Phoenix to Phoenix


"I'm gonna walk the earth."
"Whatch you mean, you gonna walk the earth?"
"Walk the earth. You know, like Kane in Kung Fu."
"You're gonna be a bum?"
"No. I'm gonna meet people, get in adventures."
"A bum. Without a job, and legal tender, you aint nothing but a fucking bum."


12,619.2 miles; 27days, 5 hours, 43 minutes. That's what the trip planner on the computer said, and that's just the driving. I will be checking the sites and kicking back in Key West and other places for awhile. I can't wait. I am so excited. I wish I had the money right now. I'm planning 3 or 4 months, and that's just taking my time. I will be putting the United States map up on my wall. I will be doing lots of research on exactly where I want to go. I have heard of several different places in my life, the trick is remembering the names of the places. Although part of my trip will just be improvised. If I feel like going to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, I will.

I am starting to save money today. I will be selling things of mine to finance the trip. Like sperm, blood, one of my kidneys. Kidding! DVDs, DVDs, and maybe whatever I can get for my couch. My aunt said that I could use her video camera, so that's nice. Serjio said that I should have a party about 2 weeks before I leave, and people can bring things for my trip. He said that he would have no problem giving me a bunch of tapes for the camera, and whatever else. After I got off the phone, I started thinking that it would be like a relief benefit. You would all be relieved to get rid of me, and I you. You may be saying, "Hey Phil, you haven't even saved dime one. Shouldn't you wait until you have a couple thousand dollars before you start putting on the sunblock?" No, that's what happened before. I said that I was going to go on a U.S. Tour and then I didn't. Now I am in it for the long haul.

I am jazzed. Although, you guys thought it was annoying hanging out with me for a night. Well I'll be stuck with myself for 3 to 4 months. Boring, fun, interesting, and a hell of a good time.

I'm thinking April, but it actually depends on how much money I think I need. The trip planner said 900 and something dollars for the gas. It depends on the car and the gas prices. Plus for me there's the question of what I'm going to spend on touristy things. Disney World, Catalina Island, the Bahamas, Key West, New York, Washington D.C., anyway you get the idea.

WTF....Don't make me beat you with the ugly stick you were born with. WTF...I read your comment you left me on my journal and so I came here to read your journal, per your request..... and.... well.... I have to say Phill I'm not impressed....no..I'm not impressed at all. As a matter of fact, Phill, I'm depressed. You're leaving? What the fuck? I thought you were going to be my roomie. Now I'm stuck with the Human Cockroach and you, you, you know what? Well I don't have a shoe big enough for this one...If you get my drift. I want my midget porn collection back! Well have a nice day.

Just Kidding...Hey! We need to hang out or get out some time...

Call me.

Have a nice day for real.

Vash.

Oh Vash! You don't even have a date of the cockraoches departure - he is supposed to put his life on hold waiting for the extermination. :) I know you are teasing him and I am teasing you now, so don't get all upset.

Besides, you don't know him as well as I do - he can't bear to be apart from his friends for more than a few weeks. He'll hit Seattle and have to come back home. :)

Movieman~ I would hit Key West with you that is for sure I love that place!

Vash~ Sorry about the cockroach only one that has lived with cockroach can understand that the hunt for the right shoe is not easy. I would just sit down with him and tell him I need you out by such and such a date if that is what you are wanting. Then Phillip can move in and life will be grand :-)

Mrs H~ I need to have you email me Mr H's mom's address so I can send her a thank you card from Kenny.

Ok covered all the basis. Love you all.
