I havent’ posted a blog in quite a while.  Not since I posted some whining comment about how undervalued I feel in society.  Oh woe is me. 

I guess I was just feeling the nerves of going on this big adventure.  I arrived in the UK nearly three weeks ago. The plan being to get myself on some sort of adventure.  I knew I wanted to go to the States.  But I hadn’t worked out a plan.

I guess I still havent.

I am sitting in the airport right now. Waiting for my first of quite a few flights.  I will be going to Amsterdam this evening.  Spend the day walking around the museums and galleries. I spent a good bit of time over here 20 years ago when I finished school.  Im going to visit an old (she isn’t old) school friend in Rotterdam who is part of the team of architects working on the new airport.  

I fly into Los Angeles on Tuesday.  From there, I guess I dont realy have much of a plan.  I have rented a car.  In a cliched way, I think its a mustang convertible (for the first three days at least) then I will start to budget quite heavily and see how far my limited funds will carry me.

I wil be doing one thing that I must admit to being very excited about.  I have rented a brand new RV.  One of those big american things. I pick it up from the factory where it has been made.  It is brand new. Nobody has used it before. My job is to then get it to Las Vegas in nine days.  Should be a blast.  I havent a clue what kind of weather I can or will be able to expect.  It  could vary from fairly warm to freezing cold with blizzards.  im hoping not.  But it should see me driving across the country and visiting a lot of old friends.

This folks is my mid life crisis.

I cannot wait.

One thought on “So this is actually happening. Shitting myself now.

  1. Sounds like a good way to spend a mid life crisis. I always think it’s best to have these things happen early on in ones life. You don’t want to be the sad creepy old guy at the bar or sad creepy old guy in teen trend outfits at the bar…no no no, I can tell you that’s a girls worst nightmare.

    Also wise words from teen sensation Bruno Mars

    ‘Oh, you know, you know, you know, I’d never ask you to change
    If perfect’s what you’re searching for then just stay the same
    So, don’t even bother asking if you look ok
    You know I’ll say….

    ‘ When I see your faaaaaaaace, there’s not a thing that I would change
    Cause you’re amazinggggg, just the way you aaaaaaare
    And when you smiiiiiiiile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
    Because girl you’re amazingggggg, just the way you are(yeah)’
    Co worker playing this song on repeat.

    Enjoy!
