I made a short summary here.
He made a few short stops on his way to Tallahassee :
When the soldier picked him up the first night he made it to Vail and spent the rest of the night at the Holiday Inn. (December 30/31)
Vail => Denver by Trailway bus. He took a flight to Chicago and then a train to Ann Harbor.
He stayed in Ann Arbor 4 days (that’s where he watched the Rose Bowl in a bar, shaved and got his hair cut). (January 01/04)
He stole a car and went to Atlanta where he saw the movie The Sting at the Atlanta Omni Center. He finally took the bus to Tallahassee right after the movie. (January 6)
