectful, & the chaparone was fantastic!

Things went much smoother logistically too. It helped that I had already been to all of the locations, but using the GPS made a world of difference. They should issue each guide a GPS before they head out. It's probably the single most useful tool on tour.

This job has a steep learning curve, but I feel like I'm doing well so far. To be honest, it doesn't feel like this is a job at all - more like a paid vacation. I mean, I get paid to go on a cross country road trip, using someone else's car, gear & money. I think I came out ahead on this one.

Unfortunately, I have no photos of my own to share for trip #2 since my camera crapped out on the last tour. I'll just have to grab some of the passengers' photos from Facebook to post here.
