This upcoming Saturday, my brother & his friend Kyle (and some other friend of theirs I do not know) are going on a cross country trip for two weeks to visit every random place you could possibly imagine in the U.S. Ultimately the end result is Colorado, but will be stopping in Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Nebraska, & South Dakota along the way. BUT on a trip like this, you could really end up anywhere. So it’ll be interesting to see what kind of Midwest characters they meet and the places they get to explore.
For accommodations, the boys have been in touch with people from http://www.couchsurfing.org/. This website helps get you connected with like-minded people who are basically offering up their couches to make the world a friendlier place and to encourage travel. As a girl, I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable. Immediately I would assume the person was using this site to be sneaky and turn me into their personal sex slave. But the couch surfing idea is perfect for Jason, Kyle & mystery friend. They get to save money on lodging and use it for gas, food, and gifts for Jason’s wonderful and loving sister (me). 🙂
