WHRO Staff Pick
Years ago—many, because this type of trip is something you dare to venture into when you are younger, I had the opportunity to drive across the country with a friend- Norfolk to San Diego. And, while I had traveled to many places within the US, nothing prepared me for the vastness and the diversity of the places I experienced. It was a magical trip that left an indelible memory within me. I’ve thought back to that trip while watching “Horatio’s Drive” which chronicles the first cross country road trip in 1903 in a “horseless carriage.” Dr. Horatio Nelson didn’t get to see the sights I did (like Graceland and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame) but it was still quite an experience!
