Eastward Ho! The Grand Finale

I’ve been eastward ho-ing on this blog for ages, it seems. A nice parallel to my ever-winding trip itself.

I truly can’t put into words (or video) the impact this road trip had and still affects on my life. From Vegas to Chicago to Pennsylvania and everything in between, my appetite for new and nostalgic experiences alike was quite well fed. There are simply some moments in life I’ll never forget: my semi-spontaneous drive north for the 2008 Phillies championship parade, taking trains all over the UK after studying broad at Oxford University, and now add to that illustrious list Eastward Ho.

Here’s the rundown of my entire epic trip:

And now, here’s the grand finale for Eastward Ho:

What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken? The best moment of that trip?

  • Way to live, my friend! Love the story you’re getting to tell.
    My family moved from CA to VA as a kid, and drove the whole way. Some pretty awesome memories came from that (Grand Canyon, talking on CB’s, hotel living… it was incredible).

      Thanks for watching and following me along, Stephen! There’s just something inherently awesome about the open road. Can’t ever get enough of it.

    Took a roadtrip from Greeville, SC, to Lawrenceburg, TN, in undergrad a few years back with a good friend- was definitely fun! Favorite parts were singing “I’ll make a man out of you” from Mulan together and “team driving” down 85 going 90mph. Oh and we had a dance party to “You turn me right round baby” at one point. Roadtrips are made or broken by your music choice!

  • I took a trip to Guatemala this summer that was pretty amazing. One of the most amazing moments of the trip was turning over the keys of a new house to a family. Words won’t express what transpired.

    • Phillies 2008 Parade! How cool is that! I made a couple of the playoff games but not the finale or the parade.

        Wow, I bet that moment was awesome indeed! Thanks for sharing. And yeah, as soon as the Phils won the World Series that night, I immediately determined to drive up there from Georgia the next morning. Kinda crazy, but totally worth it.
