on the road again

Over the beautiful Hudson River in the Batmobile (OK, so it's really just a black pick up truck...) and over the Susquehanna, through the deep canyons of blasted rock on I-80, and on into the "Pennsylvania Wilds" I've been. I didn't listen to much on the radio except a few bits of Doc Watson, may he rest in peace. Mostly just the quiet shoosh of the wheels on the highway, and a head full of thoughts and ideas.
As the sun set it gave my hotel room a magical glow, and I've climbed into bed with more reading to do.

How remarkable it is, this network of interstate highways. Really. If I came to pick you up in the Batmobile, where would you want to go? Tell me here in the comments.


  1. I'd like to travel through the Daintree Rainforest area of Northern Queensland (Australia). But we need to make sure it's not the wet season!

  2. It would be wonderful if you took me to the Quilt Festival in Groningen, the northern part of Holland, that'll be held from next June 8th. till 10th.
    You could be my guest in The Zondagssteek's Residence, lay your head on the pillow case I won in your Give Away :>).
    How great pleasure and honour would that be!



  3. I'd go anywhere with you, Karen. I never would have thought to honor those highways the way you just did. Your perspective of gratitude makes "anywhere" a blessing.

  4. aaahhh! many memories...traveling between chicagoland and the big apple...i'd be glad to travel with you, my special route, just the pleasure of the journey. xo tqoe

  5. I'm right off of I-80! We can go to....Santa Fe!

  6. All the national parks in all the nations.....

    Safe and happy travels!
