The time has come to say goodbye to the West Coast.
I've been out here since September, and made more friends and more memories than I can fit into a simple blog post. More than a few might well end up as characters and stories one day. Have a beer out with me one night, and perhaps I'll share some.
I'm really looking forward to being home for a while, and to starting my next three-month adventure stint in Washington, D.C.
I wonder what new stories the nation's capitol will present? Only time will tell.
I'm starting the cross-country drive in the next few minutes. A middle of the night departure to avoid LA and Vegas traffic (if I'm lucky), stop tonight in Boulder, CO, then on to St. Louis day 2, and home in Raleigh, NC Saturday night. I feel like a main character setting off on a quest.
A wise hobbit once said: It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and you never know where you might be swept off to.
Let's find out, shall we?
