and then finally arriving on August 14 in Chesterfield, NJ to sleep in a real (clean) bed at my moms house before heading back to Cape May, NJ.
Super weird arriving back at the place it all started in.

Really only one word to describe everything i've seen and experienced during a month and a half of seeing America...Epic.


  1. This must have been one amazing trip! Did you hike the Grand Canyon? I am thinking about planning a hike to the bottom for next summer, and I would love any advice you could offer.

  2. Holla, it's like the end of 2oo1 Space Odessy... minus the creepy fetus at the end!

  3. I left a little something for you on my Urbanity blog!
