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 Alone


Wednesday, Aug 15, 2007 from Bellbrook, Ohio

There are some mornings on the trip where I am all alone and have to hit the road. These are times when my hosts are already off to school or work when I wake up and I don’t get to say a proper goodbye. And even after having to say goodbye to hundreds of great new people, I still like my long goodbyes.

The latest of these situations was leaving Bellbrook, OH today. I got out of bed and headed for the kitchen for a bowl of cereal. I was quite surprised. There was a note wishing me the best for the last three states, some kinds words, a bag of chocolate chip cookies, a little stuffed eagle (the high school mascot), a great card (complete with Q-tips!), and the best was a family photo to take with me!

I don’t know what I did to deserve all of this. These last few states I’m not sure if I have even been on my game like earlier on the trip. I’m too distracted! Too anxious! Too excited! …to get home. They were very generous, giving me some dollars to fill the gas tank. This isn’t the only time to wake up to goodies before heading out. It’s something special.
