Rachel introduces you to the Halseide family in Fort Collins, Colorado as they prepare to move to California to work at a summer camp.
Also, Yoyo recites some poetry.
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.
