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.

Happy anniversary!!

I can't believe I missed my anniversary! As of July 16th I've been on the road and traveling for 2 months now and I'm still loving it!

When I started I was unsure of how I'd feel at the 2 month mark. Didn't know if I'd be sick and tired of bouncing from town to town and mainly sleeping in my car or a tent. I didn't know if I'd be bored with traveling and would want to settle back down or if I'd want to continue. I've actually been amazed at how fast the time has flown by, it definitely doesn't feel like two months have passed since I left Estherville. I kind of thought that my plan on staying in the PNW until labor day weekend, when I'll meet up with Sarah in Colorado, was probably going to give myself too much time and that I'd be bored with the area. In fact the opposite is true, I feel like I've only scratched the surface out here, there is still tons of stuff I want to see and do and people that I want to meet. I see now that there's no way I'm going to get everything done that I wanted to while I was out here. Barring any unforeseen circumstances in the next month I've got a pretty good idea that this fall will still find me out on the road seeing new things.

Hmmm, maybe I should go out to eat tonight to celebrate my 2 month anniversary....

Hi Alan,
I'm going to have to stop reading the blog on an empty stomach. Every food shot makes me leave the computer to make a plate of "something". I think I've gained 5 lbs in the last 4 posts.

You can celebrate by grilling some fresh PNW fish on a hibachi!

You've eaten out enough this week.

(conscience speaking)

Happy anniversary - It has seem longer then 2 months to us back here in Estherville. I have not attended one play this summer, because my favorite actor is not in it.

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.
