Topher's Journey Out West

#1 Postby robert » Wed Oct 05, 2005 10:32 pm

Well, it's official, Topher is on his way to Oregon!

As many of you have read from other threads, Topher was having a bit of a tough time deciding what to do this year as far as school, work, place of residence, etc.

He finally decided he would move out to Oregon to live some of the dreams he's had for years and to reach some of the new goals he has set for himself.

His actual driving journey across the US began this morning from Pennsylvania and I just received a message from him on my phone while I was napping, informing me he is now in Illinois and still moving along. He expects to be here in a couple of days.

I'll keep you all updated on his progress as he's phoning each day to let me know where he is.

I have lots of cleaning up to do around the apartment before his arrival so I better get to work.

It looks like he'll be here in time for my competition :) I compete in 10 days and I'll have Big Topher cheering for me :)

All the best, I'm off to eat and clean now.

I agree. Topher is one of the nicest, kindest people I've come across.

He's pumped about the trip out here and I can't believe in just about 2 days time, he'll be out here kickin it with me, training with me in my final week before my upcoming bodybuilding contest :)

I'll post some pics of us training next week :)

Way cool Rob! I know you guys will have a great time together.

It really is so much fun meeting people from the board that you have gotten to know so well already. And yes, Topher is exceptional. In addition to being kind, you will find he is extremely intelligent and thoughtful as well. :D

Topher is going to fit in well at your place too, he is always shedding clothes and wandering around half naked. :lol:

I can't believe he left PA just like that! Well, okay, I can because I would, too, and I didn't even have to grow up here, but STILL! ;)

It is a LONG Drive, but I just got word tonight when Topher called during my workout that he was in Nebraska, only 2 hours from Wyoming where me may retire for the evening. I believe Wyoming to Oregon can be done in on day, I think I did that before, so he may be here tomorrow night!

Unfortunately for my regular full-time job I work all 7-4 Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but I'll get to train and hang out in the evenings.

My phone died, so I'm charging it now and I'll call him in a bit, I bet he's in Wyoming by now :)

Only 9 more days until my contest, so it will be really cool to have Topher here for that :)

The last time I drove cross-country, I drove from Enterprise, OR (had family living there) to Rapid City, SD in one day... and that's roughly the same distance, I think. It can totally be done in one day, but it'll be a long day.

Is Montana still virtually without a speed limit on the highways, I wonder? (aka Montanabahn)

Hehehe.
I, for one, am getting pretty excited. I haven't heard from Robert yet today, but he seemed to think Topher might even get here tonight :shock: I can't believe he's traveled so fast! What a speed demon! :P
I shall have to go make myself all pretty for his arrival....no, just kidding, but I am at least going to try to vacuum! :)
Now there will be 3 vegans in the house!

Topher is in Oregon!

I hadn't heard from Topher in nearly 24 hours and was a bit worried but remembered that he probably wouldn't have cell phone service out in the middle of Wyoming or Idaho.

So I was just saying to myself when am I going to hear from Topher again, and he called within seconds of my thought, and informed me he was in Oregon :) Of course, he's on the other site of the state, but he'll be here in about 6 hours.

I'm sure he'll share stories once he gets here, but he's told me about sleeping in his car with snow all around, in below freezing conditions and waking up to people looking at him through his window.

He's made amazing time and will barely make it as far as money goes. He'll probably have $50 left over.

So that is the report for now. I have to go to the gym and then mash some potatoes for Topher so they'll be ready when he gets here.
