After I quit my job at Microsoft, Daniel and I decided to spend some time traveling around Washington state to visit family. With our trip around the world only weeks away, we weren’t sure when we’d get a chance to see them again and wanted to say good-bye. We decided to make the trip as short as possible, so I put together an insanely ambitious schedule that involved driving all over the state. We drove from Seattle to Spangle to Spokane to Palouse to Nooksack to Bellingham to Seattle again in a 4-day period. That’s a total of 823 miles.
