OklahomaThe last month has brought me roughly 10,000 miles of travel. Maybe I'm exaggerating (though maybe I'm not) and anyway, that's how it felt so it doesn't really matter. August also brought much fewer home-cooked meals than I am accustomed to, and too many bathroom breaks in convenient stores and aboard trains. Despite my lack of friends/family/acquaintances, I've enjoyed the companionship of C the most. And now I'm in the business of making my new home just that: my new home. I'm committing. Getting comfortable. Testing grocery stores and laundromats.
Above is a glimpse at the first 2,000+ miles, made by automobile with gas prices at their peak, and with a musical backrop of mix CDs compiled by our totally awesome friends who stocked us up for the trip---and who also do a good job of keeping us cool, and making us happy. (You guys are the best.)
The last stop was Virginia, where I was too busy/excited/relieved to take even one passenger seat photo. But here we are.
