Leaving Missoula

Recently something changed.  

Changed from wanting to settle down in Missoula and go to grad school to dropping everything and just going.  Going with grand ideas of destinations, but no concrete plan or return date. 

I returned to Missoula from yet another trip to South America and quickly re-realized that Missoula will never change.  The people of Missoula will always be the same although they may not be the exact same people.  I will be able to come back years from now and feel right at home again.  

Every older [than me] client I have says that they wish they would have done more traveling and less working and had more fun experiences rather than get a mortgage.  There is plenty of time for that.  I figured this is might be my only time with no real responsibilities to just drop everything conventionally know as a “home” and just go.  First north to Alaska; then south to Patagonia.  So this is just the first post of hopefully many in the next year or so of traveling and experiencing life. 

Once, the van is officially sold (Tuesday) and everything is packed we (Toren Johnson and I) are leaving for our epic road trip to Alaska on Wednesday. 

Until then, a few photos of recent stuff in Missoula:
