Hi! This is CNN.com producer Cody McCloy. Web developer Brian Hardy and I are jetting off to Cali today to kickoff our road trip with renewable biodiesel fuel from the San Francisco Bay to Atlanta. Read Cody's kickoff article
Along the way we’ll cover things a road-tripper might find interesting, such as how to save money on the road and how cleaner-burning alternative fuels can reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
Of course we’ll also hit some major destinations and roadside attractions as we rattle and hum down the highway in our classic 1978 International Harvester Scout.
Watch our live video broadcast this Monday at 9:40 a.m. ET on CNN.com Live!
And of course, you can follow along right here on the CNN.com SciTech blog.
If there’s something you think we should stop and see along the way – please hit us up via iReport.com and send us photos and videos of places you want us to visit.
And finally you can vote on our destinations at CNN.com’s special report American Road Trips.
See ya on the road!
