Adventure Above: The story of travelling to every state by plane

By  | 

MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- One Washington state couple is working their way across the country, visiting every single state by plane.

Last week they stopped in the Grand Valley, at the Mack-Mesa airport.

"We kind of merged our passions and said let's fly to every state,” said Kyle Fosso, a member of Adventure Above.

"The land is so much more different than what we're used to and she couldn't keep the camera off,” Fosso said about his girlfriend, Samantha Hagan.

Fosso and Hagan want to create memories.

"Show people what their state is really like and show them how an airplane can improve their life,” said Fosso.

They created Adventure Above, and they're showcasing anything and everything they're doing.

"We make a vlog every week about our life,” said Fosso.

Deep down, they're just like your average couple. Their cross country journey started in Utah.

"The next thing I know I'm sitting at the bottom of a canyon getting sandblasted sitting on top of a cooler and holding the airplane because it was trying to pull out,” said Fosso.

It's safe to say their journey didn't get off to the best start.

"This is stupid, I'm sitting there on a cooler and getting burnt,” said Fosso.

There was a lot of work put into this trip.

"We've been planning for the last year,” said Hagan.

They kept on going. In fact, they've been so busy planning that Fosso forgot their three-year anniversary.

"I completely spaced it, I forgot,” said Fosso.
“I know you did,” said Hagan.

“Has it been that long?” Asked Fosso.

“It has,” said Hagan.

As for funding, Fosso is 23 years old and Hagan is 22, so it took some creativity to pay for this trip.

"We sold everything else and it's surprising how much you accumulate,” said Fosso.

What they have fits into their small airplane. At the end of the day the 'stuff' they sold is just that, and all they need is each other.

"You need me,” said Hagan

“I do, I told you that,” said Fosso.

Some other essentials along the way wouldn’t hurt, though.

"Showers, coffee, and my next plate of spaghetti,” said Fosso.

All to explore the country in a way not many people get to experience.
