Planes, trains and everything in between...Bay to DC to NYC

Well hello there! Long time no post right. It's been a very transitional period in my career. New job, new focus and a high schooler ready to embark on his next journey. I haven't stopped searching and exploring the latest and greatest mind melting foodgasmic narcotic. In fact, I probably consumed more sinfully, ever so unforgiving eats than my body could handle. Yes, I have put on a few unwanted pounds...but that will soon turn around...I promise...after this trip that is. But I can't say that I have officially returned to the blogging ranks just yet. Although I do promise to chronicle this this experience do to the nature and intent of this trip. I promise to beautifully photograph.amd document my experience in the East Coast and also provide some helpful tips to my fellow parents who are fortunate enough to have college bound kids.

The purpose of this awesome adventure is to do my dad thing with my eldest kid. It's about that time where he is starting to plan out his future and I'm waking up in cold sweats having nightmares about tuition bills of 50k or more year! #investment, that's what I have to continue to remind myself. I do have to say that I have become somewhat of an expert when it comes to college planning. It pays to know more about the process early just so you and your child can prepare for the future. Trust me, don't rely on just your college counselors and or your neighbor recommendations. Anyway, I'll make sure to provide some tips, tricks and surefire ways to maximize scholarships and merit based aid. I promise to visit some great restos as well.

Did I mention that I have an been planning and executing this trip via app based resources, YouTube, social media and all powered by my iPhone. Pretty scary right? Anyway wish me luck and hopefully I get out of SFO soon. Peace.
