Very short post to just give an update of where we are, what we're up to, and where this blog is going. We are currently hanging out in San Diego for a month - we've gotten pretty fat (at least I have) and out-of-shape (again, more me) since we've been road-tripping. Traveling for hours a day in a car, eating fast food and chips isn't the best for your health. So, we're going to spend a month here, cooking for ourselves, working out and brushing up on skills we'll need when we interview for jobs. We rented a fully furnished apartment right in the heart of the Gaslamp District in downtown and we'll be here until mid-November.
So far San Diego has been the first place that feels right. It's a great mix of urban and laid-back. Is it because we know we're here for a month so nothing's rushed? Maybe. We'll see how we feel in a month. We really liked Denver, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, and LA (I did NOT like driving in LA. I consider myself a good driver, and LA made me feel like a bad driver. The traffic was obscene. OBSCENE.), and are looking forward to checking out Austin once we leave San Diego.
As for the blog, I have a bunch of posts written but need to add pictures to them. I'll be posting them regularly, and hopefully will be all caught up in a few weeks - only to get behind for the rest of the trip, I'm sure :). We've so far driven over 7500 miles and have seen amazing things in this country. While we're really looking forward to our month in San Diego, it's crazy to think that we're in the home stretch.
So keep checking in and reading, please. We're getting there, I promise!
