Wyoming is beautiful and sparsely populated. I'd be tempted to just stay there myself.

If you subtract even the population of Reno/Sparks from it then you have 3 ranchers and a goat.

So here is the plan.

-Day 1 is 14 hrs. We go from Reno to Cheyenne. We switch drivers in SLC.
-Day 2 is 14hrs. Cheyenne to the Quad Cities (Davenport, Moline, etc). We switch drivers in Omaha.
-Day 3 Davenport to Cleveland with a maybe stop in Chicago.
-Day 4 is Cleveland and my Aunt.
-Day 5 Cleveland to Philly via Pittsburgh.
-Day 6 is the last leg to Boston. We're going through The Bronx, Hartford, and Providence on the way.

Enjoying our one day off while staying with my Aunt in a suburb of Cleveland called South Russell. Very much needed really. I found that out when my calf spasmed badly in the middle of the night from all the driving and has left me limping all day. We've driven a little over 2300 miles in 3 days.

One pic is of my wife and my aunt in Chagrin Falls at said falls.
One pic is of me on Day 3 after we had been driving way too much.
One pic is of Harrahs Casino in Joliet, IL because, apparently, we can drive 1885 miles from Reno and still we find casinos. We can't escape them. We are in them and they are in us. We are cursed.

We have arrived!

We found a place in Wakefield which is just inside the inner ring near I-95 & US-1. My wife got the job at Logan Airport as an Executive Sous Chef however m job prospect fell through.

One pic is of me at Pavillion Beach in Glouchester, MA, and the other is of MIT from across the Charles River.

Welcome to my world.

Thank you. It's a weird world. Also all the drivers regularly try to kill themselves.

My county recently introduced round-abouts in the last few years.  Someone on the planning commission must love them as they're popping up everywhere.  They're a menace to a polite society.  Drivers regularly try to kill themselves (and others) on the dammed things.

So just an FYI-
We went up to Portland, ME to try the Apocalypse Now Burger yesturday. If you can, you must. It is wrong in all the best ways. Including the open faced Shepard's Pie and the Poutine, the meal fantastic. Finally a restaurant that spoke to me. Also the town did too.

And yes, I got the idea from of all places this Buzzfeed list.

Incorrect Sean... Mass drivers (AKA Massholes) try to kill other people. Only looks suicidal.

Congratulations, you made it to the East Coast!  Try not to get yourself killed unnecessarily, eh?  ;)
