travel companion needed June-August 2013: Oregon + Seattle + Michigan + California + Colorado + Idaho + Hawai'i

I like traveling, especially national parks in the US. I've been to 22 states in USA and 22 national parks out of 59. I am currently working on my PhD, but i am trying to travel/fly 2-3 times per month: I am working toward Million Miler status with Continental/United Airline. I'm looking for travel companion. My style: Nature + Recreation + Adventure. I'm not really a touristy type traveler and I usually like exploring hidden gems locals recommend (not necessarily camping or hiking)

I BRIEFLY listed some places I am going to visit: some of them are not under national park service but they look better than typical national parks. If your are interested in joining me, let me know and maybe we can try to plan something!
