Yes friends, I have been spending a lot of time working on Grinch lately, but I have also been working on securing partners for this adventure. Today I sent the following letter out countless times (yes I personalized where I could). Let me be clear, this trip is happening no matter what, but if any of my perspective partners want to ease my financial burden, or just give me a shiny new toy to play with this summer. I’d be ok with that too.
To whom it may concern,
“Who has not felt the urge to throw a loaf of bread and a pound of tea in an old sack and jump over the back fence.” – John Muir
My name is Tyler DeLong and I have had this urge most of my life. The road trip has long been part of the American experience. It is deeply ingrained in our culture through film, music, and countless stories across print and digital media. At its height it was a family tradition for many, but slowly over the years it has waned to mainly being a thing of the past. I plan on not only reviving the road trip this summer, but sharing it across several social media platforms as well as a website that I have created for blogging this adventure.
I am reaching out to you because I would like to invite you to become a partner in this endeavor. Please check out my planned route on the website and if you are at all intrigued I’d like to open a dialogue about how you and your company can become a partner in this experience.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you taking the time to consider becoming a partner with A Man, A Jeep, and No Real Plan.
