Rapists, Tomatoes & The Importance of Booking Ahead

Las Vegas had set my plans back by two days, and I desperately needed to make up time if I was going to hit Seattle*.

The plan was to drop Chris and Corey back into Simi Valley, then take the first highway north. I’d stay at a cheap motel when I got sick of driving then head to San Francisco the next day.

Adventure: It’s the feeling of driving out of a place you’ve never been to before, towards a destination you haven’t decided on yet. It’s having no one to see and no particular time to be wherever it is your going – you’re just down for whatever. That’s the feeling, and it’s good. Intoxicatingly good… especially when you’re alone.
