The Journeys Begin

Jeff Glor had the Golden Gate Bridge in the background as he outlined the 2,000 mile road trip that will ultimately take him and his hybrid Toyota Prius to Independence, Mo., where he'll meet up with Nancy Cordes.

She was in Manhattan as she charted her route, which she explained is "a bit shorter" than Jeff's. But, she added, his is more scenic. She's in a Ford Fusion.

Both have GPS devices along for the ride. Jeff kidded that he'd try to ditch his onto a semi somewhere, to throw folks off his route. He also demonstrated his in-car, on-board camera, joking that its presence would mean "Big Brother" would be watching at all times.
