In 2007 I began living out of my backpack and hitchhiking around.

Typical Arizona to SoCal to NorCal Hitchhiking Trip

We found ourselves waking up at my friend's house in Flagstaff, ready for the endless road once again.

California possessed the primary gravitation, particularly Chico, for starters. I'd won a contest some months ago to go to Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp, myself, a friend and our fellow campers had an amazing time at the brewery which culminated in our brewing a beer of our choosing, the fruits of which were soon to enjoyed. I wanted to be in California to taste as much of this brew as possible, so goes this section of the road to get there.

Utah Camping and Secret Hardware Brewery

We hitched four rides out of Vail before getting dropped off at a brewery to take a break. Back on the highway a police officer smelled beer on Marilyn's breath and made some threat about a DUI, it seemed nonsensical, but all he really wanted was for us to get off the road.

My friend dropped us off in a good spot in Memphis to start hitchhiking, off we went with thumbs blazing, Boulder, Colorado as our new target.

New Adventure with Marilyn Begins in Memphis and New Orleans

For Marilyn the summer of freedom and new experiences had her longing for more, a particularly cold winter season back at work hit her from the other angle, pushing her further towards the pull from the road.

I was happy to link back up with her, we'd been finding ways to cross paths anyways ever since she got back to Indiana after the summer. During this cold month of February I'd tucked away in a friend's house in Michigan while he was away, an isolated marathon writing session that I was now ready to snap out of.
