We drove down to Grants Pass last night after Spanish class. It got dark early, but we got to see a stupendous sunset on the western side of the highway,and some remarkable fog between the mountains on the eastern side. I realized that my limit for living without massive travel has been reached. I've not been on a long distance adventure since March 2007... apparently just shy of two years is my limit. I see a pattern.
I came home from extended roadtripping in late 1999
January 2001 I went to California for a few weeks (via bus)
January 2003 I went to Nebraska (plane)
April 2003 went from NE to IL for a few weeks (train)
May 2003 went from NE to MA for a few weeks (bus)
October 2003 Nebraska to MA (train)
March 2006 (phew it was a long wait) I went to Oregon for a few weeks (via plane)
May 2006 went to Oregon for a month (plane/bus adventure)
August 2006 went to Oregon for a few weeks (bus)
Sept 2006 drove from Oregon to Mass
March 2007 drove from Mass to Oregon.... waiting....waiting...
I need an adventure. Or a life which pays me to have wild adventures....hmmm
