I updated my Travel Log on my Maps page. The new addition contains the stretch that starts in Phoenix, goes to Dallas and then dips down into Mexico. The web is growing, but I’m still not satisfied with it.
I’m reading “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer. A tale about an epic journey by Alexander Supertramp. The climax of his travel takes place in Alaska, a place I’ve been dreaming about for a while now. The story is incredibly inspiring for me and fuels my desire to get out on the road again. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to squeeze in a trip to Alaska in between my regular (boring) life, but I’m finding it impossible. The only way it will happen the way I want it to is to take a leave of absence from my job (if they let me) and take at least a month off. But then I think, why not just quit and keep riding until I go broke? I feel the need to shed all my unnecessary belongings now. I’m putting my car up on EBay this weekend.
Maybe I can save up enough to sustain myself on the road for six months. If I camp and cook my own meals, it is doable. In a perfect world, this site gains hundreds (thousands?) of readers and I blog from the road indefinitely with support from my audience to put gas in the tank to keep me going and share my life on the road with them. Wishful thinking, but it’s enough to keep me trying to provide fresh and interesting content.
What do you think of my content? What do you like or dislike? Is there anything you would like to see in the future?
