Hollis 2 Hollywood-but is he good?

So it’s official. I’m moving to California. Yeah I’m scared. I’m scared of the drive, what might happen out there if shit doesn’t go right, what might happen if all goes as planned. It’s all terrifying. It’s also the move for me right now. Let’s just say that Allah willing, Canhead will benefit from the move greatly, as will I. (no I’m not a Muslim, I just figured I need all the help I can get right now!)

The part that has me pacing at midnight is the drive. I am doing the crazy road trip from hell, New York to California by way of Ford Taurus, a car notorious for prompting calls to AAA. Thanks to AAA I have a nice route planned and I go over it constantly. I can make the trip in 48 hours, but I plan on 4 days. I will be taking it easy on the ole girl, she is delicate. I just dumped money into her, so I’m pretty confident that with a transmission flush and refill before the trip, “She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself….Chewie style ya dig!

I’m doing the vagabond thing until I reach Vegas. I plan on stopping somewhere around Indy, catch a few Z’s then down a 6 pack of Red-Bull, and shoot out west. I may take a day to see The Grand Canyon and Sin City, but after that, it’s on to Hollywood! (Los Angeles to be exact)

So if any of you have any suggestions on the trip, I’m all ears. My take off date is in the air too, I was planning on a May 1st departure, but I’m getting antsy. I may bail early. I will keep you posted!

Of course I’m documenting the whole trip for the blog. (“Canhead’s Coast To Coast Post” It’s got a ring to it.) I look forward to meeting everyone in Cali and becoming a West Coast Blog Critic. Pray for my car!

I’ll holla~
