Interesting new book. Ten Million Steps on Route 6: A Fresh Look at America and Americans by Joe Hur by AGM on 3 July 2012 4:11pm
 
I haven't read it yet, but I want to. Mr. Hurley walked from Provincetown, Massachusetts to Long Beach, California. When he walked through Ohio, he passed just a half mile north of my house. 8o Days passed just five miles north of my house. I must live very close to the main route to somewhere :).

Outside my front door, wherever I have lived there has been the route to an interesting and unknown wonderful place.

when you read this, open your own front door, see... you have a similar route in front of you.

I know Route 6 between Cape Cod and Indiana. I will have to read this. Thank you.

You're welcome,tucsonmike. Hope you enjoy it.

AGM... I will be looking out of my front door at the end of the year... Asia perhaps? USA/Canada? Australasia? or maybe somewhere different, one of the RTW tickets sounds appealing as I wan to spend another 12-24months travelling.

You always make me feel so envious John (in a nice way). I've mentioned you and your wee missus to Margaret and the fact that you've grabbed life by the horns and enjoyed it.

Wow, Wheelrim, may I live vicariously through you :)? Haven't left Ohio for about three years, and that was only to go next door to Indiana. I have very little courage and even less money, but that's ok.

Good post AGM. John (wheelrim) could give you tips no doubt. Travels don't need to be of any great distance. I've never visited your country but I'm led to believe that it's very diverse. Visit your neighbouring states and get to appreciate what I'm sure will be different from Ohio.

I live in Scotland, which is a small country but the people throughout it can be quite different. As for our neighbours, the English....they are a different breed. ;)

Thanks, johnnyBgood!. There are places in Ohio even where I would love to go, and I would LOVE to visit Scotland. I'm Scotch-Irish.

LOL AGM, I've just chided someone on Facebook for using the term Scotch ! Scotch is whisky. We are Scots or Scottish. I hope you manage to visit my country some day.
