This is one of those things that is on both the “to do” list and the “done did” list. Seems to be on a lot of people’s lists as well. It’s almost a part of American culture or at least the college student rite of passage.
Being a vagrant (even if you are in a car) is mind expanding. there are no expectations, only surprises. The mind is open to fully recieve all the stimuli that comes your way.
I have often thought that it should be possible to retain this mind set when at home. To be a “traveller in your own backyard.” I have never done it successfully. So… I’ll just have to take another road trip to recapture it.
