In early spring of 2007 I decided to quit my job, sell my house along with nearly everything else that I owned, and to live out of my car while traveling the country. These are my stories (and pictures) of life on the road.

Well, I managed to keep myself from going out to eat last night and instead stayed in and cooked up some onion and zucchini that I'd gotten at the farmers market; which I mixed with some tuna, pasta, and olive oil. I realized this morning that I'd totally forgotten I'd bought a big bunch of basil to use too! Oh well, next time.

If felt good to do some actual cooking again instead of just making stuff like sandwiches or eating what other people feed me (not that I have a problem with other people cooking for me).

Hey, the food looks delicious and you're a great cook (I know from experience what you can do with a can of tuna!), but I want more pictures of other things. Can I make some requests? I'd like to see a photo of an animal or bird that would never be seen in Iowa, a cat, and an interesting shadow. And you! And can you get them all in one shot? Just kidding.

Hey Al I have a ton of basil this year. Wish you were here to enjoy it. ( and keep it pruned )

You've reached the end of the page but that's not the end of the stories. If you want to read more (and who wouldn't!?) then click on the archive links to the right hand side of the page. They're listed by month; the adventure starts in May.

The February archives aren't actually from this trip but are previous adventures I've had, which are worth reading as well.
