2,370 miles. 4 days. Our journey from Wisconsin to Oregon.
The long route, but also the best route, to get from Point A to Point B. If you've never taken an extended roadtrip with people you love, do it.
We sold our cars and bought our Nissan Murano with only the bare necessities packed away in the back. I smile when I think about Oliver's expression the first time he saw Glacier National Park. We were warned about snow through the pass, but the light flurries made us Sconnies feel more at home. And the views confirmed our decision to relocate.
Over half of these shots were taken from the passenger seat with a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and 28-75mm f2.8 lens. We also used a recently purchased Canon Powershot G7x, which has been a fun little camera to use on a whim with surprisingly great results.
It seems like a blur now. I remember being surprised at how easy and pleasant it was, to drive cross-country with Oliver. This was our first palpable challenge of the transient lifestyle we chose for ourselves. The first moments of surrealism where the doubts and questions arose. And we made it with only one moderate squabble that happened somewhere between Kalispell, MT and Portland, OR. I don't even remember what it was about. I don't remember much of anything from that day actually.
Good thing we took these pictures.
