Ryan Jerz to tour Republic of Molossia

The Republic of Molossia is a micronation located near Dayton, complete with its own constitution, crest, and currency.

What I wrote caught the eye of Molossian President Kevin Baugh, and he sent me the following note yesterday:

Mr. Jerz, Greetings.

In an unsolicited response to your blog note on Molossia, I would like to invite you to visit our little country. Sometime after April would be best, as the winter weather can make a visit somewhat chilly, and at any rate the Ministry of Yard Work is yet again re-landscaping the front of Government House, making the view less than lovely. Let me know if you are interested, and we can set up a tour. I will be happy to show you around, talk a bit about Molossia, feed you cookie dough, stamp your passport and generally give you something unusual to write about on your blog.

Regards,
His Excellency President Kevin Baugh,
Republic of Molossia

Awesome. As I said to Baugh in my response, touring and cookie dough sounds like a fine afternoon. We’ll be setting up my visit later on, as I want to wait until Molossia is ready to accept official visitors.

In case you didn’t know, it’s actually every blogger’s dream to become a part of actual history. I have that chance if I were to make a decent impression on President Baugh. Perhaps I can be entered into the annals of Molossian history and eternally be a part of one nation’s permanent record.

Now I probably should go get myself a passport.

Update

Please see my recap of the trip.
