Jinnah in a fit of awesome made stop-action movies out of the first 3 days of the trip. He attached a special hacked camera to the windshield that could take a picture every 10 seconds all day. Then he set it all to music. The first 10 seconds of the first movie is a little funky, but it clears up. The direct sunlight washes it out a bit. But it's still totally awesome.
The final days of our journey bring thoughts of home and things familiar, of where we've come from and where we're going. It was in this spirit that we decided to visit the house in which our own Vincent Hoon spent his teenage years. Chicago to Pittsburgh could have been a straight and dull road, but we opted for a memorable detour through Lafayette, IN.
We met Vincent's parents (Jeff and Patricia), his three siblings (Matt, Deborah, Juli), Deborah's husband, Tim, and even the family dogs, Barrett and Beau. We had a fantastic dinner complete with vegan options (thank you, Jeff!) and wonderful desserts including a Google cake (thank you, Patricia!).
It was a reminder that one of the pleasures of traveling is coming home.
So from all of us on this crazy RV adventure: THANK YOU, HOON FAMILY! Please come visit us in California. We look forward to returning your hospitality.
