ADAM: Hello, Earthlings. You’re watching Adam the Alien, and I have been on a Great American Wander.

The last time I uploaded a video, I said I was going to Michigan for a Rainbow gathering, and I did. And once I was over there, I just thought: you know, I haven’t been on this side of the Mississippi in a long time. Like, since I was a kid. And I decided: why not just keep wandering?

It’s really weird looking back at the footage from all of this trip because I am not the person I was when I left, and it’s just so strange looking back at who I was, and who I am, and who I’m becoming.

And I have so much to say, and so much to tell you, and so many videos to make, that I’ve been scripting and working on. But I thought I should give you a taste of what’s been going on for the last…it’s been more than a month. I’ve been on the other side of the country for more than a month.

So you know what? Musical montages speak better than words. Here you go.

SYLVIA: Aha-ho-hoooo! We on the road!

OFF-CAMERA VOICE (as Adam jumps into the water): Woo!
ADAM: The view going down is so much more intense than the view, uh, watching people.

ADAM: So that’s my journey so far, and you know what? It’s not over yet. At the very least, I still have to go all the way across the country just to get home.

I hope to share with you the things I’ve learned on this journey very soon. And until then, I hope you are all having lovely lives.

I’m Adam the Alien. Fare thee well.
