Okay this update is way late, but Nick made it to the east coast on Feb 13th (he started in LA, CA). For more details visit his Spot page. Way to go Nick!
Nick is bringing back the postcards:
It was pretty cool getting postcards for updates!
We were also included on the emails, the stories were pretty entertaining, one was talking about a "road" in NM to a town called Gleeson "...and the down was super sketchy, causing me to dab more than once. And when you have the trailer on the back, high speed sand dabbing is less than ideal. But, I made it across, and finally got to the pavement and that pretty funny sign."
