WindSurfing Mag Hits the Road!

Question: What's the easiest way for an adventurous windsurfer to get
from Orlando, FL to Hood River, OR?

Answer: He should fly.

Question: How can an adventurous windsurfer meet as many sailors as
possible between the East coast and the West one?

Answer: Drive from Orlando to Hood River and back - And make some stops
along the way.

Here's the gig, kids - WindSurfing's Managing Managing Editor
Josh Sampiero (that would be me) is hittin' the road. The ultimate
destination is Hood River - but the goal is to see as much of
windsurfing America as possible - and meet a ton of windsurfers. If
I'm anywhere near you, give me a shout. Fill me in on your area -
the hotspots, the people, everything. I want to hang out, meet people,
trade stories, take pictures, and of course, go windsurfing!

My tentative itinerary is below -

Wednesday, June 14 - Atlanta (Atlanta Boardsailing Club meeting)

Thursday-Fri-Saturday - En route to Madison - possible stops in
Michigan, Indiana, or Ohio.

Saturday or Sunday (June 17-18): Madison, Wisconsin -*** out
with Gary Stone during Roger and Ellen's windsurfing clinics.

Monday/Tuesday (June 19-20): St. Paul/Minneapolis.

Wednesday/Thurs/Fri: Worthington, MN

>From Worthington, I'll be headed to Hood River. If you're on the

way, let me know -  I don't have any stops planned on that stretch
yet, but I've got the time to check out some places. I'll be taking
I-90 west, through South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho- then
crossing into Washington. Any advice as far as that portion of the
drive is really, really appreciated - places to stop, things to see,
campgrounds, etc. I've heard about this place called Buffalo Bill
Park in Wyoming - I'm thinking of checking that out depending on
timing.

When I head back from HR in Aug/Sept, I'll be spending some time in
the Bay area, then heading back east - definitely be stopping at the
Toucan at Lake McConaughy. More details on that trip as it gets closer.

Please, use this thread as a spot to suggest places to check out,
people to meet, etcetera.
Anyone is of course free to e-mail me directly at
josh.sampiero_at_worldpub_dot_net.

I don't promise to be wired everyday, but hope to check in on e-mail
atleast once daily.

Thanks, and hope to see some of you out on the water soon!

- Josh

Wow Josh, sounds like a great vacation..er...research sabbatical. Hope Eddie
is covering your gas.

Your interest and stoke in this sport is righteous. Awesome that you
continue to reach out and connect with Jane and Joe-six-oh. The zine has
definitely phattened up since your tenure there which is testament to your
enthusiasm and outreach.

Look forward to your spin through our windy corner of the universe where you
have about 3,000 hands to shake.

Hugh

What a great idea, congrats! It doesn't sound like you're getting too
close to Wichita, but that is a windy place and nice piece of water,
Lake Cheney I believe.

Please say hello to the ABC guys for me - Chris V, Gregg C, William F,
Gene M, Dan B, etc.

Well it looks like we will be in Hood River the same time (unfortunately I
won't be there as long as you though), BUT you forgot to tell us what your
vehicle of choice looks like :-)  How we going to pick you out of the
thousands of windsurfers who are out there :-)

Dog doesn't do much TV.  If I've got time for TV, there are other
projects that really need doing...

Like kegging beer!  30 gallons are carbonating as I type.

By the way, I drug my feet on letting Windsurfing Mag know I moved and
I really wanted the last couple of issues I missed. I called them the
other day and they were super-nice and wouldn't take my money, just
said they would get me the missed issues if they had them in the
warehouse. I hope they are as nice to work for as they were to me.

To all of you who've sent e-mails already, thanks! To the rest of ya,
keep 'em comin!
