I've been inspired by many Trip Reports on here and I'm thinking of giving it a go. However, I don't think I can be as detailed and I would be doing a lot of things as I have nothing planned. I'm guessing there would be more photographs than words in this report. Please don't attack me for a poor report or if there have been any disappointments. First thing I need to do when I land in LA is to get a US sim card in order for this to be more effective. I'd appreciate suggestions as I go ... Sonya, please feel free to delete this attempted TR if you think it doesn't meet the standard or isn't exciting enough. No hard feelings. As of now, I am pretty much packed and excited. about 15 hrs to go before I take off and then 16 hrs of flying.
