seven thousand one hundred and ten miles

The car did not die on us. Thankfully.

I was astonished we made it back 28 days on the dot.

Oh damn, it feels so good to be back in my own bed.

So. Why did we do this? Because we are (still) unemployed. Because we got laid off, and realized work was the biggest obligation for both of us…and when else to you get to have massive simultaneous chunks of time off together with your partner? Because we’ve never seen the Grand Canyon. Because our last major trip was hampered by deadlines. Because we miss a lot of people. Because even if we didn’t, couldn’t do all we wanted to do, see who all we wanted to see in this trip, attempting any of it at all was just insane enough to be interesting.

There’s all sorts of stunned post mortem talk going on over here. Roy and I keep looking at each other, shaking our heads and giggling. (did we really just do that?) We have a to do list for the trailer and the car and ourselves.  It’ll take a few days to chew on it all. Maybe I’ll post more, other random things. Or not.

Tomorrow, he and I are probably headed down to the Hunters Point Shipyard Open Studios. I’m getting an itch to make something with my hands again, and some inspiration wouldn’t hurt.

  1. Epic. I am consumed with envy. Welcome back.

  2. I’m glad you made it home without the car dying on you. It was lovely to see you both!
