“It’s amazing how our bodies know just what to do. I started driving, parked, told my legs to hike, and had an incredible day. Even though I was alone, I didn’t really feel lonely.
I started my van trip by playing “America” by Simon and Garfunkel, followed by the entirety of the Into the Wild soundtrack. I finally graduated into audiobooks, starting Malcolm Gladwell’s David and Goliath. It’s been a great kickstarter for emboldening my often fragile nerves on this trip.”
