Where the Journey Started
LOCATION: Chicago, Illinois
How do you manage to stay cheerful while enduring a 30-hour car ride? For me, a Dipped Cone was the answer. To provide some background: I attend the University of Arizona. I was thus tasked with trekking across the country to bring my junk from Chicago all the way to Tucson. To start the journey, I made a casual pit stop at the 'Golden Arch' to purchase a 99 cent Dipped Cone. Little did I know, this purchase became much more. The mood-boosting purchase transitioned to a daily road trip endeavor (since I decided to split up the 30 hours into three, 10 hour days).
During the drive, an idea and ultimately a goal sparked. I wanted to purchase a Dipped Cone in every state along the way. Some people document a 50 state goal with a map and a pin... I had to think of something different. My Generation Y behavior decided a 'selfie' was the best documentation tool. From that moment on, @dipyourcone was created and the passion began.
