I'm planning a road trip this summer across the USA in July-August and am looking for a companion. All of my friends are married and/or have kids so they can't accompany me.
The trip starts on the East Coast--I live in NJ, unfortunately. For the most part, I plan on avoiding major interstate highways whenever possible, heading down the Mississippi along Highway 61 to New Orleans, then west across TX through the desert to the Grand Canyon. I have a friend in Moab, Utah, where there is great mountain biking and incredible natural beauty, so I hope to go there. Then west again to California and up the coastline to Portland and Seattle. Then back east.
About me, I'm a teacher, turned 40 in March, and have a 14 year old daughter. I'm divorced, so part of the trip involves delivering my daughter to my ex wife down in Memphis, TN. After that, the trip sheds its initial PG-13 rating. :) I'm a bit paradoxical in that I love running, biking, and hiking, and hope to do some of that along the way, but am also somewhat cerebral and enjoy a drink or two.
I also plan on buying a National Parks pass ($80 for admission to all national parks) and have a tent, so the trip will also involve camping.
If you are at all interested, drop me a line.
