From Atlanta to Denver

Distance: 1,384.7 miles
Departing: Acworth, Georgia
Destination: Denver, Colorado
Transportation: BMW R1200GS (see below)

So I'll be making my way from Acworth, just North West of Atlanta, to Denver, Colorado. I'll be leaving up I-75N to Chattanooga where I'll catch I-24, to I-57 just south east of St. Louis, Mo. I'll then take I-70 across Missouri and Kansas through to Denver. I'll stop to take at least token pictures of places like the Arch along the way. I anticipate the trip out there being fairly boring and, hopefully, uneventful.

I'll be returning a different, longer, route. I'll post the return route separately but plan to hit Pikes Peak then down near Albuquerque, NM, taking I-40 and Rte 66 through Texas, Oklahoma, then up to Tulsa and over to Arkansas where I hope 16 will get me through the Ozarks. Then down to Little Rock, over to Memphis and the home stretch back home. But more on this later...

To appease various family members, I'll be posting (written and audio) updates along the route here...
