You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Leaving Metropolis


Sunday, Jul 8, 2007 from Portland, Maine

At last, I am refreshed to be out of the booming metropolis of the East Coast. For the last several weeks I have made it through Washington, D.C., New York City, and Boston. And of course the other stops between in New Jersey, Connecticut, and Rhode Island are all just states full of cities that connect all these big ones together. It’s a fast pace in the city and it was a great time, but it feels pretty good to be out of the big city. Maine is a little slower pace… a lot slower pace.

I’ve learned to “let the chips fall where they may,” along the course of the trip. From the beginning of the trip I didn’t plan to spend as much time in major cities as I have. However, more and more people have moved to the suburban and urban areas and a lot less of the country lives in rural areas.

From here on out there won’t be many big cities, it looks like I’ll be stopping in Pittsburgh and that could be it. Still trying to figure out what I would like for living in my life. I think I’ll start big, maybe move to NYC or Chicago just to try it. Parhaps with each stage of my life I’ll move down to a smaller size city.

Have a good day everyone!
