Eight months after my last day at Air Station New Orleans, I found myself on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime. In the midst of a traumatic breakup, I grew immeasurable amounts. Pressure makes diamonds! Lost, confused, and heartbroken, I left for a road trip of a lifetime, only clinging to God for guidance. I left in May 2020 with only my truck and 5th wheel, and of course, with my sweet dog Mandi Pants. I experienced the most terrifying yet healing journey of my life. When you are alone with your thoughts, you tend to deal with many things that for me were on the back burner for far too long.
