Planning my first real road trip

I'm going to New Orleans for Halloween, to see my fellow redhead on meds (we're an unnofficial club of about 6 fantastic redheads). I'm booking for my way down there, while I'm down there, and my way back.

I have an itinerary. Loosely. I have a travel path:
Des Moines, IA
Davenport, IA
Peoria, IL
Nashville, TN (overnight)
Birmingham, AL
New Orleans, LA
4 days in the beautiful catastrophe that is, so far, my favorite city ever, with the perfect catastrophe Erin, that is, so far, my favorite person ever.
New Orleans, LA
Jackson, MI
St. Louis, MO
Kansas City, MO
Des Moines, IA

So far, I have one shoot booked for sure. Several possible shoots and sessions in New Olreans.

I'll have my piercing gear, and my fancy new boots will arrive Monday, so they'll be broken in by the time I start my drive.

I'm really excited to be going. I hope the trip is profitable, but if nothing else, it will be lots of fun, because I get to stop and see a lot of friends on the way there, while there, and back.

I've travelled to shoot before, but it's never been a multiple city thing. Here's to my first real, on the road, long, modeling trip!

My name is Aubrey and I am an art model from Buffalo. I primarily tour the East Coast, spending two weeks on the road and two weeks in Buffalo. I've been modeling since I was 19 (I am 27) and have been doing this professionally for about two years. Due to touring a very specific geographic pocket consistently and working with many of the same people repeatedly; I've always considered myself to be "under the radar" of anyone outside of the North East (although lately I've found more people may know of me than I realize.)

I can easily say that there is no standard life of a touring model. The way we tour, where we go and how we live varies depending on the model. What works for one model may not work for another model. In this blog, I will be contributing my accounts of what it is like for me on the road.

That's me. Taken by House of Light.
