    Following you Ben. You gotta read Canoeing with the Cree: Eric Severeid. Journey not unlike yours by this famous newscaster when he was 19…from St Paul, Minn to Hudson Bay…fast read and you would love it and get ideas. He wrote daily journal and was his first published work.

    May God reveal His love and grace.

      I will definitely keep my eyes open for it. There have been little boxes of free transition libraries along the bike path where folks exchange books, maybe it’ll find me! Thank you, prayers for your travels as well.
