My step dad kicked my out of the house in 11th grade and gave me a 1 way plane ticket to anywhere in the world I wanted to go, I chose Alaska.
This was my first entry July 5th 1996:
"I’m not sure where I should begin… I’ve just left everything known to be behind in the dust, for now.
I shall be arriving in Seattle soon. Today was the hardest day of my life. I cried, something I haven’t done in a long time. I have taken my first steps in becoming a man.
I’ve arrived in Seattle, saw the magnificent Mt. Rainer. Not much around so I ate at Denny’s, it’s the same as the one in Maryland. Met a cowboy who tuned my guitar, he said he’d played with Travis Tritts band.
He seemed the friendliest of all the locals I’ve met so far.
Sitting in front of the AK terminal right now, waiting for my plane. It’s too bad it’s only 1am and my flight isn’t until 8:20am. I can’t wait to get some sleep, tomorrow’s going to be a damn long day… Arrive in Petersburg at 11:20 am.”

- scenic-roots said: Are you from Maryland? I noticed the 9:30 club ticket too. I grew up outside of Baltimore, and have been living in the city for 7 years now. Sorry to hear about your hardships with you step-dad, but every experience makes & shapes who we are today.
