Travels with Jane, a participatory adventure

The travel editor at the Miami Herald goes on a low-budget road trip, blogs it all, and has her next move determined by … readers’ votes! (That’s got to count as interactive!)

Jane Wooldridge started out on Aug. 20, getting as far as Florida Caverns State Park, in the panhandle of our state (many people don’t realize it, but you must drive a full day to get out of Florida if you start in Miami). Today she posted from Kansas City, Missouri.

It’s a cute idea, and she’s getting some comments, although not a lot. There’s no Site Meter link on her blog, so there’s no telling how many people are following her daily. You can still vote on her next route change (should she head west or north?) — we’ll find out which choice won when she makes her next post to the blog.

Don’t miss the Flash map of Jane’s journey, conveniently linked on the upper right corner of her blog. Her plan is to end up in Seattle, with more interesting detours along the way.

Update (Sept. 4): Jane went into South Dakota and drove across the Badlands. Cool. I’ve always wanted to go there.
