The journey has now begun. I seem to have everything set up and ready to leave. I have my backpack of clothing, one for the laptop and other writing utensils and finally some blankets. I found myself wanting to take more clothing than necessary, but I forced myself to cut down. After all, I only had four tops and three pairs of pants/shorts on a 2.5 week trip to Central America...however considering that I don't know if I'll be sent northward or southward, I had to cover as many bases as possible.

My first stop is Atlantic City. With me are the wages from working the past two weeks. If I win money, then I can allow myself to actually stay in decent hotels/lodges along the way. However, if I lose or remain even, then I should sleep in my car at night. And if all else fails, then at least I can get a free breakfast out of my comp dollars. Furthermore, some free alcohol ;) I should also be able to find some crazy individual to send me toward an interesting destination.

Right now I still need to find some way to download pictures to my laptop and also I need an oil change. So at some point during the journey, I'll have to make those decisions for myself. But the safety of my car is in one of the main guidelines and also logging the journey does have priority for any spectators.

I just hope this journey isn't for bust.

Hasta la proxima.
