Document

What is travel? What does it generate? What is changed? How to communicate this? This book is the second in a series of books, (as well as posters movies and web pages) documenting my late 2010 to early 2011 move across country, and my efforts to answer these questions for myself I had sold and or given away everything that could not fit in or on my truck and left my long time home of Los Angeles. Looking for a new home, I don’t expect to return there. The first steps of a journey to a new “home”. Having driven across country before there were a few things I wanted to see again: Meteor Crater, The VLA, Madalena, White Sands and Roswell, NM. A few new places to check out: Austin, TX , Baton Rouge & New Orleans, LA as possible landing sites. An old friend and his new children I had never met, in Atlanta.

Route assembled, the trip follows.
