That beat up Ford Focus has taken me over 100,000 miles around this country (90% being work miles, yeah? Right...) I am amazed this car is still kicking after all the hell I have put it through. Here's to another 100,000 miles wherever I decide to go. Thanks for keeping me somewhat safe, car.1d
lindsayblairbrownA little shy of 4000 miles, I'm home alive and well. I didn't have service a good portion of the drive back -- there are plenty of #latergrams to share! This was my first sunset in Seattle; it was an incredible view.6d
lindsayblairbrownAlisson inspires me to keep exploring. I always admired his move across the country a few years ago and how he continues to venture around the Golden State.
August 2008 marked the beginning of my time at Apple. Alisson was fairly new to the store, too. It didn't take long to realize we were both HHS graduates. Amazing to think you can share the halls for three years and barely speak a word to each other. Environment is such a factor in the relationships we make.
We became friends and spent a good amount of time running the registers. We were always smiling about something, even in the early hours of the morning on Black Friday.
When Alisson moved, I told him I wanted to make the drive out to SF to visit from New York. It was a dream I have not fulfilled just yet. When I moved to Austin, the idea came up again and I set a goal before the New Year. Here I am, writing you from a breakfast spot in North Bend, OR - first major stop since I left Alisson's apartment in San Francisco.
Alisson, you are a beautiful friend and I'm so thankful to have you in my life.2w
