I couldn't wait to get away from Lakeview, Oregon. I couldn't wait to leave the 1,500 people I had known my whole life. I couldn't wait to pack my bags and peace out. 

So I did. 

I went to Texas. I went to London. I went to France. I went to Italy. I went to Scotland. I went to Panama. I went to Georgia. I went to South Carolina... 

Then I met Jesus, and He sent me back home.
