As I sit in my Chicago hotel room starting this post after weeks and weeks of #RoadTripMore procrastination, I am in the midst of a 17-day work road trip from LA to CHI to NYC and back. I’m closer to the end of this bottle of wine than the end of this gig. I’m feeling tired, loose and absolutely, positively, extremely optimistic.
Road Tripping Again
Hitting the road again has had the same effect a spritzing of gasoline might have on a few eager embers. I’d been craving another lengthy drive from west-to-east, what with looking through pictures from the GoPro I hadn’t looked through since May 2014, and feeling a little too settled in LA.
If you follow Glass Duffle Instagram, it’s reasonable to posit that you’ve recognized the recent resurgence in our #RoadTripMore posting. The road is always calling and traveling again has me reinvigorated to answer.
Revisiting My Favorite Roads
What follows isn’t an account of my travels, though months ago when I first planned #RoadTripMore, I wanted Part 4 to be a literal retelling of my trip from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles and all the fantastic stops I made and people I was able to see in between. RTM 4 is not an exact chronological photo essay from my hometown to my new town… though I think I came pretty close with the order of things.
Rather, it’s motivation to get out there and see the planet for yourself. The world is big. Be bigger!
Give yourself up to something that you’ve never seen outside of the pages of Glass Duffle and the internet-at-large. America is a beautiful country that many Americans never really get out and see. Be more than just an American/world citizen. Be a discoverer. There’s plenty of room for everyone, I promise.
