This week marks the beginning of my cross country drive, starting in this lovely state I grew up in, Connecticut, and ending up in, Los Angeles, California.
It’s exciting, scary, sad, and joyous all at the same time. For those of you who’ve moved away from family and close friends, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. For those that haven’t, I’m sure you’ve said plenty of good bye’s to those that have. There’re so many emotions that go along with a move like this.
Given the season we are currently in, I chose to take the southern route with the warmer climate for this time of year. I’ve done this type of trip before, but chose to take the middle and upper routes. This time around it will be my first time seeing areas of our country like New Mexico and Texas. I’ve also never been to the Grand Canyon, which is something I’m looking forward to as a highlight of this trip.
So, after weeks of preparation, delays, and shipping my life out to California in large boxes, I’ll be departing to venture into a new life.
But first, I want to invite you to join me from afar in the journey I’ll be capturing along the way.
Along for the ride with me will be my girlfriend, Catherine. She’ll also be helping me document our travels, as we have some great activities already planned.
So, from this point on and in the coming days, stay tuned to our Trailblazer Facebook page. There, I’ll be doing my best to keep everyone up on the real time traveling, activities, music, and destinations, we are about to embark on.
Check out the the route we are planning to take below and please leave any suggestions of activities, parks, or events you think we should check out along the way!
See you soon CT!
