With MultimediaShooter down and out for the count, I haven’t been able to get my Koci travelogue fix in quite a while, which is harsh because it’s messing with my pre-trip vibe. See, I always watched some of those before a trip just to get me in the right mind set, but now those are gone. And I don’t have an MP3 player (yeah, yeah, whatevz) so I can’t even listen to some of my favorite “This American Life” episodes either.

So I’m gearing up to fly and drive from California to Florida for the Poynter Summer Fellowship and I’ve got nothing to get my creative juices flowing.

Luckily I happened across a road trip piece by Julia Robinson, a friend from SF State who also happened to be a Poynter Fellow last year and part of the reason why I applied this year.

Pretty awesome, and not at all cheesy as she was afraid it might be. Just the medicine I was looking for. Now… it’s time for me to get on the road…
