Home away from home away from...

I've finally landed in middle America.

2,500 miles ago I was in San Francisco. Oceans and big trees.

I thought I would need piles of books on tape to see me through the miles. Catch-as-catch-can NPR, a few new cds, and a healthy dose of silence were more than enough for four days. I meant to post every day on the road, but hotels in the sticks have gone from "internets?" to "sorry, wireless only." I've been lapped by the ruralites.

This is what I meant to show you: the american southwest along route 66, s
now in New Mexico, no snow in Illinois, and the western hemisphere's biggest cross. My next cross country drive will have built-in time for more exploration of the side-roads.

  1. Julia!

    I'm so happy to have shared this cross-country drive with you. I drove past/stopped when driving FROM my internship in south carolina to california. Oh the california I 40! I'm glad to have seen these beautiful sites from your view.

    I'm rooting for you back at home! Looking foward to experiencing more of life (and dessert!) on this blog.
