how to pack your life into a box-ster

February 18, 2009

On my road trip back to Austin, I surprised myself yet again with my amazing pseudo-ninja packing/cramming skills, by packing everything I owned into the Boxster.

Back Trunk: suitcase, shoes, sleeping bag, casserole dish, laundry hamper, bathroom rug, and a messenger bag full of documents.

Passenger Seat: coat hangers, toiletries, wireless router, toilet paper, towel, backpack w/ computer stuff, road atlas, and of course, red bull, the ultimate road trip drink.


road trip!: houston to austin

August 8, 2008

So begins my road trip out west. I am moving to California, although the exact city is still uncertain. This trip, which includes stops in El Paso, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, will hopefully reveal to me where I’m meant to be, for now. It’s just that I’ve found myself in kind of a rut this past year, and a change like this will do me good. I will also be using this blog as a travel journal of sorts, so check back here to get updates, hopefully. First stop, is of course, Austin. So my first leg of the journey was Houston to Austin. Here are some quick stats:

Distance: 175 miles
Average Speed: 63.5 mph
Moving Time: 2 hours 45 minutes 
Total Time: 2 hours 56 minutes
Average Mileage: 26.9 mpg

Austin details later…
