Last year, one of my best friends and fellow Cornerstone core team members, C. David Walters moved to San Diego with his family in order to pursue a Ph.D. in math and math education. While it was sad to see him go, I was able to send him off in a way which was worthy of our friendship – I helped him drive the moving truck to San Diego. We were on the road for almost 7 days in a moving truck with a car trailer in-tow. It involved long days and lots of driving, truck stops, and fast food.
It was one of the best experiences of my life. 6 days, driving across this great country, viewing God’s creation with one of your best friends is amazing. We saw rivers, forests, mountains, deserts, small towns, and big cities. We talked, argued, and laughed. We stood on mountain tops and gazed at all that God created. We made rules about our trip and we broke them. We used an iPhone to complete “aerial reconnaissance” on hotels with possible space to park. We enjoyed and endured each other’s choice of music. We met friends and family along the way. We ate at iconic restaurants, and saw all three major coastlines of the US.
Best yet, we bonded as brothers-in-Christ and made memories that will last a lifetime.
