On August 24, the great Trading848 Summer of 2017 experiment came to an end. Tonight I will be boarding a red-eye back to NYC to be reunited with friends, family and my fiancé!

Push for the PCA

I wrote this post while sitting at Oregon State University in Corvallis listening to lectures about a pending eclipse. At this point, I am 95% (3900 miles) in to my journey which has taken just over 3 months.  In November I decided that I would undertake a cross country trip, in March I partnered with...

This is because Monday morning when we woke up freezing, we decided that it may be a good idea to push 120+ miles into the biggest city we've seen in quite some time. There was an open ended warm showers host that... Continue Reading →

On the Road: Saratoga to Dubois
