I’ve been terrible at keeping this thing updated during my past travels so I’m not making any promises this round. I’ll be traveling via car from Kansas City to California then hitching to Eugene, Oregon and back.
I’ll be by myself the entire time. There’s really no particular reason for this trip (not that I need one). I just turned 24 years old. I suffer from chronic depression, social phobia, and anxiety. My number one goal right now in therapy has been to get more comfortable just sitting by myself. Being alone in my head, with all the thoughts good and bad. I think this journey will be good for that - nothing but me and the road.
Destination: Denver, CO
Been a while. I’ve been in Kansas City recovering from my last trip. This time, I’m heading west with a final destination of Seattle, WA. My new road dog (Hobbes) and I are heading to the Gender Odyssey Conference which is gonna be super rad.
We’re starting our journey from the truck stop east of Lawrence, KS! Been here for a couple hours with no luck, but we’ve made our signs. It’s storming at the moment so we’ve set up camp inside of a McDonalds to make sure our stuff is charged, blog, and update rideshare stuff.
Excited to get started on this journey! I’ll try to update every day.
Van Gogh once wrote, “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” You can replace the word paint with any dream we might pursue. There will always be conflicting voices within us—those that whisper about the great dreams waiting to be realized and those that scream that we lack the talent or capacity to achieve them. Part of that process is deciding which voices will inform us.
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.

The struggle is fucking real. Before you use the word mutilation to describe what I’m doing to my own body let me use the word torture to describe what society is doing to it. Bladder infections are not fun, but being verbally and/or physically harassed is so much worse.
