Day 1: For me this trip is about learning to let go of control. There are no definite plans beyond a day or two out. My only goal is to make it back to LA in about 2 months. Beyond that, it’s an adventure that will lead me where it wants. It always amazes me how people suddenly become more friendly and open when you’re traveling. Something about being on the road puts you into a new state of mind. You’re detached from the ‘you’ that everyone back home knows. Maybe you move a little closer to your true self when you leave everything you know behind.
Yesterday I left LA in a rental car. All of my gear is packed and loaded. This photo is of a mountain range north of Sacramento, CA. It just sat there majestically, surrounded by endless fields. After taking this snapshot I continued through Reading and into Oregon for the night. I have to say, Northern California has to be one of the most beautiful places in the country. I can’t wait to go back and visit Mt. Shasta during the day.
