HOLY SHIT! As I typed the blog title my heart started beating a bit faster. Am I saying holy shit because we aren’t prepared… um NOPE. We are just about ready for this adventure… the only thing left is to actually make it all happen.
- Road trip itinerary – CHECK
- Tackle packs for 18 anglers + one giveaway pack – CHECK
- Fishing gear ready – CHECK
- Truck maintenance – CHECK
- Out of office sign already on the door – CHECK
Basically the only thing left to do is to meet up with Above the Hook guys and Jesse Landry next weekend to grab their kayaks and fishing gear because we are hauling it across the country. How is that for service? We have this giant trailer available to us thanks to Tim and Chris Boyer of Pure Watersports so we might as well take our own kayaks and gear. A nice win for all of us traveling from California… our own boats in Louisiana.
Once we have all of the gear… it is time to batten down the hatches, close up the NRS Bill’s bags, attach the trailer and GO. We are aiming to leave a week from tomorrow on Monday 11/9. This should put us in the Houston area by Wednesday night. First order of business in Houston is to visit a good friend of ours before stopping off to visit Heath from Buggs Fishing and Rex DeGuzman of ActionHat. From there we are off with Rex back on the road but this time as a convoy.
Remember… we will be blogging and posting a ridiculous amount of content throughout this trip. To keep up with it all, head to our Louisiana Road Trip 2020 page.
