Roadtrip Around the Southeast United States, July 2017

It is going to be an interesting Summer.

I’m fleshing out a trip that will take me around the South during the month of July.

Right now the schedule is looking something like this:

**These dates are tentative and are begging to change**

Miami: June 28–July 1

Tampa: July 1, 2

Gainesville: July 3

Atlanta: July 4–7

Nashville: July 5–8

Asheville: July 9

Hatteras/NC Coast: July 10–15

Charleston: July 16, 17

Savannah: July 18, 19

St. Augustine: July 20, 21

Miami: Until I leave.

Roadtrips are my favorite way to travel because they are so flexible. I plan on stopping in some small towns along the way based on recommendations from people I meet (or internet based suggestions).

Right now its looking like I’ll have a meetup in Atlanta, because a lot of people have been in touch from there–I’ve never been exploring in Atlanta before and am looking forward to it.

If you are along the route and want to be in contact, go ahead (best way to reach me is goldmundunleashed (at) mail (dot) com), comment here, or DM me on Twitter.

I also appreciate suggestions on interesting things to do while on the road, I enjoy the strange and bizarre, so if you know/can provide of anything along the lines of:

  • spectacular geological features
  • fishing spots
  • shooting guns (its the south, c’mon!)
  • place to hike/observe wildlife
  • rafting/canoeing (will be done in Asheville)
  • caves
  • a must see church service
  • a real witch
  • high quality hallucinogens
  • unique local cuisine
  • out of the way dive-bars
  • natural hotsprings

There is a good chance that if you think something is awesome and/or interesting, I’ll appreciate it, so let me know.

**I get most of my entertainment from real life and find the bark of a tree more fascinating than most Hollywood movies**

-Or, if you have a place for me to crash, we can work something out-

I know there are girls out there who read my stuff–don’t be scared! I’m a fucking gentleman in person.

I can’t promise we won’t steal a cab.

This trip will be documented in a project that I’m very excited about.

My skills will be utilized in the best way possible:

  • creating a good story everywhere I go
  • vivid writing based on those stories
  • beautiful photographs
  • poorly produced videos with interesting content

And these will come together in something that I’ve never seen done before, but have always wanted to enjoy.

This is shaping up to be another epic journey into the unknown, and as always, I can’t wait to discover what unfolds.

Be in touch Southerners!

    • I doubt I’ll make it that far North, but thanks anyway. Caves are always something I ask people about. Sometimes they point me to weird ones that aren’t monitored and quite dangerous.

  1. Looks like a great trip. I’ve been to all but two of those places: Nashville and Hatteras / Outer Banks. If you’re going to be doing Gainsville, FL, you should do Athens, GA when you come to Atlanta.

    • I lived for a short stint in St. Augustine and know the area a bit. Enjoyed that town.

      Met one of Bukowski’s old girlfriends there and she showed me some pictures of him and all the girls that he surrounded himself with. They were very dirty photographs.

      • What was Bukowski girlfriend doing in St. Augustine? I associate Bukowski with LA. That had to have been really interesting. It’s funny how some good looking girls like his writing.

        • Yeah, the girls in the photos were really sexy and he was fingering a couple at the same time.

          Don’t know what he was doing–I think he had a studio and some friends there in the 70s.

Comments are on now...go right ahead.
