You can follow my journey by browsing to this map. I’ll attempt to keep it updated as I move from one location to another.
I’ve also put together a map of what I was doing before I started traveling like I am now. It covers from January 1, 2000 to May 1, 2018 (I’ve used the first of the month as a starting/ending date, although we both know that this would not be entirely correct). In order for a spot to be included on this map I had to have collected mail there, and in most cases actually held a paying job. If you, too, need a paying job while traveling, I’ve put together some information that might come handy: Working From The Road.
In all of the places I’ve called home through the years I was there for a minimum of one month, most times much longer. I enjoy spending an extended period of time in one place. I have plenty of time to explore the surrounding area, and even meet some of the locals. You will note that the dates are not all continuous. There are several gaps in my timeline. Those are times I was truly on the road. I wish I had kept track of the routes I have traveled and the places I have stopped, but those are for the stories I can tell, and the memories I can smile about.
Most of these entries have been featured in the blog section of this website, but I thought this might be an easier way for you to track my progress. With my forgetfulness this will also make it much quicker for me to determine where I am each day.
Follow a Wandering Fool as he wanders and wonders his way around, lost each morning, only to be found before the light of day makes way for the dark of night.
