Cross Country Road Trip 2013

EJ: "Yo dude, how sick would it be to drive cross country back from school at the end of the year?"
Arno: "Yeah, that'd be awesome."

This past winter break I raised the idea, semi-jokingly, to my good friend Arno (Barnyard) of driving cross country back from college at the end of the school year. To actually pull this off, there were many logistical obstacles that had to be overcome, least of which was finding a car.
Nevertheless, after months of planning everything came together. A friend knew someone who was moving to San Francisco around the time we were hoping to do the trip and who needed her car driven. It turned out our friends Isaac (Sean) and Tzvi (Jax) were finishing their first year at Brandeis University the same day I was finishing my first year at Georgetown. Arno had finished his first year at University of British Columbia in Vancouver a couple weeks earlier. My grandparents, as well as Tzvi's aunt happened to live a half hour away from where the car needed to be picked up, meaning we could spend the night at these places after finishing our last finals, and get an early start the next morning. All the logistics had lined up perfectly, but this was just the beginning.
