LA Roadtrip: Day 1

8:00am Monday

I planned to leave at 8:00am on Monday morning. This, however, was delayed do to the fact that I had not yet packed my car. My amazing father came all the way down from Maine to be at my apartment for 8:00. 

I realized that I can only get done what I can get done.

"This is an adventure. Stop making so many damn rules."

I got on the road at 12:00pm on the dot. This was my view for the next 3-4 hours until I hit CT/NY

"How many podcasts can I listen to before I go mad?"

The rain started at 5:00pm and never really stopped from there. I got really lucky, as the storms were much worse 200mi south.

7:00pm

Still driving and started to get really tired around 7:00pm. Cranked up some tunes and who better than JAY Z to get the blood moving again

9:00pm

I was in the home stretch and needed a "pick me up"... but not this kind. Grabbed some awesome beef jerky and dropped the hammer until I arrived at 11:39pm in Yorktown, VA. 

Side note: Beef Jerky has a cult following in rest stops. There was literally a "Meat Shrine" built into an entire aisle of jerky.

Great first day! Total time on the road 11h39m. 

On to the next.
