Total Distance for today: 0
Total Distance for Trip: approx. 233 miles
STATUS: in Baltimore, arranging opportunities ahead


Monday, I woke up, and said, “Enough!” The RV needed an over-hall, so I set-out to dump the sewage tank, buy some parts to fix said sewage tank (more like strap it on, so it won’t fall off!), fill up with H20, refill the propane, do an absurd amount of laundry, and clean the dishes… Ah, the joys of RV’ing! You guys seriously need to watch “RV” with Robbin Williams. His experiences are really just a slight exaggeration of what it can really be like, or maybe our experiences are a slight exaggeration of what it should really be like!

On a more interesting note: I was able to couch surf with my new friends Vic and Joanna in Northern Baltimore Monday night. Their pretty awesome people, and Joanna makes some mean gravy biscuits! It was pretty cool talking to some other young people who also have some vagabonding interests. Vic actually studied in Prague and had some pretty incredible experiences there. Thanks guys for a great time! It was some much needed social interaction. Couch Surfing is definitely panning out as a great way to make real connections with cool people along my way. Dillon and I have talked, and we think I need to try to take an entire month where I basically don’t see him or the RV, because I am Couch Surfing the entire time. I’ll keep you in the loop as that progresses.

Quick question: Does anyone have any experience using Four Square via. text message? Better yet: Does anyone have any experience using it with WordPress? I’m trying to set something up that will allow me to very easily keep you guys updated about my location, but it doesn’t seem to be working yet.
