About Our Poker Pilgrimage

Our Pilgrimage

Welcome to our Poker Pilgrimage!

Our names are Paul and Heather. We are both avid poker players with a love for travel. Our dream is to spend a year traveling the country, seeing the sights, and visiting every decent poker room that we find along the way. A poker pilgrimage, if you may. Our current target date for this journey is 2022, the year when the youngest of our collective four children (two each from prior marriages) have departed for college and no longer need our doting presences in their daily lives.

About Our Poker Pilgrimage
Yep, that’s us at our recent New Orleans wedding.

In the meantime, we plan. We save money. We work on our game. And we play an awful lot of poker together.

PokerPilgrims is where we will share our progress as we prepare financially and logistically for this year long trip, learn about casinos and card rooms across the country, plan our route, find accommodations, and solve the problems that arise when one plans to spend a year away from home.

We hope to offer a full-service site for poker players and poker travelers. We are maintaining a map of all US (and a few Canadian) Poker Rooms, writing reviews of poker rooms as we experience them, our thoughts on what it means to live a poker lifestyle, and are currently working on a system to rate tournament structures, and a calendar of major poker tours.

Of course once we begin our journey, we will share our experiences along the way. In the meantime, as we take shorter poker journeys, we will share our experiences on those as well.

So come back regularly to see what’s new as we work toward our Poker Pilgrimage!
