Well I lost my path but I found my way…
In the post prior to this, I gave an overview of my scenic road trip from Las Vegas to West Virginia. This post is meant to be more informative, providing further details about the trip itself, apps I found helpful, tips, etc. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Continue reading
Country Roads, take me home…
They certainly did. Country roads, mountain roads, desert roads, highways…I’ve traveled a great deal of roads over the last few weeks. 3800 miles of them to be precise- all to make my way back to Jefferson County, West Virginia.
Four days left of work.
Eleven days left in Vegas.
Safe to say, the final countdown is ON. I knew this time would come, yet somehow (not surprisingly) I’m still feeling completely unprepared for it. Continue reading
Tucked away in California’s corner of the Sonoran Desert lies Slab City, aka ‘The Slabs’ – frequently referred to as ‘the last free place in America’.
Now, I haven’t visited enough of America to back that statement up with facts… but based on my recent visit, I would venture to say it’s a pretty accurate description. Continue reading
Sometimes I try to avoid the over-populated touristy spots- the locations you see plastered all over Instagram, thousands of similar pictures showing the same (admittedly awesome) waterfall or mountain or sandstone arch.
Other times, I give in and decide to visit those places myself- and typically, they don’t disappoint. I’ve decided some destinations are popular for good reason– because they’re really flipping cool to see in person! Continue reading
75,000 miles and countless epic adventures together, and tonight was the night I said goodbye to my beloved Subaru Forrester. After one final road trip of course…
In precisely 3 months I plan on leaving Vegas to head back east; in 6 months, I intend to start my road trip around the country living in my van. (March 1st and June 1st to be specific). How is this happening already?!
The realization that time is ticking away is nothing new to me. This entire year feels like it has flown by, days and weeks blurring together as each new month begins. In some aspects this is a good thing- it means I am getting closer to seeing my friends and family back home, and closer to setting off on a journey that a few years ago I deemed impossible. An intangible dream that is almost materialized, who wouldn’t be siked to make that happen? Continue reading
Hot Springs are definitely one of the most fascinating natural gems I’ve experienced out west (so far). There’s something quite magical about hanging out in a hot tub that comes directly from the earth. As a bonus, apparently soaking in the mineral-rich water is considered highly beneficial for a variety of ailments and pains (think of it as a mineral bath soak, just outside of your bathtub). Arizona Hot Springs has slowly become a favorite destination of mine – for many reasons- one of them being the landscape surrounding the area. Is there anything cooler than hot springs hiding inside of a slot canyon? (pun slightly intended..)
Beat the heat of Vegas by driving out to Nelson’s Landing and cooling off in the Colorado River! Bring your favorite pool float and drift around in a calm bay area, or get your adrenaline pumping with this area’s most prominent attraction- tons of rocky cliffs perfectly positioned by the waters edge, offering endless opportunities for some quality cliff jumping.
