The Invitation

OK guys, here's the deal:

I was planning my winter break and was wondering the best method for getting to Southern California for Christmas, and someone suggested I get people I know (and a few strangers) to drive me down and back, passing me off from one to the other, like a bunch of mini-roadtrips with a bunch of different people. I talked a little more with some people and decided to go with something completely different, and not even make SoCal my ultimate destination. My goal now is to take a trip to the East Coast and back over winter break, by whatever route I can. I have about 15 volunteers already, each offering their services ranging from a floor to sleep on, to "quasi-concierge service" in a city, to a bed and an 8-hour driving radius. I have a map that I've been drawing on, and it's showing that I'll need a lot more volunteers to make this feasible. So now I'm asking everyone I know for their help. If you are going to be in any state (or province!) other than Oregon between December 8th and January 8th, and you think a little roadtrip might be fun, let me know as soon as possible! The information I need to be able to plan this thing is:

1) What city you will be in, and when;
2) Which days you would be able to dedicate to this (e.g. "any day except Christmas," "any weekday," etc.);
3) If you have a bed or floor that I can stay a night on; and
4) How far you're willing to drive me.

If I get enough people in enough places to make a complete chain, I will be buying a videocamera so I can document the whole thing.

ALSO: If you know someone that I don't know, and they're not the kidnapping type, tell them to get in contact with me, too! On an adventure like this, I'd want to meet as many new people as, the more volunteers I have, the more likely I'll actually be able to go through with it.

If you're interested, there are close to a trillion ways to get in contact with me. Email( and phone (541-255-5027) are the two that most readily come to mind.

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you.
