About the Trip

In 2009 I plan to set out on a 3-12 month adventure, exploring as much of the United States as I possibly can as I roam from place to place. There will be no plotted course and no schedule. There will be no itinerary or list of stops. Only the open road and the endless possibilities that come with the freedom of such unconventional means of travel. I'll hike to towns and cities I've never seen before and hitchhike across states I've never visited. I'll sleep in clumps of trees and beneath overpasses to save money. I'll shower in truck stops and bathe in streams. I'll be a vagrant, a wanderer, a vagabond. But as a poor guy, unrestrained by career and schedule, I'll travel more in a matter of months than many wealthy people will in years.
