You know what I think would be fun? Taking a road trip across America loosely following my walking path and seeing all the people who helped me along the way. It’d be pretty nice to be able to let the ones who don’t follow online know that I made it safe and sound.
And road trips are always fun!
I’m imagining we’d go in a tricked out VW Van.
I think Anna would really take to van travel. She’s excellent in a car (as many people across America can attest to), and I think she got a little bored with the constant foot travel. I think travelling in a van, and taking day trips would really suit her.
We could stop places and do day hikes and explore areas we couldn’t get to while passing on foot. Maybe schedule in some organized public/town walks. Do some public speaking at local schools, encouraging kids to get outdoors and explore more. I don’t know. These are the things I contemplate and dream about. What my next adventure will be, what I’d do differently, different modes of travel. It’s fun to plan and dream.
Edit to add:
After reading this blog entry my mother commented: And to think, that’s what I suggested you should have done the first trip.
To which I replied: Yes, but it wasn’t the right time for that kind of trip. I needed to go on foot first.
Which is true. Everything in it’s own time, and all that jazz.
