On April 1, I’m going to do one of the most audacious things I’ve ever done: I’m getting in a car and spending the following few months touring America.
Why? I’ve lived in America my entire life, but I’ve seen very little of it. Heck, I’ve never spent more than two weeks at a time outside Connecticut. I want to see more, so I’m finally going to. I’m leaving Connecticut and driving all over. South, west, back north, back east, some of the places in the middle, big cities, small towns, touristy things… I want to see as much as I can. And I’m going to do a travel journal in comic form. The idea is in the rough phase right now, but I intend it for to be a combination travelogue, personal journal, and maybe even a series of interviews with people along the way. We’ll see. I’ve never done anything like this before, so we’re going to learn together. And yes, there will be more on this before I go.
How long will I be gone? The plan is “for a few months,” but what that means exactly is still a bit vague. I certainly can’t stay on the road forever, and even if I wanted to, I’m going to become an uncle for the first time this summer, so I’ll definitely be back in the northeast before then.
So yeah, that’s my audacious plan. I have never done anything like this before, and it’s going to be one heck of an adventure. And who knows? Maybe I’ll even see you on the road.
