We spent all weekend picking up gear, "faux packing" and getting our brains ready. One last shop at Sundown and Adorama and we'll be sorted, I hope. The Intertia presented this handy guide... 

Supporters! Please read about your ticket to ride with us!

Bargain basement $10 for two weeks of vicarious adventure!

There's only one day left for people to sign up for our follow-along Instagram and we're trying to get as many people following us as possible. If you know someone who'd be interested, it is the base-level reward! 

Full pre-production is in effect. Ordering supplies, setting up gear rentals, plotting our itinerary. I didn't know you could make a customizable Google Map, but boy is that useful. 

Noah Sabich sent through this interesting article that makes me feel both good (and bad) (but ultimately good) (sorta) : American Schools Are Training Kids for a World That Doesn’t Exist.

 And this came in the mail today:

 And here's one more thing just to make us, once again, realize that good vibes bring us together.

Three Days Left To Support & Get The Daily Diary

 There are only three days left to make sure people have exclusive access to the daily "Boy's Journey" instawebfeed thing we will be broadcasting during our trip. My normal bleeding-the-feed Instagram account will be on hiatus as we will be posting updates from a super secret trap door spy glass account with matching undercover web accessibility. Please still pass it on!

Today was a typically odd day in New York City. We braced for a massive dump and got a little one, but one that offered a ton of good sledding. It only got more abnormal as Robinson got to hand-paint the board he shaped with Christian at Token. 

It's an incredible thing what this project has already brought us and we haven't even left the ground yet. We can hardly believe our luck to clue into such a generous and visionary community. Thank you all.
