Rocket Trike and the Green Hornet

Oct 27, 2010

Started the day in St. Louis by getting lost on the way to the Fox News studio (not recommended on a rocket trike in early morning traffic), but with a little navigational help from Dave at the studio, finally made my way there (thanks, Dave).

The site is live and I now have over 1,100 miles under my belt (almost half way to DC).
