I am in the midst of a driving across America, from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh. That’s right: see ya later, Los Angeles, I’m moving back to Pittsburgh!
Well, at the moment I am not driving: I am at RISE Coffee House in St. Louis, Missouri, where I have been for the last couple of nights (St. Louis is cool!). Today I will be driving to Louisville, Kentucky for the night, and then to my family’s farm outside Pittsburgh the day after that. I’ve been on the road for about a week, and it’s been a fantastic trip full of both adventures and quality solitude.
In the near future I will post more trip details along with my Insta-journal entries, a.k.a my approach to using Instagram in a less invasive way. It’s quite fun: I take photos during the day as things are happening, then post them in a stream-of-consciousness Instagram story all at once every day or two. Then they can be downloaded as videos for a nice record of the journey, and people seem to enjoy them!
To tide you over and for the sake of having a featured image for this post, here is a picture of me in front of Meteor Crater in Northern Arizona! This crater was created 50,000 years ago by a meteorite 150ft in diameter. It is one mile wide, 800 feet deep, and the best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth. Wowza!
