Ever had a morning where you woke up just before your alarm? Well, this wasn’t that kind of morning; yesterday was our last day on the east coast. 

We grew up there, made friends there, fell in love there, and a part of you doesn’t want to let go when one has to move.


Our first day began with a delicious breakfast at Break’n Eggs Creperie; a place we will sorely miss for their smoked salmon benedict. 

Afterwards, the task of purging the apartment began. A short 90 minutes later, we dropped off the keys, and after a brief stop to Target for some essentials we were on the road. 

Right now the weather looks questionable for pitching a tent, much less looking for fossils (which we had originally hoped to do).  

We’re missing people from home, but happy to get this incredible adventure started. Saying goodbye was like leaving a great relationship that had simply run its course; no one’s fault really, but life has a way of pulling you in the direction you’re supposed to go.
