It has been awhile since I have done a big trip, so the universe has provided. Scott Foreman and Scott Sherman needed a sub for their ill massage therapist in this year's Race Across America. With less than 2 weeks before the event I got the call from Scott Foreman, little compensation, no sleep for a week, see the country at 20 mph, SIGN ME UP!
Russ Folger, Craig Streit, and the Scotts are doing this event to raise funds and bring awareness to ALS. Check out the team's website http://raamfps.org/
I start Thursday with a casual drive down to Albuquerque. Fly to San Diego. Prep with the team Friday. We move out Saturday at noon. Going through the deserts of California and Arizona should be spectacular at night. Sometime Tuesday we should be in Durango, cross the midwest, and finally in Annapolis Friday. Then sleep. Easy.
I will be posting updates on our adventures as we cross the US.
