So it’s the night before I catch my flight down to Atlanta. The past three and a half weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. Just a short time ago, I was a man with an apartment in Hoboken and a rocking job. And now I’m about to become an unkempt dude who’s day is made up of walking many miles per day.
Leaving Hoboken was one of the toughest decisions in this whole process. Not only did I leave a great city, I left a great job, and above all, I left great people. Everyone was awesome as I told them about my crazy proposed journey. I got a lot of raised eyebrows, but they were always followed by warm words and smiles. And another awesome thing – I finally got to meet Kiran, who I’ve worked with so closely over the past two years, but never met in person! It was a great experience to be able to meet up with him after all this time. There’s Kiran on the left, along with my other (former) 🙁 coworkers – Laura, Erica, Jenny, my brother Matt, and then me on the right.
So I just wanted to say thanks to everyone up in Hoboken. I wish I had some more pictures, especially of my Thursday night party! It was awesome seeing Meg, Bill and Falco before I left. And I can’t forget John – you are a great friend. I can’t name everyone here, but you know who you all are. Each of you made Hoboken a very special place for me. I’ll see you all again soon I know!
Edit: And the Des Monster comes through strong! Here’s a pic from the Farside gathering. 🙂
