I’ve set a date for my departure to my Epic trip. I’m leaving as close to June first as possible, give or take a day or two. Money or no, ready or not I’m going. If I have to walk barefoot and naked with nothing but my dog and some dog food to get out of here I will. Of course, I’ll have money, shoes and clothes. However, my worry is where I will go.
Finding a hostel that will let me do work exchange and have a dog will be tricky tricky. Most hostels don’t allow guests with dogs at all. While Comet is a service dog and I could just show up with him without mentioning him at all when applying for a work exchange position, that would be terrible form. Besides, the hostel could make up another reason to kick me out even if they cannot legally reject a service dog.
I want to start in the mountain region of the US. Although, I don’t want to go to Colorado. Nothing against Colorado but I have family there. They might insist I visit and two of those family members are people to which I am not speaking. Besides, I want to start closer to the west coast and make my way over. I’m thinking Montana or Utah. This one hostel in Montana has propane lamps. I want to light propane lamps. I also really want to be out in the country or a small town. I’m so tired of the city. I never thought I would say that but I loved Birch Bay. I miss Birch Bay. *sniff*
Anyway, if I need to camp I will camp. That could be fun too. They make these tiny tents for one person and some gear. Comet counts as gear. Just will have to find a camping site with wifi I guess. I can’t wait to take off. Wanderlust is a powerful thing.
Oh and look! Zombie Comet
