Into the Great Unknown I Go!

With my bags packed, my phone left behind, and my hair gel stealthily hidden in my luggage, I was ready to head out into the great unknown. Or just 'California', if you prefer. For a mission through school, I was to choose a religion and make pilgrimage to its most sacred of sites, or in my case, main basis of operation and create a small project on what I had learned. I had chosen Scientology and after a short phone call to a young man named John and arranging my arrival and stay, I was head out to California and visit the Scientology main headquarters, 100 miles north of Los Angeles in a place called Gold Base. John had arranged for me to arrive in LAX from YYZ on the 7th of July, visit the grounds go Gold Base on the 9th, and be back home before the 12th. Not wanting me to go alone, (or maybe in the hopes of seeing Ryan Gosling or any other such celebrity) my parents and my brother tagged along. They of course not being part of the project, had no intent of joining me to Gold Base. That didn't make me nervous at all. No, not at all. I'm not freaking out, you're freaking out!
