Travels with Buster
I’m reminded today of John Steinbeck’s classic “Travels with Charlie” as I travel in the motor home with Buster. Yesterday Jeanette left Elkton for Chico to help Tony and Maggie get ready for their baby. Today Buster and I began a slow route from Elkton that will take several days to get to Collier State Park where we start our July volunteer jobs. I’m trying to emulate the relaxed self-sufficient style that carried Steinbeck on his journey around the US, and also experience the same energizing curiosity that drove him on. In that same spirit I think I will be having lots of conversations with Buster.
