Ad-VAN-ture. Tue, Jan 09, 2018
I moved to California in a van that I bought for $900 packed with only the essentials: my bed, motorcycle, collection of records, and some clothes. I did not have a job lined up, I only knew where I'd be living, and although it was unorthodox it was one of the greatest times of my life. Along the 3000 mile journey I stopped at Shawnee National Forest (IL) which spans 289,000 acres, Kansas City (KS) to watch the Royals beat the Rays, Idaho Springs (CO) the location where this photo was taken!, Moab (UT) where I saw some of the most unique rock structures in the world, and Yosemite National Park (CA) which needs no explanation, you just need to go there to see the valley for yourself.
Not only do road trips take you to new places, but there are also many unexpected experiences along the way. I hope this inspires you to get out and take a road trip of your own, whether it be 50 miles down the road or 3000 across the country.
