This is my first post ever, I've been a member for 4ish months I think...? but I've been watching Red vs Blue since it first came out, and my friends still quote it to this day. I can recite much of the first 2 seasons.
I am super excited because this summer I'm driving all the way from MAINE, to TEXAS to go to RTX. that's about a 36 hour drive. I'm going with millerj, other wise known as Joseph or Joe Miller. He's a huge Rooster Teeth fan like me, and he's actually meet the crew at PAX. I'm also going with my old college room mate Matt. I introduced him to red vs blue and rooster teeth about 6 months ago, and he's been hooked ever since. The three of us are driving and we're making it a road trip.
We're first leaving on July 4th, from Maine at 9AM to Baltimore RI, which is about 10 yours. Joe has some family there so we're gonna party in Baltimore on the 4th. Then the next morning on the 5th we're gonig to leave around 9AM again, and drive straight to Austin, which is according to google about 26 hours. We are going non stop and are just going to switch drives and take shifts. we're also taking my car because it gets the best gas mileage and it's also the newest car (2007 Mazda 3).
When we get to Austin, it will be around 10 or so in the morning on the 6th, so that day we will probably drive around and/or explore the city, maybe visit some of the restaurants and locations the guys talk about on the podcast. We are staying at the Austin Lone Star RV resort. It's 30 bucks a night per person, and we're staying 2 nights, 3 days. That's much cheaper then getting a hotel, but also no AC, so it will be hot as hell, especially in July.
I'm so pumped for RTX, and I can't wait to go. I currently just "graduated" from college, (I still need 5 credits to get my deploma, minor details, I'm taking a couple summer classes to get them.) my major is Media Studies, with a focus in film production. I'm also trying to start a production company with some friends who also graduated with me and do shorts and also professional work sort of like Rooster Teeth. I'm also applying for production assistant jobs and camera man and/or editing jobs around the North East, New England area, but I would 100% totally drop everything to move to Austin to work for Rooster Teeth. (I somewhat feel like in writing this right now am writing a cover letter for the company)
But anyways back to my trip.
Each of us have budged out money for gas and food and swag, and found that it's cheaper to drive then fly. After TRX, we are leaving and going down through Louisiana, and over to Griffin Georgia, where Matt has relatives that we are staying at. We also have potential stops in Charlotte North Carolina, I have really close family friends there, but if we don't stay there, we are driving from Griffin back to Baltimore, then back to Maine. This entire trip is going to be about a week.
Now that I'm graduated, and I will be going to the real world soon, I figure this is one of the last times I will ever be able to go on a road trip and do what I want before I settle down, and what better then to do it going to RTX, right? am I right?
Hopefully, I will be taking pictures as I go and upload when I can. I will be posting more as I get more planned for this road trip, so yeah, things are going to be awesome!
