USA Trip +

Two things! First off, I made a website called, to work as a digital calling card of sorts. You should check it out and tell me what you think.

Second off, I'm going to the US for the rest of the month! I'm travelling with my friends Calle and Anders who you might know from Calle & Anders or their appearances in my hourly comics. By the way, hourly comics fans, if you haven't figured it out yet I did not do hourly comics through the whole of July, as I've done in previous years. I've been working on other projects, which will appear here eventually. Still doing hourlies on the first of every month though, even though I'm being very lazy about uploading them.

We're flying into New York, staying there for a few days before travelling by bus to New Orleans, stopping off in Washington, Charlotte and Atlanta on the way. Then we're in New Orleans for a few days before renting a car (probably) and making our way across the south to Las Vegas and then Los Angeles. Why are we doing this? Because we want to. We've been planning and saving for years at this point, and we're leaving very very soon, and it's all pretty exciting.

If you know anything about me you know that I'll be documenting the trip with videos, pictures, comics, etc. While Awesomepedia probably won't update until we're back, I'll be posting lots of stuff on my facebook / twitter on the road. (If you're a fan of the site but not my friend on facebook you can stop being shy right now and just hit that button.)

If you're gonna be somewhere along the road, don't hesitate to get in touch so we can meet up! I promise not to murder you if you promise not to murder me. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention our fourth travelling companion, Dalahest, who just recently got a twitter...
