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.

Last nights site in N Nevada
Another great night camping last night. We found a flat spot near a dry rocky creek bed and built a fire down on the rocks. We had seen lots of rabbits on the trail so we had the gun handy all night in hopes we'd see another one we could eat up. We did see one, falling for our carrot bait trap and Luke just barely missed it with my pistol. Had to fire the gun in the night too from the tent to chase off coyotes that would not stop yipping and yapping long enough to fall asleep.
