The Travelogues

I often describe my job as the best job in the world, as well as the worst. I have been on the road for over twelve years and flown over fifteen hundred times. I have often thought that if travel makes you a better writer, well, I'm a shoe-in for a Pulitzer. I have worked in every major city in the United States with the exception of New Orleans and Phoenix, and four times as many small towns. I have worked on four continents. What is lost in family time is gained in travel experiences. Perhaps the most valuable aspect of all this is that I travel not as a tourist restricted by time and schedule, but as a traveler, where I meet and eat and laugh and talk with normal, every day people. Their stories are as varied as the places I find them in. The following Travelogues are vignettes of a life lived on the road.
