ON THE ROAD EAST by HUGH STEWART

In August we went on a family road trip across the US.

We started in Los Angeles, backing out of the Cal Mar motel in Santa Monica for what was meant to be a drive to Palm Springs and back.

Our original plan was to then fly from LA across the country to New Orleans, then drive up to NY. But in the 120 degree heat, the thought of driving back to LA and dealing with flights went out the window.

We swapped our mid sized rental for a blacked out Chevy Suburban, with three rows of seats and a boot the size of a dumpster.
We sat on 90 Mph across the country. 
From Melvyn’s Hotel in Palm Springs to Phoenix, to Marfa, down to the Mexican border, to Austin and then down to Galveston. Oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowing. Then it was on to Port Bolivar and up into New Orleans.
From there we travelled along the Mississippi to Clarksdale, to Memphis and Elvis and Martin Luther King and up to Nashville. Back down to Savannah for a swim in the Atlantic, then up through South and North Carolina to Washington, and finally on to NYC.
