The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 6

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California.

This day was the weirdest one for me yet. I wasn’t just “visiting” my friends and family, this time I was moving west. I’d been to Portland, saw friends both old and new, then went to Boston to spend some leisurely time with even more, and then saw my family in Connecticut, but this was the first day I had no more visits. It was do or die.

I thought about this notion in the shower this morning. I woke up to see the kids off for once (instead of sleeping well past their departure times). I set my alarm for six, and wouldn’t you know it? I woke up!

The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 4

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California.

Day Four of the trip, and Day Two in Connecticut, I awoke way too late. Kylie and Connor had been up for five hours and she was ready to grocery shop.

Off we went to the WALMART NEIGHBORHOOD GROCERY?! That’s a thing? Yes, Wal-Mart had some stores where it was identical to a Hannaford or Stop and Shop; no department store items, just grocery.Read More »

The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 3

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California.

I woke up early today, 6AM, to ensure I had enough time to meet my Aunt and Uncle in Connecticut. We planned on the Lucky Cup Restaurant for breakfast at 9AM. It only took two hours from Boston, but I wanted to make sure that I had some extra time, in order not to rush.Read More »

The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 1

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California. I put this name up there as a tentative placeholder until I could come up with a cooler name, but there isn’t a more apt title to describe my journey. When everything in my life told me I couldn’t, I simply refused to listen. And so, I begin my chronicle of the excursion across the United States.

Wow, the United States. I’ve been to only a handful of them, and I find my number unsettling, like a low number of sexual partners in your early 20s, for the number doesn’t really mean anything, but man, sometimes you wish it was higher. “If I could only live more!”
