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.

Michigan, I'm Back!


Tuesday, Sep 11, 2007 from East Lansing, Michigan

Back in Michigan! I left a year ago, went to all 50 states, stayed with over 100 households, had good times, bad times, and saw more of the United States than I could have imagined.

After all this time of being full of thoughts, I’m just not sure what to write about. I’m a little overwhelmed to be back, maybe a lot overwhelmed. The last few weeks have been some of the busiest of the year. All of a sudden my brother got married. Then before I could even process that, my plane was landing in Alaska. Alaska, what an experience that was. But once again, before I was able to process that I was driving back into Michigan and seeing friends for the first time I hadn’t seen in a year.

I’m trying to take it slow and spread it all out. There is a lot of excitement, but I can’t handle it all at once. I plan to take a lot of time to decompress. For the first time I can look back on this entire year, though I’m doing it slowly. There were those who doubted the trip, I had some doubts and worries myself. But it went smooth, very smooth. I didn’t have as much as a single flat tire! All the worries I had, all the worries other people had, none of them happened. It was a success.

As for Michigan, thank you! I enjoyed going around the country and educating people about Michigan. To my surprise not as many people have been to Michigan as I expected. I educated a lot of people about the Upper Peninsula (where my heart is) and Michigan State. I showed my Michigan and Spartan pride across the country. Michigan is a great state to represent.
