2 coasts ... 1 HOPE

On January 6th 2009, I will be flying out to LA and walking back to Boston, raising money for cancer research. The route I'm taking should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. We will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary.

Catch a wave (or a couch)

So let me go back a day or so.....

I woke up Tuesday morning in Wickenburg, AZ and I headed to Peoria, AZ for my first CouchSurf . I saw this on top of a hill I was walking under, kinda

So the road was long and boring, have I said that before. I finally reached Sun City just before Peoria and the sun was off to my right starting to go down

My host for the night, John, meet up with me and we headed to his place. He showed be where I'd be sleeping and gave a quick tour. We decided we were going to grab a bite, so I jumped in the shower to wash off the desert dust. We went to this great sports bar, McDuffy's behind the apartment complex. The food was great and the conversation was as well.

John has been in the Air Force since he was 18. Born and raised in North Carolina and has lived in Korea, Germany and elsewhere. He works on fighter jets at the base there in Peoria. He has done and seem so much for a young guy. I was very impressed and happy to meet him. My stay was wonderful and John was a great host. Thank you for everything John, stay in touch.

Since surf's up the next few nights I can't resist.......
