The Other Way Back: A Travelogue

The Other Way Back: A Travelogue

The year was 2004:

  • Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook,
  • Terry Nichols was found guilty of 161 counts of state murder for his part in the Oklahoma city bombing
  • Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" rocked the nation
  • Gigli wins the 24th annual Razzy
  • Friends ends it's 10 year run
  • Harold and Kumar go to White Castle is released
  • Lance Armstrong disqualified from Tour de France
  • Lost debuts
  • SpaceShipOne becomes the first private spacecraft to achieve space flight
  • The Red Sox win the world series for the first time in 86 years
  • George W. Bush is re-elected for a second term
  • Halo 2 is released
  • Dwight Stone and Chris Balson drive cross country from Lititz to Los Angeles

Boy a lot has changed hasn't it? Today, Balson and I are going to begin our journey in the other direction. In 2004 he drove out here to Los Angeles with me and then flew home; today he will be landing at LAX at 11am and we'll being the journey in the other direction. A lot has changed since we did this last, and I hope to highlight some of those changes as well as bring you some thoughts on our journey as we go. Expect a new post every night until we land in Ephrata on January 4th.

On with the Adventure!
