And so I try again ...
This is an idea I had many moons ago. Unable to afford travel, I decided to travel the US virtually.

This is a work of fiction.

The places exist. The weather may be correct for the place and time. But what is written as my experiences there are just in my imagination. I haven't been to these places except on the 'net.

Like Tom Hanks in Castaway, I refuse to spend the time talking to myself. So I have created a traveling companion. Her name is Kait and for purposes of my journal, she is my cousin. To help me (and any readers visualize), she is younger than me by about 12 years, extroverted, enthusiastic, a touch adventurous, prone to impulse and a child like lack of inhibitions. By that I don't mean that she gets drunk and dances on tabletops, but that she will walk a curb like a balance beam and skip down the street if the mood strikes. I will allow the reader’s freedom to address physical characteristics.

I find it easier to write if I can visualize my “home”. So I have chosen a rig (called Geri). However, my experiences with the rig are still in my imagination and cannot be used as an endorsement or review of the products chosen. The 2017 Gateway 3750PT was chosen simply because it has 2 bedrooms, each with queen beds and 1.5 baths. I found one that had 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, but liked this layout and the second queen a little better. We will pull with a Silverado 2500 HD. Why – cooling seats. enough said.

To make this trip easier, neither Kait nor I will be afflicted with any medical issues (including the ones I actually have) or financial concerns. After all, it is fiction.


This is fiction.

Mostly this is for me. But others can read and comments accepted from those who join in the story.
