Travels of Indefinite Duration
Starting January 1st, 2011, I’m going to do some traveling. I have definite plans out through March and will choose and plan new destinations as I go. I don’t have an end date in mind, I’m going to travel until I run out of interest in seeing the world.
So far, the plan is:
- Jan 1 - Jan 14
- Colorado west of the Rockies, including Grand Junction, Durango, and more
- Jan 24 - Feb 11
- Colorado east of the Rockies, including Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo
- Feb 21 - Feb 28
- Mar 1 - Mar 20
- probably NYC
- May - onward
- completely open, likely international - maybe traverse Canada east-to-west
The unlisted gaps are private travel with friends and family, but I’m otherwise looking to meet up people with similar interests like web development and gaming (online and tabletop). If you’re along my route, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to recommend places I visit, to meet up, or just to chat.
As I’ve started talking about these plans, everybody asks how I’m going to pay for it. Working on the web means I can build my sites or do contracting anywhere I go, but mostly I’m traveling cheaply - discount airfare, staying in hostels and on friendly couches, and staying light enough to keep everything in one backpack. After wanting it for long enough, I’m by damn going to find a way to make it work.
Hope to see you out on the trail.
