1996 Driving Trips

Driving Across the Continent

In the fall of 1996, I went on a driving trip across the U.S. and Canada with Mikiya Tani, a colleague from NEC and good friend of mine, who was visiting Georgia Tech at that time. He drove by himself from Atlanta to San Jose in about two days (!) and we left San Jose together on September 27. By October 10, we covered Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Seattle, Vancouver, Banff, Winnipeg, Totonto, Niagara Falls, Washington, D.C., Charleston, and back to his home in Atlanta. I came backe from Atlanta back to San Jose by air. The part I drove with him was more than 11,000 miles and we did it in 14 days. I took 250 film pictures, 180 digital pictures and 6 hours of video. (Yes, it was 1996 and I was already taking a lot of digital photos.)

    In November 1996, I attended the ACM CSCW / Multimedia '96 Conference in Boston. Mikiya Tani drove his car from Atlanta. During the weekend of November 23 after the conference, we drove across New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick and visited Quebec City and Montreal. We drove back through Vermont and he dropped me at the Boston Airport early Monday morning (November 25). Then I flew back to San Jose.
