Each winter, I try to make it a point to set out alone for a few days. See new things, open my mind up, do some reading, explore a bit. At the beginning of February, I headed toward South Dakota & Wyoming. I made loads of unplanned stops along the way, slept in dumpy motel rooms, jumped fences & drove gravel roads. I ended my journey by heading toward Chicago before returning home. Eight states, twenty-three hundred miles.
