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’.

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?!

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.

Three separate trips to Supai, and on the last I finally visited the elusive Hidden Falls- apparently the third time really is the charm! One of the least mentioned landmarks of the area, this secret gem is definitely worth the trek off the main trail. Looking down into the canyon from the cliffs above, you see no indication of this (aptly named) waterfall, which makes for a less crowded and even more alluring destination.
