My Scotty Adventure

I departed from Atlanta on January 11, 2017 and trekked across the United States for almost four months. On May 2, I decided to bring My Scotty Adventure to a close. On May 6, I returned home.

The following map shows my path.

BTW… Google Maps only allows 10 stops per trip. This is why you see the letters repeated.
(A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-A-B… you get it?)

Also… the route shown may not be the actual route I took. I allowed Google work their magic for the map.
