My sister, father and I have been dying to get out of North Carolina. We are two young women and an old army man who need to see the greatest parts of the US of A. My dad has only traveled for work, which means staying in Missouri, etc. in an underground bunker for training. I've only been to three states (NC, SC, VA). Save us from our unworldliness.

"Everywhere you look, everywhere you go there's a heart (There's a heart), a hand to hold onto. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, there's a place, of somebody who needs you everywhere you look." I'm holding out hope that Uncle Jessie is still wandering around San Fran.
I want to see the bright green aliveness of the world in Portland. Just look at that! Wouldn't you be happy to freeze to death in that waterfall? I would. Or just to look at it from far away and freeze. Portland is so weird. I want to go live the dream of the 90s that is alive in Portland.
