zephyr_macabee: Sherlock has a tantrum (Default)
[personal profile] zephyr_macabee
It was 30 years ago today that I put a U-Haul cartop carrier on my 1972 Toyota Corona; loaded it, the trunk and the backseat with my stuff; put my dog in the shotgun seat and departed New Hampshire for California. 

Twenty five years old, driving solo cross-country.  I was so brave. 

It took me 4 1/2 days; I took a half-day break in Salt Lake City.  Since I did not have air conditioning I was very lucky it never got too hot during the trip.  Except the last day.  As I came down from the Sierras into the Sacramento Valley it went from the 60s to 110.

I was only going to spend 4 years here, get my pathology training and then go back to work for UNH. 

It did not work out that way.  But even after 30 years, more than half my life, California is not home; New Hampshire is home.

Someday I am going home.
