The Drive Home – Boston to Maine to New Orleans

Our moving truck came on a Tuesday and we headed out of Boston after living there for two years. With our belongings heading South, we headed North to Maine for a week (I know, a little out of the way) to visit Zander’s grandmother and spend some time on the water. After some rest and relaxation we hit the road to New Orleans with a few short stops along the way. During these two weeks we went on evening sails, steamed lobsters, jumped in ponds, had dinner in the fish house, visited the Antietam National Battlefield, dipped our toes in the Potomac River, got souvenir Civil War hats (they make an appearance in the video), drove through the Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive, drank lots of coffee and saw some beautiful sunsets! Things got a little crazy down South because of Hurricane Issac. We drove through some bad weather, downed tree and an interstate that was about to overflow with flood waters but overall it was an amazing drive home! We got a GoPro camera for the trip, so we shot some really cool video footage on the road.

If you have ten minutes, check out the short film, Hub to NOLA, that Zander made of our journey home! I highly recommend watching full screen on Vimeo but it is also below. Don’t worry, it’s not just us in a car.
