Nathan is getting ready to fly to Portland tomorrow to pick up his Brammo Enertia at Best Buy.
He will then start riding it home. He may even ride it a bit farther.
Home, for Nathan, is Atlanta, Georgia.
Here’s his planned route:
Nathan has called himself a “Brammo Fool” and an “idiot.” Here in Brammofan Central, we’re withholding judgment, (although if anyone wants to get in the betting pool on 1. number of days until voyage ends; 2. number of total miles traveled; or 3. amount of ransom requested by the banditos that capture him in Juarez, please leave your contact information in the comments, below.)
Nathan says that part of the inspiration for his ride was the ShockingBarack trip, from Detroit to Washington, D.C. Brian Wismann wasn’t available for comment, but I imagine he’s hoping for a “fairy tale ending” to this one.
I will, of course, follow his grand adventures across the nation. What’s not to love about this story?
T-minus 1.5 days until this little 3800 mile, 300 kilowatt, cross-country electric folly kicks off. 49 degrees & raining in Portland but I couldn’t be more excited. Yeah, water & electricity aren’t BFF but when you think about it, life is a risk… and maybe the greatest risk you run in life isn’t dying, but never making time to be alive. Whatev. It’s not every day you get to ride a 65mph computer across the country. Sh**ty motels, here I come. It’s carpe diem time.
