Come along on the journey from Brooklyn to Nashville with Urban Cowboy owners Lyon Porter and Jersey Banks!
Owners of Urban Cowboy Bed and Breakfast, Lyon Porter and Jersey Banks set out on a two week journey from Brooklyn to Nashville. They hit the open road in their 1989 Wagoneer, named Butch, after picking up a 1972 Airstream, dubbed Sunny, and set off to the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. They had no agenda, and no real plan other than making it to Nashville in one piece. After a few breakdowns, bears, whiskey and a lot of fun, they made it (barely).
The below images of their journey show modern pioneers, forging ahead to new lands in search of life’s next adventure. For them, this adventure is their second location, Urban Cowboy B&B Nashville.
