Best Buy Super Associates

We were up in Houston visiting a friend who was very excited about a thrift shop.

Normally I'm not a thrift shop kind of guy. I'm too particular about what I buy and I just don't like shopping that much.

But this time I was excited.

Zac "Happydud" Cohn's Summer Parkour Adventure

On Jumping on Entrepreneurship

For the longest time, I've always wanted to wander. Every few months I'd come up with an idea. Last year I spent about a week trying to figure out how long it would take to walk across the country, from the Atlantic to the Pacific (ending in San Fransisco, because it's the best city that side of New York City).

For the few past month or so, I've been planning a Cross-country Parkour tour for this summer. Within the past month, it's really taken off. I'm going to be crashing on traceurs' couches, chairs, beds, and floors. I'm going to be hitting up as many of the national jams as possible, and visiting as many local communities as I can. I'm also planning on buying a camcorder (read: already bought it, waiting for it to be shipped!) and making a documentary about the whole trip. Kind of a "This is how America trains!" sort of thing.

These are the cities I'm planning on going to, most likely in this order:

DCPittsburghPhillyNYCClevelandDetroitAnn Arbor/UofMChicagoMinneapolisMadisonSeattleSan FransiscoLAPhoenixDenverOklahoma CitySan AntonioAustinMiamiWest Palm BeachJacksonvilleAthens, GACharlotteChapel HillDC

I'm currently aiming for it taking about 7-8 weeks. I'll be starting in DC with (B)East Coast at the end of May, but then I'm hanging around the area until the Philly jam on June 6-7th. From there I'm headed back to NJ/NYC with Jesse/Hardcoretracuer, and I'm using his house as a base of operations until PKNY. So lucky NYC, I'll be around for two and a half, three weeks!
