Welcome to Rattrick.com
First of all, I'd like to thank you for visiting our website. Our latest road trip is set to start on August 6th, 2007 and run through August 25, 2007. We plan on doing a west coast swing after doing the eastern portion of the United States on our last road trip.
For those of you who haven't followed us on a road trip before, we invite you to check out our Road Trip 2004 Video. On our last trip, we drove 7,820 miles in 15 days, spent $758.65 on gas and touched 25 states. This trip, we expect to exceed 10,000 miles and with soaring gas prices, we expect to spend upwards of $1,500 on gas.
During the trip, you can check back for the following updates for each destination:
- Blog Posting/Status Updates
- Video (possibly)
I hope to have a program written in time that will allow viewers to track our location and progress live as it is plotted on a Google Map.
Everyone who knows about our trip always asks where we are going. We are firm believers in not setting a route before the trip and instead just going with the flow. As of now, we know we are headed to New Orleans the first night. After that, we're going to make our way toward Las Vegas. We do have things that we want to see on the trip including The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam. We know we want to at least get to Vancouver (so we can eat some poutine) and see everything in between.
UPDATE: Due to a family emergency in the Kunin family, the road trip had to be postponed until August 6th. Good news, however is that Sean Atteberry will now be able to go! It wasn't going to be the same without him.
