My nocturnal thought was to walk across America. This half-cocked plan finally becomes a reality today. My first ride will be hitched with my brother, who will take me as far West as his schedule allows. From there… freedom.
“A man who couldn’t make things go right could at least go. He could quit trying to get out of the way of life. Chuck routine. Live the real jeopardy of circumstance. It was a question of dignity… With a nearly desperate sense of isolation and a growing suspicion that I lived in an lien land, I took to the open road in search of places where change did not mean ruin and where time and men and deeds connected.” – William Least Heat-Moon
