I have the utmost respect for this young man, he is everything we should be around here. The true spirit of DIYD. I have followed him with great interest since he started the journey towards the cross country flight. Its worth reminding ourselves of where he was at in 2011.

He crashed the one with those on I think trying to repair it overnight.

That was the whole idea of having back-up plane. I did not see logos on a plane in-repair.

Good work Gary, I was considering doing an update on Trent's behalf also.  He is going to be too busy to scratch himself for the coming week (or more).

Anyone looking to keep up with the teams progress should visit this page where you will find regular updates via twitter feed and a glimpse into excitement via ustream.

It would be nice to have a map of the continental United States showing his cumulative progress, and perhaps some highlights such as miles/kilometers covered each day.

Great work Team Trent! Keep up the good work we're rooting for you!
