Naw ... I changed my mind. Chicago to LA, Route 66. On foot.

Leica M (probably M2): 21, 35, 50, 90, ah, why not the Hektor (or invest 
in a Tele-Elmar).

Rolleiflex or Rolleicord (probably 'cord because the weight, but 
possibly the Rolleiflex 3.5E because of the Xenotar).

Film ... naw, just a little film. I'll bum off of LUGers on my way. 
Let's see, Chicago (I'll buy my own), Springfield, St. Louis (Schiller's 
Camera Store ... any contacts there?), might want some color going down 
through the Ozarks (man, that's a long haul across Missouri, even at 80 
mph, by foot it will probably take ...). This stretch should be in the 
autumn, Tulsa, Oklahoma City.

I'd do it at a drop of a hat if the opportunity arose.

That's my walk.
