Washington DC is was the first stop of the Green Tortoise `Southern Dream` overland tour.

The previous night we departed uptown New York. 35 passengers, 2 drivers (but a combined 75 nipples...), one bus and 4700 miles to go cover. It`s a trip that really does deserve its own blog, but a lack of internet en route (and no blog at the time!) means i`ll try to concisely summarise it all on the `arrival to SF entry`!

My initial thoughts were a slight concern...only 3 of us ´walked the walk´ when the driver said "get the beer now if you want it, it´s the last chance for today". Needless to say, the other two were Brits and we were pretty much the only ones with beer, that tried and tested social lubricant. We had our first ´bag party´ that night and performed ´the miracle´ afterwards, much to the amusement of the truckers...
