He retired at age 26 from a job where he made his own hours, drank free beer, and worked with his friends. He may be an idiot. He may be following something he couldn’t understand.
He used his time before departing the country to travel California to visit places he had never been, and reconnect with some of those who grounded him. It was time to visit places he had always heard about and added to his list of places to go ‘one day.’ He was tired of waiting for that day because he realized it would never come unless he made it. Bodega Bay in Northern California. Death Valley National Park. New Orleans (a trip for the books with his father and brother). Check.
