Road Trip Update
Happy Friday everybody! My bags are mostly packed, & sometime in the early morning gloaming tomorrow I expect to head south on US highway 95 for the start of a road trip that will take me to Dedham, Massachusetts. By Saturday evening, I intend to be well into Wyoming!
The eastbound trip will take me thru parts of at least 15 states—the return trip west isn’t completely plotted out, but I do know most of the eastern leg. On the way east I should be stopping in Wyoming, Nebraska, either eastern Missouri or western Illinois, & then will be spending a couple of days in Columbus, OH; from there it’s on to the borough of Queens, followed by a minor amount of backtracking into the Catskills; & from the Catskills it’s on to Massachusetts. I think there will be a side trip while in Massachusetts that will take me to New Hampshire & Vermont—the state where I was born & raised—before I turn the Subaru again to the west with stops in western Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, PA & possibly Cleveland. At that point, wherever I am, it will be spring by the calendar!
I will have the Regal resonator with me, & will be singing & playing a bit of blues for the folks where my mom now lives. I’m also bringing a laptop & a camera, so there are blogging possibilities—depending on connectivity. Obviously, while visiting friends, some of whom I haven’t seen for over 20 years—blogging won’t be first priority. Still, I think it’ll be fun to blog from the road & will do so whenever it’s possible & fits into my schedule. I imagine my visits to other blogs will be sporadic as best, & likewise probably for responding to comments here.
Under any circumstances, there will be some content on Robert Frost’s Banjo for sure: B.N.’s poems will alternate with L.E. Leone’s on Tuesday thru the month, & Eberle’s Adams County Makes the News series—now with actual snippets from the old papers—will post each Wednesday; & the last poem in my Grace series will be posting tomorrow morning. Otherwise, I’ve left things up for grabs.
& posts are scheduled each Sunday on The Days of Wine & Roses & each Monday on Alcools throughout the month! & don't forget Eberle's Platypuss-in-Boots blog; that'll be up-&-running as usual.
I hope to be seeing at least a few blog friends in my travels—I’m excited about that, as I am about the trip in general. Hope to share it with you folks along the road!
