Go! Travel! Get out there, see the sights, meet the people, and have some fun. Acquaint yourself with just how big and varied the world still is. Get out there quick, before the gas dries up, the freedom goes away, and all of the people and places merge to become exactly alike. Don't just read about it, do it. Do it now!
Pictures, experiences, thoughts, and narratives of freedom, travel, places, times, and people.
I had some difficulty in deciding upon how best to organize this section, and will probably reorganize, yet again in the future. You must forgive me if the organization is a bit arbitrary here. You may find much repetition of material in this section, particularly of the photographs. I do hope that it does not become dull or objectionable. I have placed links to some of the more interesting locations, just below. Full trip logs are at the bottom of the page, and though there will be repetition of material, the trip logs will contain many details, not included on the other pages.
Time does not remain still, and places are always subject to change. It is, after all, a very dynamic world out there. Do not expect to find the same things that I have found, repeat the journeys that myself or others have taken, or find the things that the guide books tell you are there. Instead, look for your own journey, your own places, and your own memories. Take a little piece of every place that you visit, back with you, and leave a little piece of yourself in exchange. That's the way to travel.

a former SAC airbase.
|A second Journey to the Southwest October 2006||A decision to visit the Trinity Site, on one
of it's semi annual open houses, turned into a journey of contrasts, with
big cities, little towns, festivals, mountains, plains and deserts. I saw
caves, underground missile silos, and old west museums.

In the meantime, I got to see the birthplace of the Louisville Slugger,
Colonel Sanders, and Muhammad Ali. Talk about contrasts.
