Imagine the feeling of unlimited time.
An adult life in todays world generally means working the majority of our waking hours. Being thrust into a life of uncertainty means making the decision of accepting the open hours or wallowing in self pity.
The luck of the draw left me with the freedom to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted! At times I felt I “should be doing this” or “I should be doing that!”
I soon realized that I had the chance to change my life course. I chose to explore. Now, I’d like to share my experiences with you and hope that you feel the excitement I find when I get out of my comfort zone and discover previously unknown to me roadways, trails and places of interesting historical significance or just plain fascinating.
Road tripping used to involve making mixed tapes, picnic lunches and lots of oddly folded maps. Anyone with a drivers license before the age of 30 probably remembers the art of returning a road map to its original form. Now we have google maps and gps to find our way, fast food restaurants lining the highways and bluetooth music connections to play any style of music our tuned ears desire. I must tell you that one of my favorite purchases is a road map atlas of Wisconsin. I find it easier to read a full page over my phones little gps screen. The bonus being all of the small towns and picturesque highways I’ve found just by picking a spot on a map!
We have bike trails running all over our beautiful state connecting most from north to south and east to west. We have the Ice Age hiking trail winding through multiple forested areas of Wisconsin allowing the brave souls in need of escape extensive miles of woods and wildlife. We have county, state and national highways bringing every corner or the state to everyone.
It’s easier than ever to simply pick a destination, or not, jump in the car, hop on a bike and go where our destiny takes us.
Thank you for taking the time to read my stories.
