Winning Bigly

Waxing Crescent Moon

The results have been tabulated and, as promised, here are the winners of the 2016 Name This Trip Contest:

Dishonorable Mention:

Captain Chem of Aptos CA, despite several clever and potentially winning submissions, was disqualified for attempting to bribe the judge. Big shame on you, Captain Chem.

Honorable Mention:

“Globe Plodder” – Mindy (Cud’n Mindy) Scherr, San Juan Bautista CA

Third Place:

“Ocean to Ocean Locomotion” – Anita (Shorty) Kane, Hollister CA

Second Place:

“Strolling With the Angels” – John (El Numero Uno) Ostdick, Dallas TX

(Drum roll, please)

First Place:


“Trail Tales: My Crazyass Walk From Coast to Coast” – Jeanette (The Jet) Horley, San Juan Bautista CA

Thanks to all the brave patriots who participated in this vicious, nail-biting competition. You (well, ahem, MOST of you) have done your nation proud. The creaky, slumped-over-in-their-chairs founding fatherdudes salute you, sharply reminded by the bossy old motherfounders.

Jeanette, congratulations, your highly coveted “Loneliest Road in America” decal will be mailed to you from Fallon NV just as soon as I can get there.

Peace, Love, and Wordsmithing,
