Welcome to LA

Nothing eventual happened on the plane ride to LA. Usually I listen to music, read a book, or nap. But this flight, I didn’t do any of that. I just starred out at the window or at the seat back in front of me. I guess I just have a lot of things on my mind.

It didn’t really dawn on me until I saw the Rockies what exactly I was doing. By most standards what I did would seem pretty irrational. I had a good job where I enjoyed mostly what I did. I had a nice apartment in DC and had a comfortable life.

Now all I have with me is all that I have on my back – A tent, a sleeping pad, a sleeping bag, a jacket, a rain jacket, a pair of shorts, a pair of pants, 7 pairs of boxers, 4 T-shirts, and three pairs of socks. Of course, I also have other various camping items. They say that simplifying your life is hardest thing to do. Lets see if I can do it over the next three months. I am really excited for this new adventure and want to thank everyone for their best wishes.

Another funny story…. I drank a ton of water on the flight and every time I went to the bathroom, the same guy was in the back talking to the stewardess. Granted he had a different beer in his hand every time. Good for him.
