Your father's book was given to me when I was 21 and going through a rough divorce. Since then "Walk Across America" has been one of my favorite books to pass along to fellow travelers and seekers. Now, at 30, before stepping into a Peace Corps term of service, I'm using a well timed lay-off to travel to some of the places that have always tugged at my heart as offering something real, the thing that sits just below the busy, distracted and comfortable. It's a pilgrimage, in a way: journeying to a point and taking in everything along the way in hopes of connecting down to what really matters and seeing things as they really are. Thank you for so eloquently sharing your intentions and inspirations with the GOOD community. I wish you well on your journeys and look forward to the Jenkins Sequel, Biking through the Americas. From one pilgrim to another: Ultreya!
