"All of us,' he said, 'have hopes of being poet, artist, discoverer, philosopher, scientist; of possessing the attributes of all these simultaneously. Few are permitted to achieve any of them in daily life. But in travel we attain them all. Then we have our day of glory, when all our dreams come true, when we can be anything we like, as long as we like, and, when we are tired of it, pull up stakes and move on. Travel -- the solitude of the mountains, the emptiness of the desert, the delicacy of the minaret; eternal change, limitless contrast, unending variety.' "
Robert Edison Fulton Jr. (One Man Caravan)

I started this blog for the purpose of shits and giggles a long time ago, and i think I’ve come a long way from where I was until around year ago. I’m easy to admit that I’ve been living through false ego’s, going out of my way to show off who I could be compared to who I really am. In other words I played actor quite a lot. Things I’ve written about in the past have just been things I’ve written just to get a few laughs out of people, and for some time there were a lot of people into it, but writing gonzo blog entries isn’t something I aspire to do anymore, and many of my followers can see that the the stuff I’ve been writing has lost its value compared to the stuff I’ve written in the past.

Things are different now, I am who I am, and this is what it is.

I’ve deleted my other blogs, I don’t plan on writing about fashion anymore, I like to dress nice but it’s not something I’m into anymore. Since trend replaced fashion, (you can argue with me that fashion was always trend, there are more than singular perspectives to things and we each see different), I just haven’t been into it. I still enjoy style, but style isn’t something everyone has, well maybe style is easily acquirable if we all shop at h&m for a week. …. Anyways this is something im getting lost In, I’m just not into it anymore, maybe one day ill write about why that is with a cleaner thought on the subject

I’m going to be changing this blog around completely, I’m still keeping up old posts and leaving the name the same, only difference is I’m going to be writing about something else, I’m going to use it to keep track of my goal for the year.

I’ve been thinking adventurous lately; being stuck in one place for too long drowns me and I’m so hungry for experience. Most of you know that I’ve been planning a trip to drive down to Malibu in a van for some time now; I’ve just always ended up getting caught in something else. It’s been a busy year for me; I’ve lived in Turkey for a quarter of the year, and in Vancouver for another couple of months. I was in Turkey again this summer and just come back to Ontario around 3 weeks ago. I’ll be the first to admit I was theoretically more motivated than I’ve actually been looking for a job, but my goal is still in its place, I’ve just been having a good time and shaking off the last couple of months.

This is a reason on its own that I’m starting this new blog.

So here it goes;

The van is out of the picture, I’m buying a motorcycle, I plan on having it on the road during spring, I want to get comfortable with it, and comes summer I’m riding out to San Francisco. I haven’t yet planned the specifics of the trip yet, I’m thinking about a couple of weeks on the road, but who knows?

I figure instead of the comforts of sleeping in a van, I’ll be staying in hostels and at campsites, which are all the best places to meet people, and get into adventures.

I want to meet as many people as I can, and experience.

Experience, experience, experience!

Nom nom nom!!!!

I’m going to keep 2 entries for this trip, the getting started, which is going to cover, everything from finding a job to saving up for a starter bike, to covering all the bits and details of the trip.

And the actual trip itself, which is going to take place around June 2011

I haven’t planed out the route I’m taking yet, but I’m thinking its going to be something along the lines of driving down south through the southern states to California, than driving up to Vancouver, and from there taking the scenic route through Canada back to Ontario. But that’s just the thought I have in mind right now, this can all change depending on how much outdoor life network I watch J

So here is the Goal:

  1. Find a job (planning on serving/ bartending) work as much as I can for the next few months.
  2. Start hunting for Motorcycles around March, April.
  3. Get the bike on the road.
  4. Wait for summer heat.

I plan on spending as little money as I can for accommodations, mostly camping, hostels, and the generosity of strangers.

…I understand, to some people this sounds like torture. But I feel it calling for me.

I'm looking forward to all questions and comments if anyone actually follows this blog lol :)
