My current itinerary includes 20 states (in order of first visitation): New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California. I’m giving myself six months, but given that I have a specific weather-dependent window of time, and that I tend to dawdle and like to get sidetracked, I reserve the right to make it only partway. In fact, I’d be amazed if I made it cross-country this one time out.

This is an approximate idea of the route (New York City to Los Angeles):
