Running the Trans America Trail (TAT) from WV to the OR coast

We are going to start the TAT in Ripley, WV. We will continue west until we connect to the "Shadow of the Rockies" in CO, and will follow it north. We will reconnect to the TAT in WY. From there we will continue west on the TAT into ID where we will branch off to the Pacific Ocean Spur, and take it to the OR coast. In the map above, I marked in black following the TAT route we'll be taking. This event will take up to four to five weeks to complete.

Rally Point Notes:

The TAT starts in Ripley, WV, so that's where we will be beginning our journey on Saturday, 12 June 2021. We will start the driver's meeting at 0900 at the Walmart Supercenter #1450 200 Academy Drive, Ripley, WV 25271 (off I-77 at exit 138). Suggest folks start arriving at 0830 to meet & greet, and get vehicles lined-up. At 0900 we will put out any final information, make sure we're all on the same radio frequency (radio checks), answer any questions, assign numbers, and will then head out. Before we meet at 0900, ensure your vehicles have been gassed-up, coolers are filled, tummies are filled, bladders are emptied, and you're ready to roll. We will not be stopping right after we roll-out to get gas.
