Ten days and 3,175 miles later, I’ve come to the end of my cross-country road trip. I’ve seen eleven states, three baseball games, and countless roads and highways. This journey has been a mixed bag of emotions, all together exciting and exhausting, grueling and relaxing. Through it all, I knew this day would come—I enjoy a flight back home leaving Ryan in Philadelphia to create a new one. Throughout this adventure with Ryan I’ve thought about our desire for what is familiar—what is comfortable—on a road trip that was inherently uncomfortable.
On Saturday, Ryan and I embarked on a 10 day road trip across the country, all the way to Philadelphia. One last adventure before Ryan starts grad school and I start working full-time at Logos. It has been a long and arduous journey but we’ve had a bunch of fun so far. You can follow our progress with my daily logs. When I’ve talked to others about our trip, they’re usually excited and they tell me they’ll pray for protection and a safe journey. Though safety and protection might be nice and comfortable, I’d rather have a trip full of significance, a trip that makes for a good story.
