The End of the Beginning is Near
For better or worse, I’ve finally left Ann Arbor. 7 of 8 semesters down, with no class for a solid 4 months. I left far more behind than I could have ever imagined…
I’m almost done sifting through the boxes of my life, deciding what I need, want, and can do without for the next couple weeks and months. Living, camping, and moving with a motorcycle is something everyone should be required to do at least once. It’s a delicate balance.
Tomorrow it begins. I have a few errands to run on the first leg, which will only take me to Chicago by tomorrow night. From then on, San Francisco is the limit, with a lifetime of adventures and sights in between; a map, humming german machinery, and an odometer that can talk your ear off my only constant companions.
Wish me luck.
