    Coonskin's Crazy Cross Country Road Trip

    (I'm not sure where to post this, I assumed this was the most appropriate place. If Mxy or Mom thinks it needs to be moved, feel free to move it.)

    Hey guys, as some of you may know but most likely don't, I am graduating from university in May, and starting early June I am going to begin driving across the US, staying a night in each of every 48 contiguous states.

    You can see the full details at the blog here: http://48in50.tumblr.com/

    The main reason I'm posting this, besides to let yall know what's going on, is that a trip like this is going to cost me a few thousand dollars in gasoline along, so I'm looking to crash on couches along the way as much as possible. This: http://48in50.tumblr.com/itinerary is the list of where I will be staying each night, so if you live in that city or reasonably close and have a spot on your couch or even floor really, please email me at coonskin05 (at) gmail (dot) com. The only thing I can offer in exchange is regaling you with tales of the road, my eternal love & appreciation, and the bragging rights of having met me (I'm kind of a big deal). I don't want anyone to feel obligated to put me up, but again I would greatly appreciate it.

    I think that's it. Hope to see some of you soon.

    Ha ha ha. That I20 corridor is fucking boring. See you then.

    I wanted to do that when I graduated high school but never got around to it. Manage a fair bit of traveling though.

    I hope this all works out for you. Make sure you hit High Street in Columbus. It's Route 23.
    This makes me so much better than Gyrael.

    Ah, you're going to Pittsburgh. If you were stopping by Philly I would have been able to give you a place to crash no problem.

    Any particular reason you're staying in Manning when you come to SC? Columbia is about an hour and a half NW out of your way, but I can put you up if you like.

    Oh also, from Columbus to Ann Arbor will take you right through Toledo, and actually within about 5-10 minutes from my house. I'm always up for meeting Dtoiders if'n you want to grab a beer or a bite to eat.

    Dang, you would pass through OKC pretty much the day I get back from Germany. If you for some reason find yourself at the airport around 10pm look me up.

    No love for Southern Louisiana so I can't help you out. That's alright, you have Baltimore on the list so that's fun.

    There was this website I heard about where people can sign up to crash on other peoples couches while they travel....I can't remember the name of it...it was on Oprah and shit.

    I'd give you a spot to crash if you were coming near me. Either way sounds fun and good luck.

    Hey Jesus HC, I don't have anything tying me down to Manning, so I might take you up on that. I'll holler at you soon.

    And Bloo, I'm staying with King in Portland, and I've been talking to Chrichton about doing something. You best be there.

    And and I can't wait to finally meet Sam. Shit's gonna be sexy yo.

    I cant get the map to work. Keep getting "AccessDenideRequest - (random letter and crap)"

    Your probably going straight east from Shreveport to Jackson though huh? I live hour south normally in Hattiesburg for college, but since it would be summer I would be 30 minutes S.E. from there at my parents. I couldn't give you place to stay but would defiantly buy you a tank of gas. Im going to be in Jackson on the 10th for a job though. So either way, Im so close to where you are going to be but yet so far from being able to help you.
