  8. “Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”

  10. I have been photographing our road trips since 2008 when Sandra and I made the move to Arizona for grad school. I have continuously thought about how to put the work out there and finally decided to put it out as a blog for now. Maybe it will transform into something else but for now you can click the link and follow me there. It’s not populated well yet and I’m still working through the statement as I articulate my ideas on the road trip.

  12. I saw in their eyes something I was to see over and over in every part of the nation- a burning desire to go, to move, to get under way, anyplace, away from any Here. They spoke quietly of how they wanted to go someday, to move about, free and unanchored, not toward something but away from something. I saw this look and heard this yearning everywhere in every states I visited. Nearly every American hungers to move.

  15. Since 2008, Sandra and I have been traveling via her 2003 Subaru WRX. We have gone coast to coast several times. Up and down and all around. We have traveled with a pack of doggies on every road trip as well. At times we arrive at our destination and realize how much we enjoy the road. It can be tiring and at times uncomfortable. The doggies can get irritating. But the road is a cocoon of an adventure, in someways leaving the world for a bit, in others observing the cultural and ecological context in which we live. From the ecological, to the man-altered, to the anthropological, being on the road is always a treat.
