Name Take the red pill!

Imagine for a moment that you are a modern day explorer. Your self-imposed mission is to seek out the greatest mysteries Earth has to offer, whether they be modern, ancient, natural or manmade. You have an insatiable desire for knowledge. May no ghost town, cryptid sighting, paranormal, supernatural, or UFO-related occurrence go undiscovered, you say.

As often as possible, you prefer to avoid utilizing cars. Trains, trollies, boats, the occasional animal -- those aren't so bad. Indeed, they can prove to be an adventure in and of themselves! But, for the most part, you prefer to feel the Earth beneath your soles. After all, some things are easy to miss when you're not right on top of it!

When you wind down for the night, your evening bed is often a tent pitched beneath the stars. Other nights, in the interest of fostering lasting friendships, you make use of Couchsurfers. After all, you're not JUST out to solve mysteries; your accruement of knowledge extends to cultural exchange as well!

During your downtime -- which, considering your chosen field of exploration, can sometimes be fairly often -- you enjoy immersing yourself in breathtaking scenery, marveling at feats of architectural genius, perusing myriad museums and quirky local shops, and just generally milking as much out of whatever town you happen to be passing through as you possibly can.

This is my dream. To start, I would like to spend a year exploring the United States. Who am I? Just a girl who's unwilling to completely let go of her childlike wonder. A girl who's convinced that there's more to the world than what can be observed on the surface, who's fairly certain she was either a nomad or a wild animal in a previous life, and who hits pretty much all of the major categories of nerd. :P

I'm in search of one or two like-minded individuals who want to realize this dream with me. Life is too short to spend it in the dark! When responding, tell me about yourself. What your interests are and what YOU would want out of this journey. I look forward to hearing from you! :)

**Take the cost estimation with a grain of salt. I theorize that we'll set a goal amount to save up beforehand -- jointly -- and make more as needed along the way. Assume we'll generally be living pretty rough, probably with breaks in between when we inevitably yearn for civilization. :P
