IMPORTANT NEW NOTES FROM JUSTIN:
Ah yes, I am finally back in Florida after 16 days home for the holidays. I'd been itching to get traveling again, and it feels good to be out here. Plus, it's WARM! I'm trying to keep life low key so I can catch up on the last two or three weeks of writing. Let me tell you, Florida is the place to do it! It's a pleasant place to be, as long as you don't mind the Christians everywhere.
So, is there no end to this journey? There definitely seems to be no end in sight. There are so many people to meet and enjoy, so many places to fall in love with, and so much to share and learn. So I continue to move with the winds; I continue to entice the winds to follow me.
So, one of the things about this experiment in love and motion and travel is that I have—against my will—assumed the challenging variable I like to call 'being broke'. So, that means I am doing this crazy trip while living, ahem, very frugally. For example, my slutty pants that used to be tight aren't tight anymore—that kind of frugal, you know?
So, what does this mean? Well, staying in a hotel every night is out of the question. I am looking for nice, fun people who can put me up for a few nights and really host me. This would involve me staying at your house for a few days, showing me a good time (since I like good times), feeding my stupid mouth (in an attempt to make my pants fit me again), and whatever general mischief we can get into. And, the best part is that I get to learn about your life and write about our times together! That is part of the experiment, see. I am meeting with people I've never met before and living some life with them. If you think it might be fun to host me for a day or two or three, email me at justingrace AT mac DOT com.
Please make sure to include your address and phone number in your email to me so I can be in touch!
I am especially looking for places to stay in the southeast USA and everywhere on the East Coast. I will be traveling all over the USA, though, so email me no matter where you are because I will probably come visit! Here are the places I will be in the next few weeks that I am still looking for a place to stay at:
• North/South Carolina
Please contact me ASAP if you want to hang out!
US Tour Day 104, Part 2: Technical Difficulties
My computer died. Again. This is the third iBook that I have destroyed in the last few years. The video chip delaminated from the mother board. This is a common issue if you are an idiot and keep your iBook in your backpack or let it flop around loose in the trunk of your car or sit it on top of everything in the trunk and close the trunk lid on it.
Note to self: Be more careful with the next computer.
So, my last few days of email is lost, as are some of my recent photographs. This is terrible and it will make it very hard to write about my journey. Grr.
But, I already ordered a new one—using Christmas money and by cashing in what pitiful amount was in my 401k account. Hopefully the iBook will arrive soon.
In other fun news, I will be printing photos from my US Tour and selling them as I travel. They will also be available for purchase online. I am very excited about this!
