- Yellow Stone
- Steamboat Spring
- St. Louis
- And D.C.
I know people in each of these places and many of them I haven't seen in a long time. If there are other places along the way that I absolutely can't miss, please let me know in the comments and I'll try to make it there! Or if you find yourself along the way, I'd be great to see a familiar face out on the road!
This trip has been an evolving idea in the back of my mind for at least a couple years. A long time ago, when I was working at Allanti with AdamD, a guy named RJ (yes, the same RJ that wound up at MOAB for a bit) hired on and he had done the much the same trip but in the other direction. Hearing him talk about his trip and his experiences, I got the itch to do it too. At that time though, I was still in high school and had no real chunks of free-time for the foreseeable future as I was headed to college soon and would wind up being busy with all number of other things each and every summer.
Note: if you shop at MOAB (and you should), please understand that they will bend over backwards for you. It just may take some time, especially during the summer months.
Another contributing factor of the timing of my tour is my cousin's wedding in September near Boone, NC. I still haven't decided if I'll be able to finish my trip and then go, or just be arriving in Boone when the wedding happens... TBD!
I'll certainly keep you posted about the result of the MAS application. And like I said before, let me know if there are things you think I can't miss along the way!
