Four college students, The Durango Drifters: Amy, Billy, Tricia, and Kristina are readying for their cross country adventure. On May, 26th 2010 the friends plan on piling into a Dodge Durango for 37 days to drive from from one end of the country to the other and back again. Along the way they will cover 19 state, camp in nine national parks, shoot rapids, scale mountains and attend a couple of big league games. At least that is their plan.
Anyone who has taken a major road trip knows these guys are in for the time of their lives. Sure they will see the country… but the epic side of this journey will come from the experiences they have, the people they meet and finding out more about themselves. You know you really can’t help but uncover little truths about yourself when you are ass to elbows in a truck for weeks on end and no one is bathing on a regular basis.
But if everything goes as planned, these guys from the east coast will have experiences to last a lifetime. They will cruise below sea level across Death Valley, sore over Pikes Peak, cross the great divide and maybe find the worlds largest ball of twine. They also plan on sharing their adventure with friends and family by posting their journey on their website The Durango Drifters so that everyone can participate in their joy ride.
Life is pretty simple, you do some stuff that works and some stuff that doesn’t. The trick is to find what stuff works that is different than what everyone else does. Helen Keller said “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” These guys definitely have the Hula Betty spirit and we hope they have a daring adventure of a life time… Be sure to stop by their site and wish them well.
