A Travelers perspective...

I am quite certain many of you have wondered why I was going across country.  Well it all started a few years ago, when I was talking to my friend Tori.  She felt like she needed to go somewhere new. I jokingly told her move to California.  Little did I know that the seed I planted would bloom into a seedling.  

She told me she wanted to move out here, and in the midst of opposition from family and friends, she made the giant leap cross country.  I volunteered to help her drive from Erie, PA to LA.  ( I had no idea what I was getting myself into! haha)

Seriously, it was a wonderful experience.. in spite of the both of us wanting to kill each other after being in the car 13 hours for 3 days.

Here are some photos for you to see what we saw. AND I know many of you wanted our route to come through your city, but we had a time limit.  Which was kind of a bummer! She had to be here by today, September 28th.  She is going to school here.

I flew from LA to Hartford, CT and drove Imaginary Road, Vermont - My journey started here.  
I flew from Hartford to Cleveland, and Tori picked me up and we drove to Erie, PA     

We drove from Erie, PA to Iowa in 11 hours the first day.                            
We drove from Iowa to Denver, CO. 13 hours in the car! GAAA!  We went through Nebraska.
We ended up in Denver, CO on Sunday Evening.  CRAZY drive.   
We woke up everyday at 3:30am to be on the road by 4 - 4:30am. We drove from Denver to Southern Utah.    

We woke up Tuesday morning at 3:30am, and drove to California in about 6 hours.                                                        

Thanks for coming on the journey with me and playing "Where I am now" it was fun to see who guessed where I was.  Thanks for your support as well.  

I wish you all a great week.. and hope that you will all be successful in whatever you pursue.  

Now I really need to get something done around here!  

More to come...
