Micah Bahnfleth, Omaha, Nebraska "Spreading the Campus Crave"
Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, Micah Bahnfleth didn't live near any White Castle restaurants. But he developed a love for Sliders, nonetheless, thanks to his father, who never passed up an opportunity to stop at a White Castle when traveling. While in college in Omaha, Micah learned some of his friends never had White Castle. Surprised by the revelation and determined to show them what they'd been missing, Micah arranged a trip to the nearest White Castle, which just happened to be 4-1/2 hours away in Columbia, Missouri. One Friday night, Micah and three friends hopped in the car and made the 310-mile trip, pre-ordering a Crave Crate of 100 Sliders so they wouldn't have to wait a single minute once they arrived to satisfy their Crave. The long, late-night trip was worth the trouble, as his friends loved their first taste of White Castle. They were all back in Omaha by 8 the next morning, their "bellies full of those delicious burgers," Micah wrote. The spur-of-the-moment road trip reached legendary status among his peers, and Micah has since been on three more late-night White Castle runs from Omaha to Columbia, each time with first-timers. Micah says he's responsible for introducing White Castle to at least 30 people, including his wife, and he couldn't be more proud. "Over the years I've proven an extreme desire to satisfy my crave at a moment's notice, even when it means driving for nine hours when I should be sleeping, because that's what you have to do sometimes when you want quality burgers!"
