Rachel and Bus

Although insecurities abound, I am about to post my first introductory video blog (I prefer to call them “micro-docs”, because it sounds less like I’m an A.D.D. preteen with a cam-quarter and a hanging sheet).

Tonight I’m heading out on a Greyhound bus.  I’m about to purchase a Greyhound Discovery Pass, which, for $500, will let me get on and off anywhere in North America for two months, except for Alaska and Newfoundland.  While I realize Newfoundland is in the ocean, I’m not sure why they exclude Alaska.

I’ll be trying to “micro-document” every day of my trip, but don’t expect to see those videos for some time.  I want to be able to upload them consistently, and I can’t count on having wi-fi everywhere I go.  To avoid the stress of expectations (even if they’re only my own expectations), I’m going to hold off on the uploads until I can do it daily.  Which means they might not start flowing in for two months.

Enjoy. …I hope for future blogs to not be nearly as cheesy.  My eyebrows seem to have a mind of their own.

The beginning of this trip is dedicated to friend and fellow adventure seeker, Paul Quarrington, who went on his final adventure Jan 21, 2010. Here’s to the next chapter, Q-Tip.

    Hey lady – thank you for being our adventurer _ know that will be living vicariously through your eyes (though you might have to do something about the eyebrows, feels kind a wierd, looking out under those particular eyebrows, what with their mind-control functions and all, but I digress … have an interesting time, don’t be stingy with the uploads, and look forward to your missives.

    Nice work!

    The facial comedy in your intro is top notch. Don’t you dare hold back on that. Seriously. Be the living cartoon, you, and have fun.
