Lowest Highest Point.

Lowest Highest Point.

Hey Team,

Here’s the skinny: I’m supposed to be in Utah by the 19th to go fly-fishing but getting across the country is expensive…so sometimes you have to get creative.

I was checking craigslist.org for rideshares a few days ago and came across an ad for a guy who is moving to San Francisco and needs his truck delivered. Shipping a car across the country is an even more expensive proposition than “shipping” a person. So Murell is paying for the gas and trusting me to get his car to SF by the 18th so I can hop over to SLC from there. Thanks Murell!

All I have to do is spend a MISERABLE amount of time alone in a truck staring at the road (not a book, don’t worry guys). But on the upside I decided to take the southern route across which means I can make a couple list crossing pit stops along the way!

Yesterday I stopped at a little thing I like to call the “Lowest Highest Point in a state” and…boy howdy am I dumb.

The Lowest Highest Point in the country

I don’t want to give too much away before Wednesday’s podcast but suffice it to say:

1. I got HORRIBLY lost and didn’t end up at the place until well after dark.

2. The place closes at sunset.

3. The REASON it closes at sunset is because it’s a heavily wooded area.

4. I don’t carry a flashlight.

5. I didn’t bring anyone with me to hide behind and whimper.

6. I’m WAY to stubborn to make a SECOND trip out just because it’s dark.

So with a little help from my Sherpa Charley I did the deed (creeped out though I may have been) and crossed another one off the list! Ka-KOW!!!

The video (with a few more details) will be up Wednesday at 6pm Pacific!

Okay, better go do some driving!

I’m done.


Help support my overwhelming stupidity!

  1. Gee, back to utah eh? Sounds like some Boston connections back home are making good for Bretty Boy! Give my love to the Provo River, and that better be where somebody is taking you, so help me Mormon God….

  2. You only have 21 and almost a half left! šŸ™‚ Annnd sounds like you’ll be clearing more off in the very near future!

    I was driving through Oregon yesterday and I got really excited because I saw a covered bridge…I’m pretty sure for the first time in my life! And I instantly thought of you. Like, when I saw the billboard for it way before I actually saw the bridge. šŸ˜€
