In the dim recesses of the past lies the memory of a fated conversation at a particular Pizza Hut in Houghton, Michigan. Several of us were huddled in a dim pool of light cast by the fixture overhead. In hushed voices someone, whose identity shall forever remain a mystery, uttered these fateful words, "Let's go on a trip." The rest is soon to be history. Josh "Eleven" Stone and Josh "Fractional" Myles present to you the official travel guide and log of our Trek Across America .

Here we will be updating our progress with photographs, comments, political commentary, jokes, and other words of wisdom provoked by our experiences on the open road. Check this page frequently, as we will be updating it as often as a phone line crosses our path.
