I’m actually going on a road trip, out to see the Western National Parks. I was saving up for a down payment in DC, and when I started looking to buy, I was just like, y’know what, maybe I have some more exploring to do before I  truly settle …

I hope to hit Yellowstone, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Glacier, Cascades, Mount Hood, all the Utah parks, on the road until well into the fall. (If you’ve been to any of the NPs West of the Mississippi and have tips, let me know!) I’m going to camp as much as possible – yayyyyy nature!

My plan is to see as much as I can, take some time/space/freedom for myself, write, read. I don’t know where I will end up. I have a lot of creative writing I want to get out of me, and who knows what will come of the trip, y’know? 🙂 One of my best friends just moved to Denver, so I might crash there for a while once the weather gets too cold to camp. I’m also trying to get a writing residency in a tropical location for Jan/Feb.
