The Journey Begins

Well hello out there! After two long weeks in Orange County, I’m heading out. During my time here I spent about a week and a half in bed with mono. I went to two movies with Scott Miller. I did some quality catching up with old high school friends. Buried my grandmother’s ashes. Got into numerous fights with my father. And revisited San Diego’s gay club scene with my ex-boyfriend.

Late tonight/early tomorrow morning I’ll start out on my trek. My mother and I will be in my car and we are caravanning with my father (who will be hauling the boat). We’re spending tomorrow in Vegas, where it’s supposed to be 107 degrees. Then we’re moving on to Denver where we will spend the 4th of July with my Uncle Jerry. Next we’re driving from Denver to Des Moines. I’m probably most excited about this part because I haven’t been to Des Moines since my other grandmother died 4 years ago. I used to spend my summers there growing up, so it’s gonna be kinda nostalgic. On the 7th, my mom and I are leaving my father in Iowa and attempting to drive the rest of the way to Maryland in one go. This should be my last post for a while because I don’t anticipate having any internet access until I get to my new house… but ya never know.

I’m gonna try to snag my dad’s digital camera so I can be like Gene and post pics of the trip when I get to the other side of the country. Wish me luck! ;)
