I think that's one of the cooler things to come out of this whole "internets" thing.

...well, that, and HBT.

I'm going to take a bit of a sabatical and start showing up at peoples' doors. I'll make my way down to North Carolina, then over to Texas, I'll stop in with Yuri and BrewPastor for a couple days, I'll tour the country. If you hear a knock on the door at 2:00 in the morning, it's probably me.

Have car, have carboy, will travel.

Sound good?

If I were single, I'd do it for sure. Makes it a little tough with a wife and kid, though. Great way to travel cheap and meet people. Probably not for everyone, but hey, if you've got the personality for it...

I've probably hitchhiked the US a dozen times and had a blast meeting helpful people along the way ... This would have been handy... Maybe for the next one

You still have room with all the kids? Your house isn't full enough as is?

One organization I belong to has been doing this for decades. Ever try to convince a French couple that renting a car in Las Vegas, driving to the Grand Canyon, then San Diego, then Disneyland, Hollywood, S. F., Yosemite, the Redwoods, YELLOWSTONE and back to Las Vegas in TWO weeks is a bad idea?
