2008 The Making Of A Unhealthy Relationship

The Mother Road, A Route 66 Adventure

USA | Thursday, 7 May 2015 | Views [203] | Scholarship Entry

Vlogging The American Dream
So cut to 2008
and a young man set of on an adventure a trip of a life time
With just a camera, note book and a tour guide book
I set of on a 6 week adventure to travel the greatest road
The most famous road
That has ever been
The Mother Road Route 66
As I boy I dreamed about travelling and visiting America
It's like we were separated at birth
I have this strange attraction with the place and
Every year when I return I feel like I'm home
So I flew to Chicago and from there
I picked up a car and travelled across
the mother road from east to west
54 towns and cities
21 states
30 motels
3 hotels
Planes trains and automobiles
With a few detours in between
I journaled every day of my adventure
Took pictures and made videos
Once we reached the end of the road and to LA
instead of flying back we decided to drive back across country but hitting all the other places I really wanted to visit
And seeing some amazing places meeting some amazing people
Who thanks to social media I still speak to to this day
There is far to many stories to tell
I wouldn't know which one to chose to tell on here
It would have to be
being drunk and stranded on St Patrick's day in Chicago in 2008
with refused entry onto the train to get to the airport
Losing my wallet in a taxi to the airport
losing the hire car at Chicgao O Hare International airport
Falling through busy
Landing in puddles
Forgetting where we parked the car
And that's just what I can remember of that day
