Two Summers: America from a bus window

My bones are 50 years older than when I took my first 12.000-mile Greyhound bus trip around the USA, so this time I will be do my journey in two parts. The first will take me down from New York to Florida and then west to Louisiana and Texas. I am particularly looking forward to arriving in Houston 50 years to the day that the Americans landed on the moon. The second leg will start in California, where I got my first break in journalism on the Pasadena Star News. I will then go across the middle of America from Los Angeles to Boston.
