Well, as you can tell from the title, I’m getting real damn excited. We have a lot going on right now, some of which I’m not at liberty to discuss yet. But we can touch on a little bit of it. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been gearing my 60 up for a pretty sizable trip this coming fall.(At least one, actually.) Before I jump into that one, let me talk about another upcoming trip we’re planning. After some discussion, it’s looking like we’ll be headed to ATR(Appalachian Toyota Roundup.) I’ve heard about it for some time, but I’ve never had the capability to make it up there in my truck and that’s something I’ve really wanted to do. It’ll be a solid drive for the ole girl(8ish hours), but we’ve already established that she’s capable of that. I just hope it gets cool enough to actually enjoy the camping part of the event.
Anyway, on to real exciting shiz. Just a little background, I’ve grown up only 90 miles from the beach. My grandparents had a house, so we always went. Well, ever since I was kid, I wanted to drive on the beach and I’m FINALLY getting my wish!! That brings me to the juicy stuff. The planning is still being worked out, but we’ll be doing about 600-700 miles from the most northern part on the North Caroline coast and down and finishing on Savanna Georgia. A lot of this will be beach driving, there will be several ferry crossings, and a little bit of forest service roads too. Honestly, to say I’m excited is a gross understatement. Between camping on some really remote islands, on the beach, and hanging out with some awesome people, yeah, one could understand where I’m coming from. The best part about it all, all of you reader will get to experience it too. We’ll be filming the whole thing for a three part YouTube series. More on this as I get more information and closer to go time.
As always, this is Rich signing off.
