Great Timing


So far, so great! I am amazed at how such a spontaneous trip turned into perfect timing in each area I have been visiting. Pittsburgh was my second stop in which there so happened to be a Pittsburgh Stealers game that Sunday. The Dry Falls water fall was another stop which just got a lot of rain the week before making for a nice site of the powerful waterfall and water below. My current location is Nashville, Tennessee (known for its music) is having the 49th annual Country Music Awards in the city!

I visited Chattanooga, TN on my way to Nashville yesterday and was happy with the sites I saw. The Lookout mountain had a great view of 7 states, and the Ruby Falls was cool. The Lyft app is letting me drive again so I can earn some money before tonight. I planned on walking around the city and checking out the nightlife when the awards are over. So far the people here are really nice and have great accents.  I will be leaving at 5 am tomorrow morning for my next stop is New Orleans! I will update the “trip tracker” once I arrive tomorrow.






Road trip destinations planned

Below is the list of some of the destinations I have planned for my Uber road trip. These destinations may change depending on where the Uber driving takes me but it provides a good starting point. I created the list by printing out a map of the USA, plotted addresses of destinations I wanted to visit, and found some other destinations on my current routes using trip advisor If you have any recommendations, please feel free to comment below. Depending on the progress I am making, I will be adding new destinations. My goal is to make it back to New Jersey before Thanksgiving so this gives me almost 20 days of travel. Only 2 more days before the journey starts!

1. Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh, PA)
2. New River Gorge Preserve (Glen Jean, WV)
3. Dry Falls (Highlands, North Carolina)
4. Nashville, Tennessee
5. Vicksburg National Military Park (Vicksburg, MS)
6. New Orleans, LA
7. Austin, Texas
8. Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo, TX)
9. Colorado Springs, CO
10. Estes Park: Wildlife watching (Estes Park, CO)
11. Sedona, AZ
12. Grand Canyon, AZ
12. Las Vegas, Nevada
14. San Diego, CA

First road trip set for Halloween October 31, 2015

presents “The Uber Road Trip” with Ed


I will be starting the official Uber Road Trip on October 31, 2015 (Halloween). The trip will start in New Jersey and end in California. I will have a $500.00 fund which will be used to get the trip started. Once I hit the road I will have to earn enough Uber fares to pay for my gas, food, and housing. The Uber earnings are paid on Wednesdays so I will have to time my trips and spending accordingly to sustain a positive bank balance.

Here are a few rules I had in mind:

  1. I can only Airbnb my housing.
  2. I can not eat/drink anything from a corporate chain (Dunkin Donuts etc.)
