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.

On the road again....

Well, after a couple weeks of being a bum at home it's time to get back on the road and be a bum somewhere else. Wednesday I loaded everything back up, rubbed my St. Christopher (the patron saint of travelers) medallion that Barb from the theatre gave me before I left this spring, and started heading east.

I had a lot of things I wanted to do while I was home but I ended up not really getting many of them done. I was pretty unmotivated and the weather didn't cooperate real well either. It was either rainy, cold, windy, hot, humid, or some combination of those. The day I left was the nicest day by far and the type of weather I was hoping to have while back home. That late summer/early fall weather in the midwest when the humidity drops to bearable levels, the wind is calm, the sun is shining, and the temps are in the mid/upper 70's. Hmm, kind of sounds like the middle of summer in the Pacific northwest.....

Anyway, it was nice driving weather too and I got to see a lot of rural Iowa driving the back roads to the east. The crops are drying in the fields and waiting to be harvested; in my opinion the prettiest time of year in Iowa.

As I'm sure you've noticed I've been falling behind on my blog as well so I'll try to play catchup over the next couple days; so you can expect quite a few short ones to catch you up on some of the things that happened while I was back home.

I see no comments to your post. Well, what did you expect, it is after all a white minivan.

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.
