Day One- New Horizons

 June 26, 2010

  Cruisin' along the 210 N. Entranced by the electric rhythm and hypnotic motion,we venture onward to Santa Barbara Ca for the ushering in of the changing season, the Summer Solstice Festival and Parade. It is a marvelous Saturday morning, nerves jittery with caffeine and anticipation, though curiously not tired even though we only had 3 hrs of sleep last night. All of the little tasks of final preparation were time consuming; our packs are huge and easily weigh sixty plus pounds each. We put so much thought into supplies, we almost reconsider abandoning some weight. Yet every item has been methodically selected for compactness and is deemed essential, resulting in comically bloated packs!
  It's an exciting new chapter in our lives. Gone now are the illusions of security and the futility of conformity, an opposition to established authority and meaningless servility. We reach out to other as yet unknown souls, allowing positivity and the Laws of Attraction to give our journey unique shape and substance.
  Thanks to our Family and Friends for all the advice, supplies, and assistance, that without would have made this trip impossible.
