One Man's Alaska

Left Kentucky one year ago

March 9, 2011

Last night I realized that I left Kentucky one year ago yesterday, and began the long drive to Alaska. I actually left Kentucky twice. I left once around March 2, 2010, to see my family in Illinois, then came back to Kentucky to see one of my dogs one more time before I left.

I've written about Zeus before, so I won't say anything more here, as it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about leaving him. I'll just say that I came back to see him one more time, and then on March 8th I said goodbye and started the drive to Alaska. By this time last year I was probably still in Missouri, or possibly Kansas. Little did I know what adventures life had in store for me.
