Road Trip



In light of the economic realities of 2009, there will be no overseas adventures for me this year. Instead, I am leaving on a rambling back road trip through the Midwest and upper South. I am excited to see some regions of the country yet unfamiliar to me. Strategically-placed friends and cousins in Arkansas, Missouri, Minnesota and Michigan help ease the financial impact of such an undertaking. Visits to monasteries and sketes along the way are planned, and a brewery or two are on tap. Any driving I do is liable to include a genealogical side road, so I will probably find myself wandering through a cemetery or two, as well. To the extent that I have opportunity--and have something to say--I will try to post from time to time.

It doesn't matter where you are, you seem to find something interesting to blog about. Looking forward to it, safe journey!

ah! meandering roadtrips, how i miss them. Took quite a few as a cattle buyer, and college student, when gas was havering around 99 cents.

Minneapolis to Saskatoon is only an added 900 miles or so.. :)

Safe travels, and look forward to hearing about places I have only read about -- the US is a fascinating place in itself.

In your visits to monasteries and sketes please ask them to pray for the now-desolate Monastery of the Descent of the Holy Spirit.
