This is the beginning.
We talked about an epic coast to coast to coast road trip for some time now. That is, me (the "dad") and my son. I have been all over the country, as well as part of a few others, and I thought it would be good for us. He's 18, wrapping up his Frosh year in film at UNC-Wilmington. Up until now, our trip has only been talk.
In January, my life changed dramatically with a single event. Not to go into too much detail, but the old cliche of life being way too short came home to rest. So, we decided to do something about it.
Yesterday we picked up the slightly used (22,000 miles) car above. This is the first step. Next will be the cash for the actual trip, and then a couple of weeks off in June. If we can pull all these components together, we will have this in the bag. But there are many miles to go...
