Even though I started this leg of my trip in Boulder, I really just finished a road trip from one end of the country to the other. California to Vermont. I drove over 5,000 miles and saw parts of the country I have never seen before. It really has been an epic f*cking journey!
Thank you to those who hosted me during my travels! Mr. Dennis Southward, Heather Lloyd, Marcelle and Greg Gilkerson, Liz and Tim, and Tasha and Gerhard-you are the best!!!!
A few notes from the road:
- The I70 between Colorado and Missouri has very little except for adult sex shops and religious signage. Makes you wonder.
- Did you know that Kansas is the sunflower state? It’s pretty in the summer and fall. According to my friend, it’s pretty depressing in the winter. I can imagine. However, the cheapest gas in the country-probably all year round. Pros and cons.
- I really like Columbus Ohio. Have you been? Lots of cobblestone type streets and green trees.
- Driving by yourself gets really old.
And now, on to the next adventure!
The lovely house of Dennis in Boulder who hosted me multiple times this year, thank you!
I left Boulder on September 12th and it was 37 degrees
Here I go, Route 70 for daaaaays!
Oh Kansas, Not much doin, but glad I got to see it.
Cheapest gas I have seen in at least 20 years.
