Here’s something I haven’t done in a while – launched myself on successive weeks halfway across a continent with a job to do and a limited amount of time in which to do it. Five cities, five teams in five days over two weeks. What a trip!
The feeling is a lot different than it used to be. In the old days my motto was “Anywhere but Here.” Get me out of here, get me gone, go somewhere and milk somewhere else for all it is worth. Now I have a family left behind struggling with my absence and wishing I was there. Now I keep the trips short and sweet, do the job, pack in as much fun as possible and get home.
So I get to miss my family but still see a lot of beautiful Kansas City, ride up the St. Louis Arch, visit friends in Chicago, drive through Indiana and spend another night in Nashville.
It ain’t all pain and suffering, my friends. Just mostly.
