This is the first hand account of two fellows, Joshua Hansmeier and Luke Christian, who are seeing the United States from a rare vantage point; off the beaten path and via motorcycles.
For those of you just tuning in, the TAT stands for Trans America Trail, a 5000 mile dirt route across the United States. From Tennessee, we'll follow the trail all the way to the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon Coast. Follow us here as we document our adventure over the next six weeks.

Dangerous Trail ahead
Our new tent officially sucks. 7x7 must be measured the cheater way they measure TV sets cuz I sure do not fit. We awoke this morning in our cow pasture campsite and are now headed into Colorado. We already have seen 5 other riders on the route today, however they all moteled it last night. They appropriately hung their heads in shame as they rode by us and our campsite.
