Brand new here, lurked for a good bit, and this idea prompted me to register. Now, this is a very tentative idea, but hear me out. I am very interested in participating in the CCST, but I live in South Carolina (woe is me, I know) and that makes me unable to be a viable driver/passenger in what is an awesome idea, and from what I've read, is an awesome experience. But then I thought wait, it's nearly the same distance from the start to South Bend as it is from where I live to South Bend. So why not start a band of us from the southeast and meet up with the legitimate CCST in South Bend? Just throwing out an idea, and I'd like to get some responses from anyone who's south of the route but wants to go. If it's just me, then, well, I guess I'm fucked.
