A Visual Journey Through The American West

Driving our final stretch back home to Chicago, I couldn’t help reflect on all the amazing things that happened on this trip. It’s certainly been an adventure, one that I’ll never forget! One month on the road, 13 states visited, 7000+ miles driven and to show for it, I’ve learned a few truths:
1) There is Thai food, everywhere. Everywhere.
2) I love the hotel life; I love life on the road. 
3) Someone needs to remaster all of Mitch Hedberg’s comedy recordings.
3.5) Gabriel Iglesias is much funnier when heard and not seen. Impersonations that are off the chain. Watch out, Michael Winslow.  
4) The French certainly love to vacation in America. 
5) Sprint is the worst. THE WORST. 
6) One’s audio book is only as good as one’s aux cable will allow it to be. 
7) The US is truly magnificent and I will never again take it for granted. 
Love,

Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running; that’s the way to live.

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Aint life unkind?

Why must this journey come to an end? 

It’s so nice to be missed! Picking up the P’s in Minnesota allowed us to hang with the Schinzel fam once again and relay our previous adventures. We are forever grateful to them for hosting the P’s at Minnesota ‘summer camp.’ Frank buffed up, and had a summer romance with Ruby, the Lab. Lola is now quite adept at truffle hunting and earned a merit badge in barking. #proudparents

Operation whittle the middle: drive through Nebraska and Iowa with the quickness. No offense to our plains brethren, but we have a schedule to keep and we’re already behind!

After spending a fun day with our friend Trav, we journeyed to the Highlands hood for a delish meal at Linger with the lovely Tiff and Chad. You can even see the Rockies game from their (soon to be) new balcony.
