I’m in the midst of a 4,000 mile road-trip and am currently in Marathon FL, the Florida Keys. The drive down from Minneapolis took took four days with a six hour sleep in Beloit WI, 36 hour lay-over over in Atlanta GA and then a 20 hour layover in Orlando.
The most grueling of days was the drive from Beloit to Atlanta. 14 hours of driving. At times I was getting loopy. I had to get out of the car at rest stops and do calisthenics. This seemed to get the blood moving and clear my head.. The traffic in Atlanta was nuts, but luckily the iPhone GPS navigator guided me through to my destination 20 miles east of Atlanta.
Driving, I am spending a lot of time in reflection, listening to music I haven’t heard in a while. The visuals of the various tress in stages of fall splendor throughout the Midwest and South has been soothing. All of this has eased my restlessness as of late.
I have a few days here in the Keys, then a few up to Cocoa Beach and then I will begin the journey back north.
