::4 college kids, half of us graduated, half of us with a semester left. Ill-planned (that was the point), ill-incomed (we were planning to live cheaply), but with soaring spirits about the whole excursion. A break away from school, from the east, from the monotonous rhythm we had fallen into. Yes, we had jobs to get back to, school to attend in the fall, errands to run, things to do.
......when we arrived in Cadiz, KY, the fun began. It was Colin and Phil's idea to live off the land, so, naturally, we weren't going to buy firewood when we arrived (at some point) at a campsite. So we went on a few backroads in Kentucky and found this creekbed with stores of dead wood, just lying around. Armed with a hatchet and saw, we managed to get a sizeable amount of wood in the trunk with all our stuff. We looked ridiculous doing it. All part of the experience though, right? Haha.
The driving rotation went as follows: Colin, Me, Phil, then Eli. After I had driven a good 4 hours, Phil took over and led us into St. Louis....oh....around 3am......
