Kosmic Eastern Seaboard Coast Trip

Living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Sitting in an adirondack chair in your backyard on a hot summer afternoon. There are no waves. Just turned September so hurricane season is about to start firing. Minds wandering as your slugging down some cheap beer. What if you dropped everything and went on an epic east coast surf trip following the storm swell up and down the eastern seaboard. That would be rad, but a pipe dream for 99.9% of us.
Not for one guy. Kosmic Keith. After many years of so so ideas, dreams and procrastination he came up with an plan. Then it took many years to muster up the sea grapes to do it. The Kosmic Kwest. Maybe this years red tide pushed him over the edge, maybe it was the strange “plants” that influenced the decision. Whatever it was, at the height of hurricane season, he gone.
Follow the journey as hes been sending in some evidence. The latest stage of the trip below, older updates below that.

Sat Sept 1
Have you wondered how Keith is funding this mission? He has no job, no money, no prospects but he isn’t completely without skill.

How do you feel about panhandlers on busy intersections asking for money? Well, Keith is hoping that some down home honesty will help him fund his trip. I’d throw him a few shells and a few others actually have! Check out his Go Fund Me page. If the link doesn’t work thats because it isn’t real but should be haha.
