We packed everything we owned and left it in storage at my parent's house. We packed two duffel bags of clothes and our cat into a beat up old Buick Skylark and left. We didn't know where we were going, we just started driving. We went south out of Montana first, then drove along the southern border of the U.S., then drove up through Georgia and South Carolina. We finally completely ran out of money in Raleigh North Carolina. We worked day labor there until we saved enough for an apartment and then worked full time jobs to start furnishing it. It was a great experience...though definitely difficult at times.
