Today, I started out on what is to be my first great adventure with my partner. I plan on keeping a journal of everything that happens along the way. In general, we hope to gain a new perspective from this adventure and to make our way into the world we wish to create while still managing to get to Idapalooza, my brother’s wedding and then as far west as we can make it before the summer ends.
We were picked up from St. Agony by a friend of ours and taken to Gainesville for a quick pit stop on our way to Idapalooza in TN. At first I was frightened that I might have to stay back and see a dentist because one of my teeth is rotting right the fuck out of my face thanks to an old root canal that never got crowned because I’m poor. Thankfully, we managed to find and liberate some shit from a CVS along the way that can help (apparently, you can just refill cavities yourself which I did in a Walmart bathroom just a little while ago).
We’ll be leaving tonight at 2am with a couple of other awesome Queer friends and maybe I’ll have more interesting things to share. For now, though, we’ve only taken our first step of many away from the illusions of comfort which come with dependance on money and consumer culture as a whole.
