California or Bust

At the Oakland Museum last week, I especially identified with their extensive history exhibit on settlement and migration so prevalent to this state.

Just a little over a year ago, I too immigrated here from the East Coast, a pioneer anxious to stake claim on a new life.

I never needed propaganda to send me west.

This looks alarmingly similar to my first car I drove west to California from Wisconsin right after college, complete with a "California or Bust" sign in the window. My dad wasn't kidding when he said we looked like Okies.
