My Travels

 

 

In March of 2001, I quit my job in Portland, Oregon and embarked on an 18-month solo trip around the U.S., New Zealand, Australia, and again around the U.S.  Before leaving, I decided to create this website to keep folks posted on my whereabouts.  As it turned out, I probably spent more time updating my website during the journey than I did traveling!  Click on a map below to read about my adventures:
