I'm taking a long leisurely road trip from the SF Bay area to the East Coast (Boston/NY, and eventually Austin, TX) and would like some good company whenever possible.
The plan is to leave on June 3/4 from the bay area, go along the Pacific Coast (with a detour through Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival) to Seattle, visit the Olympic and Mt. Rainier National Park , and then head east to Chicago via either Rt.2 (through Glacier National Park etc.) or Rt. 80 (Yellowstone, Zion, etc.) possibly through Twin Cities. From Chicago it's straight to Boston with a short stay en route with friends in Ithaca NY. My friends in Boston would accompany me to hiking in Maine (Mt. Katahdin). After a week or two there I'll hit the road again, travelling along the spine of the Appalachia (or hugging the east coast) to eventually Austin, Texas.
I have a good car, camping gear and a great reserve of good humour and conversation to last the trip. Looking for good-natured, intelligent, witty, flexible and adventurous companions for part or whole of the trip. Poetic spirits would be heartily welcomed; literary/philisophical/artistic/scientific interests greatly appreciated. I can speak some German, French, Spanish and Italian, so Europeans with the desire to improve my language skills are welcome to join and try! Should be self-sufficient in the matter of gear and money; I plan to stay at a combination of youth hostels/camp sites/friends. I am young-spirited male who wants to have some fun and adventure before going back to school to finish his math PhD.
Give me shout if you're heading that way!
