With 2015 behind us along with so many of the amazing people I have met in other states, I have been thinking what I want to accomplish with this brand new year. When I began my journey with the goal to travel to every state in the U.S., I didn’t allow myself enough time. In other words, I got started late.
Since last year, I have traveled to Florida, New Orleans (I wonder what happened to the Old Orleans), South Carolina, Georgia, New York (Old York?), Alabama and many other wonderful states and cities and people I have met within them.
My new goals for 2016 are to travel along the west side of the Country. I want to visit places I’ve always had questions about and answer those questions for myself. For example, how much rain does Oregon and Washington get? Which state gets the most rain? I’m taking the advice of Arturo Alvarez Demalde who once said, “It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?” or at least that’s the first I have heard those words. They make sense.
This new year is full of promises, but while I come up with places I want to visit, I’m currently on the way back home to Nebraska. In order to prepare for another long journey, this time to the west, I have to make a visit to my home base to load up on supplies. I hope you are ready to follow along with these adventures as I travel.
At dawn, we ride!
