Starting in April 2007, I traveled from Atlanta up to Tennessee and
halfway across the States along the TransAmerican Trail (TAT). The
TAT is a collection of unpaved trails (mostly Forest Service roads) that have been linked together to allow
off-road travel from Tennessee to Oregon. I roughly followed this route
as far as Colorado. Then I turned north through Wyoming and
Montana, traveling across Western Canada into Alaska. I reached the
Arctic Ocean in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska (northernmost city!)
in late August before turning south again. By November, I had traveled down the West Coast of the US
and entered Mexico's Baja Peninsula.
This trip lasted approximately 8 months and
covered 18,000 miles!
