I now feel like I know what it would be like to be a traveling salesman. I just spent 2 days on the road from dawn til dusk, covering 900 miles and meeting with 10+ people in 5 town in Eastern Oregon in preparation for this year's Chautauqua tour. From navigating in new places to eating fast food on the go to living out of a rental car, I felt the experience was just a motel away from the epitome of traveling salesman*.
The upshots: seeing beautiful countryside*, meeting with our partners in great communities, getting back on the road*, and feeling more prepared for tour this year.
The downsides: go go and then go some more, way too much time in a car, not any time to keep up on normal life, and, well, the loneliness.
All in all, a great trip and super helpful to the cause. But next time, I'm taking someone with me and going about half as fast!
