People visit, and they never leave. In fact, I intended to pass through the city for a three day stop during my current , and over five weeks later, I am still here. I embarked on this cross-country road trip over three months ago with my dog in order to reclaim my life from the corporate grind. 15 years in the rat race had just about destroyed me and I found myself no longer liking the woman I had become.
