But seriously, I bought a train ticket the other night. I am leaving in 2 weeks, landing in Reno, NV, in late October. Christine and I will visit some friends, bike around Lake Tahoe, go all cannibal-style through Donner Pass and then high-tail it to NorCal. Right now the plan ends with us getting to the Arcata-Eureka area around the first of November.

I am trying to convince Humboldt State University that they need me to teach their populace to sail. They do need me, they just don't know it yet. Maybe try my hand in a bike shop? Who knows. Not me.
|I'm obviously a hard working sailing instructor|
Its not that they are necessarily wrong; in fact they are probably right. Its just that at this point in my life, I feel like I need to do something, anything, to jump start my existence. New Jersey is great, but not really intellectually challenging or stimulating. If I start with that premise, there isn't really a smart way to move 3000 miles away. At some point, I just have to jump....
So here goes. In 2 weeks I will leap without knowing exactly where my landing is. It might be a long free-fall.
Here are some pictures from the summer:
