7 States- Colorado

"Samerito, I got an Idea. Why don't you go to Cali with me? We will end up at Texas before Christmas." For a guy who was staying with strangers, those words from a buddy were like an invitation to escape the prison. I replied "Hell yeah! Bro. Let's do this". It was my 4th day in Denver, the Mile High City. I had been staying in the cheapest Airbnb room there for 4 nights now.
