    Hows it going Ladies and Gentlemen,

    On April 28th am embarking on my Cross-Country move from the east coast to somewhere in the west coast. I will be leaving my truck in Seattle from May 10th-Sept. 15th while I captain my boat in Alaska.

    I am driving from Central New York to Washington and I would like to document and share my experience with everyone. I plan on breaking my trip up into 3 legs:

    Leg 1: NY to Columbus Ohio...Picking up one of my best friends from School and were going to bass fish for 2 days around Columbus.

    Leg 2: OH-East Grand Forks Minn.... Reconnecting with all of my other best friends for 3 days, Walleye, Northerns, and lots of beer, and guns.

    Leg 3: Minn- Seattle WA.... As soon as we leave Minnesota we are going to go straight to Montana and camp and fish our way around for 3-4 days... I would like to also spend a few days in Yellowstone or Glacier Nat. Park.

    Awesome. I've got an aunt and Uncle who just moved from a little teeny tiny fish hatchery near Sitka back to Juneau.

    The Winters are way better in Southcentral.. way less rain and way more snow.

    Cool, hope it turns out to be a good adventure of a life time. I've been wanting to do an extended cross country journey/adventure/expedition etc for a while.
