So, I'm a little bit behind on blogging The Great Wanderlust of 2012. I did a decent job with documenting the West Coast Edition of the Teach Erica Something World Tour and summarized road trip one ("up"). Next came the trip cross-country ("over"), which was captured mostly in pictures from here and there, and summarized by the numbers. Since then... well, these trips began 9+ weeks and 21+ states ago, so I have some catching up to do.
My first stop on trip three ("down") was the Bardo Farm in New Hampshire. I was there nearly three weeks and could have stayed much longer. I did quite a lot of learning, and my trip was bookended by two big events: seeing President Obama on the first day and walking the Manchester City Half-Marathon on the last day!
I spent some time shooting guns of all sizes... mostly at paper, plastic, and metal targets, but I did manage to shoot my share of (exploding) zombies at the Zombie Apocalypse party!
And since I've become a little bit obsessed with PhotoGrid, here's one more collage of me and various farm animals and farm vehicles - a four-wheeler, a three-wheeler, and a two-wheeler. It's hard to tell how adorable those piglets are from the picture but trust me: A. Dor. A. Ble.
Other adventures in NH included getting to visit my fabulous cousin, the Deputy Field Director for Training and Internships at Obama For America; helping hold down Shadow, my friend's poor dog, while we extracted porcupine needles from his mouth (ouch!). Oh, and ALMOST DYING FROM A TICK ON MY BACK. I hope to be back in May :)
