For anyone interested in truly getting away from it all, one lucky person will have a chance to spend six weeks road tripping around the state of Wyoming and living in a tiny house.

The Wyoming Office of Tourism will send an adventurer on a six-week trip around the state in a tiny 200-sq ft house. Those interested can apply online as part of the Call of the WY campaign by explaining why they’d like to be the one to take on the incredible road trip. 

Wyoming is one of the most sparsely populated states in the US – so there are plenty of wide-open spaces to explore – making it ideal for people who like to get a bit off-the-beaten-path. Famous as cowboy country, the state is also home to the incredible Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.

“For those of us lucky enough to live in Wyoming, we understand the things that make it so special. The wide-open spaces, the mountains, the outdoor recreation, the beautiful skies, the wildlife and most importantly the people,” said Wyoming Governor Matt Mead in a press release.

The adventurer will get to travel to iconic spots through the state, like driving the Beartooth Highway, visiting natural hot springs in Cody/Yellowstone Country, going to a pow wow in Wind River Country, stargazing near Pinedale and hiking in Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area – and will share their experiences on social media.
