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.

Reporting live from Urgent Care
The guy in the pic is a rider in the Colorado 1000 (a motorcycle event that happens to be going on at the same time we are in CO) who happened upon the scene and happened to be a medic as well. He poured on the peroxide and wrapped it up and told us to get to a proper place to have it stitched ASAP. He had a member of his party killed near Lake City two days ago while Luke and I were in town. He came around a hill a little too hot and a little too far in the wrong lane and was caught head on by a Jeep. We heard of this the day it happened from Lake City, but just found out here with the medic that the man killed was from his party. This news definitely made us slow down a bit, and take it a little easier than we had been. This situation could definitely be worse, so we are thankful. By morning we are hoping that Luke can walk, Michael can see, and all 3 of us can be back on the trail.
