I Hit the Sea Glass Motherload!

Nothing makes one feel more like a local of the Pacific Northwest than finding an excellent sea glass beach.  It's like earning a secret that most gain after years of combing over beach after beach. And here I, miss van dwelling vagabond, find the mother-load of sea glass beaches (in, near, or somewhere around) Port Townsend, Washington. I can't wait to get working on these little treasures. I think I'll turn most of them into earrings.

One Year of Road Later

One year ago today I moved into my van and out of Omaha, Nebraska. I thought traveling around the USA for a year would change me and my life, I thought I would find my “place” in the world. Instead, I found I'm still me, just a little more interesting and the journey is my “place.” I never want to be stationary again.

To celebrate my anniversary, I bought all new LED lights to replace my old regular light bulbs. This way, maybe the next year of van dwelling will be even brighter.

Here are a few pictures of the places I have been. Come back one year from today, I'm sure I will have plenty more to show you...
