One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was 16 years old, hitchhiking from Montreal to San Francisco with a friend, then back to Reno (and hot springs), Nevada and couchsurfing for 7 days over there before going back to Montreal returning by Seattle, Vancouver, etc... I was going to work in southern Ontario. What a surprise for my parents when they received a postcard saying that I was in California and going back later.
