The City of Angels, Time to Head East

I took today off. I had breakfast, and I made an appointment for a neck and shoulder massage at my hotel (known as the tech massage). No plans for site seeing today. I saw quite a bit of LA yesterday, it was great. So it’s time to start heading east, back toward home. Am IContinue reading “The City of Angels, Time to Head East”

The Pacific Coast; Washington and Oregon

One thing I neglected to mention in my previous post, about my spot at the Kalaloch Campground, was just how close it was to US-101. When I pulled into the site, I noticed a little opening that looked perfect for the tent. As I went to inspect it, I realized it was maybe 100 feetContinue reading “The Pacific Coast; Washington and Oregon”

Seattle… Where the Smoke Broke and the Clouds Hung Low

Around 4,500 miles, over 44 different sights, 3 weeks of driving, and two days ago, I arrived in Seattle, WA.

I navigated hairpinContinue reading “A Little Rough Around the Edges”

Week 1 – The Great Road Trip

I don’t know if this will be a long post or a brief one. I’m currently at a hotel in Sioux City, Iowa. I’ll start with what I’ve learned so far. 5 hours of driving daily is a bit excessive. So, I’ve cut out the Colorado sites and set up a more relaxed trip acrossContinue reading “Week 1 – The Great Road Trip”

Where is she Going?

It’s almost time! In a few short days, I’ll be packing my car up with (what I hope to be) everything I need for this epic journey I’m about to take. While doing my research for this road trip, I found a great way to plot out my path. Of course, because I’m the secretiveContinue reading “Where is she Going?”

It’s not the end, it’s the beginning…

First, let me start by saying it has been a long time since I’ve written for myself. I’ve spent almost 20 years writing for work in some capacity or another, so writing like this, it’s going to be challenging. But I have to do it because, for the first time in 12 years and 7Continue reading “It’s not the end, it’s the beginning…”
