Driving Across The Country

When I was told that I needed to get to Las Vegas in a matter of two weeks, I knew right away that it was going to be tough for me to get there from New York without enough money for a place ticket. Since my cousin needed me right away because he got sick, I knew that I needed to get there as soon as possible. It was tough for me to think of a solution but I realized that the best thing to do was to simply drive across the country to get to Vegas.

Getting Directions

The first thing that I needed to do was to simply get the right directions so that I wouldn’t get lost. When I got the mapquest directions, I was still hesitant because I have never driven this far before. I knew right away that this was going to be a challenge for me because of how far Vegas was and how I don’t have the experience. When I studied the mapquest directions, I realized that it was possible and I was ready to start to driving.

Getting My Things Ready

When I finally got the mapquest directions, I started to get my car ready and to get my clothes ready as well. I just got most of my things and I just threw them all in the back of my truck. This was my first time ever bringing all of my things to my car but I knew that it was going to be worth it. I got all my things ready and headed over to the West Coast.

The Trip

When I got to Dallas, I knew that I needed to take a break and finally get some rest. I decided that I can just look around for a while and get my cousin some souvenirs since he was actually a big Mavericks fan. The sad thing about the trip was that I ended up getting lost and I have no idea how to get back on track. Though I had the mapquest directions, I needed to find my way back to highway 10. By the time I found my way back, I was able to still continue to use the mapquest directions that I got in the first place. Though I got fairly scared, I was happy that I found my way back to get on the right roads.

The trip finally ended and I was able to finally visit my cousin. I ended up staying in Vegas longer than I expected and it has been a month now since i’ve been here. I have been taking care of him and there really was not much going for me in New York. So when I got to Vegas, I was able to look for a job and I realized that this was a trip that really needed to happen. I am just really thankful that the long drive across the country was not too tough and I was safe throughout the whole dream.
