Johnny Cash had a famous song in the 1990s (a remake of a Hank Snow song actually) which stated “Ive Been Everywhere”. In some respects that could be my theme song. I have been very blessed in my short 55 year life to have traveled far and wide across these United States and even into Canada and Mexico.
Indeed, I have been to almost every major city in the country and most in Canada (with the exception of eastern cities in Canada — from Montreal on). I have been to every state in the union except for Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire (and yes, I have been to Hawaii and Alaska!!). I have been to most National Parks and Monuments, major museums and tourist spots.
It all started when I was young, watching “On the Road with Charles Kuralt” and looking at black and white travel books published by Time/Life. Yes, as the Rare Earth song goes, I was “Born to Wander.”
But, with all the places I have gone, the back roads of America have been the most fun. Lots of great places, and some not so great. Great names, great views, unexpected treats. That is what I hope to provide in a daily dose of enjoying the ride.
I hope all that read will enjoy.
