Despite yet another long drive from Las Cruces to Las Vegas, and although we finally arrived at our final destination, there was no time to relax. I only had two days for unloading the truck and exploring Vegas with my parents before I would be flying back to Key West. Day 5 – Unloading The Truck The next morning we… Read more →

EP Shadows Tour Wrapped Up – Key West suprise
As Gustaff and I parted ways on April 23rd in Florence, Colorado I couldn’t help but feel grateful for this unique experience in my life. I never could have imagined that one day I would be traveling around the United States playing guitar and sharing my music for crowds of all kinds. I left Key West early February not sure what… Read more →
Salt Lake City, Utah – Reunion with friends!
The drive through south Montana and Idaho to Utah was spectacular. Gustaff and I made sure to stop when we saw anything worth soaking in. Our favorite was this frozen lake in Idaho called Henrys Lake. We arrived at our destination after daylight once again, but this time we were greeted with friends of Gustaff’s whom he hadn’t seen since before… Read more →
Livingston, Montana – Finding Hope in Tragedy
On April 11th Gustaff, my parents, and I set off on a long drive towards Livingston, Montana. The speed limit was high and the roads were winding. We made a few stops for some wonderful views and a lot of pee breaks (we were well hydrated), and this caused us to spend a lot of time driving after daylight. We… Read more →
Washington State – Visitors from Canada!
For the first time in as long as I can remember I was having a bad allergic reaction to, I’m guessing, all the pollen in the air. So when we arrived on April 6th in Gig Harbor, Washington, just outside of Tacoma, I went straight to bed for an hour long nap. I woke up feeling a bit better, but… Read more →
California – We made it to the west!
Gustaff and I made it to California at 2:00 in the morning on March 26th, 18 hours after leaving Flagstaff the day before. On our way there we had a lunch break in Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel with a pit stop on the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to see the famous Hoover Dam. From there we b-lined it… Read more →
Arizona – Pleasantly surprised.
Our first stop in Arizona was at the Native American Baha’i Institute (NABI) in the Navajo Nation. We only got to spend one night there, but it was a wonderful night spent with some locals, staff at NABI, and a group of university students from Salt Lake, Utah. As soon as we arrived we joined a few friends for sunset… Read more →
Durango, Colorado – Finally some mountains!
Gustaff and I made a short stop for dinner in Santa Fe, New Mexico before heading up north to Colorado. We didn’t have a whole lot of time, but I got to have a brief look at Santa Fe’s downtown and it’s Latin influence. For dinner I had a beef burrito with really spicy green chili. It was delicious! As the… Read more →
