NEWS: How I’ve Spent My Summer (part 1)

Well, I think at this point it’s not news to anyone anymore that I got laid off from my job back in March.  I spent a few months trying to lock-down some employment out in California, but to no avail.  So, I sold off, threw away and lost (thanks USPS!) most of what I had, packed up what was left and headed East.  Stopped through Austin for some days, then off to the Daytona, FL zone where my family resides.  Hung out, headed north to MPLS.  Spent June there and then left swinging through Chicago on my way back down south to Florida. 8,000+ miles so far this summer.
