My overall plan was to fly to Orlando, rent a car, and start driving north. I would fly home (well, to Seattle) from Albany, New York at the end of July. I had some difficulty convincing rental car agents that six weeks was not an insanely pessimistic over-statement of my needs; it was, rather, the point of the exercise. It became simpler to rent for two shorter periods and not have a car at all during my week in central Baltimore.
Baltimore, for the annual gay square dance convention, was the centerpiece of the trip. I would see tons of good friends there and have a roommate for a while. I was also booked into a place in the Adirondack Mountains for a weekend, and had a few relatives expecting me here and there, dates deliberately vague.
This is the photo album of that trip.
