This is the first post! I really hate it when the first person logs onto a blog article and has to write "FIRST!" in the comments section. Please don't do it. Actually, if you are going to take the time to even view this thing, then do whatever you want to do.
I am currently sitting at a nice little cafe, enjoying a hummus pita and salad, listening to the establishment's mix of arab techno and indian Bollywood wails, ever so often glancing at the left-over hippie with the Mickey Mouse backpack and picking his toes. No, I am not in the middle of some foreign land, but San Rafael, CA -- my hometown. Granted, some may identify this county seat as the former, but I am taking a few moments to break away from my homework (Financial Analysis -- Liquidy Ratios, Net Present Value, bla, bla bla) to give this travel blog I started last month a whirl. I have not even made this blog public, so it's not like I expect anyone to read it. This is more of a test drive, and an opportunity to put some thoughts I have already developed into print (ones n zeros, eh, whatever).
This trip is still a primary focus of mine. Ever since this idiotic idea popped into my head this winter, I have spend many a useless free moments thinking about where I want to go, how I am going to pull it off, as well as telling any willing mind about my journey. No one seems to think it's as cool as I do. =)Anyway, at this time, the preliminary itinerary will be (so people can stop asking me how I am going to do this in only 8 days):
Day 1 Friday July 31, 2009 San Rafael, CA - Carson City, NV 4hrs 200miDay 2 Saturday August 1, 2009 Carson City, NV - Salt Lake City, NV 8hrs 540miDay 3 Sunday August 2, 2009 Salt Lake City, NV - Denver, CO 9hrs 600miDay 4* Monday August 3, 2009 Denver, CO - Ft.

Easy as that. I need to stop now, because the more I am looking at that, the more I want to say, "".
