I think I'll name her Calico. My home for a little while. She's the color of the trees, a little out of shape, and has a pretty nice looking trunk. I'm excited to get to know her better.
I'm nervous for this trip. I'm completely elated. I'm ready for it. But, I'm also thinking, 'Am I making the right decision'? I guess we'll see. There's so much I don't know. I see lonely days ahead, but I also see days full of adventure and new friends. There's always balance in life, whether it's good or bad.
First stop, Smith Rock in Oregon. Then on to Portland, Ilwaco, Seattle, and Vancouver! I'm looking forward to meeting up with a couple of old friends along the way.
And thank you to my lovely, patient mom. Without her, this trip wouldn't be possible, my car wouldn't be as nifty, and my mindset wouldn't be as calm. Thank you!!! I love you!
