Making a Break For It

It’s tough to write much today espe­cially since I don’t feel like talk­ing about Brett Kavanaugh — Pres­i­dent Trump’s SCO­TUS pick — or the Left’s nation­wide and 20-​month long tem­per tantrum over los­ing the 2016 pres­i­den­tial election.

What I feel like talk­ing about is escap­ing — yes, from Cal­i­for­nia, if only temporarily.

In Sep­tem­ber and Octo­ber, I have a cou­ple of invi­ta­tions to Mid­dle Amer­ica in a pair of states I’ve never been. Both invites are reunions; one is a USAF meet­ing and the other is a blog­ger meetup. I haven’t done either in years and had almost for­got­ten how much I enjoyed both types of gath­er­ings. Meet­ings of the minds and booze.

Also, I’ve longed to visit a memo­r­ial ded­i­cated to a departed friend — more than a friend — and asked God for that chance. As it hap­pens, the memo­r­ial is in the same state as one of the reunions.

But I can’t ignore the fact that I sense being drawn away from my home state. It feels tem­po­rary, like I’m sim­ply plan­ning a vaca­tion from my beloved People’s Repub­lic of the For­merly Golden State. At least that’s what it feels like right now.

I’ve never planned a vaca­tion before. Because I always had the resources at hand in the past, there was lit­tle need for much plan­ning. This one will be dif­fer­ent in that the resources, mean­ing money, have to be marshaled.

I men­tioned the plan on my Face­book page and now I have about 12 places to visit before I get to the intended des­ti­na­tion. Most of those places are in Texas.

Addi­tion­ally, I plan on doc­u­ment­ing this trip online — as I did with my Kenya trip — but now with a lit­tle bit of expe­ri­ence under my belt. Plus I’ll be the cap­tain of this voy­age. Did I men­tion that I’m driving?

I will keep every­one posted about my plans and about any cam­paigns I wage for this endeavor.

It’s tough to write much today especially since I don’t feel like talking about Brett Kavanaugh — President Trump’s SCOTUS pick — or the Left’s nationwide and 20-month long temper tantrum over losing the 2016 presidential election.

What I feel like talking about is escaping — yes, from California, if only temporarily.

In September and October, I have a couple of invitations to Middle America in a pair of states I’ve never been. Both invites are reunions; one is a USAF meeting and the other is a blogger meetup. I haven’t done either in years and had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed both types of gatherings. Meetings of the minds and booze.

Also, I’ve longed to visit a memorial dedicated to a departed friend — more than a friend — and asked God for that chance. As it happens, the memorial is in the same state as one of the reunions.

But I can’t ignore the fact that I sense being drawn away from my home state. It feels temporary, like I’m simply planning a vacation from my beloved People’s Republic of the Formerly Golden State. At least that’s what it feels like right now. 

I’ve never planned a vacation before. Because I always had the resources at hand in the past, there was little need for much planning. This one will be different in that the resources, meaning money, have to be marshaled.

I mentioned the plan on my Facebook page and now I have about 12 places to visit before I get to the intended destination. Most of those places are in Texas.

Additionally, I plan on documenting this trip online — as I did with my Kenya trip — but now with a little bit of experience under my belt. Plus I’ll be the captain of this voyage. Did I mention that I’m driving?

I will keep everyone posted about my plans and about any campaigns I wage for this endeavor.
