The odometer for Road Trip 2021 ticks past 3000 miles. Sixteen states, high heat, higher humidity, and the pulse of a culture in decline? No, but perhaps “recline” is an appropriate description. What have we learned? What are the questions I’m being asked and what are my wins and losses? And where is this channel going? Well, I’ve got answers but am just one guy moving solo in a metal box. Don’t expect too much. What I can say with certainty is this. WE MUST DO BETTER as a nation. Smarter, faster, kinder. Drop the political nonsense and party line lies. And for me, I’ve got power issues, time issues, and know that when the temp hits a certain number life in the van gets damn sticky.
