One Year Later: I’ve Forgotten All About You

One year ago today, I watched the sun rise over the rim of the Grand Canyon. It was the start of a road trip without limits. I had no idea when or even where it would end. One year later, now settled in Charlotte for the last three months, I’m still thinking a lot about that road trip. A day doesn’t go by when the skyline of Chicago or the shores of Maine or the volcanic waters of Crater Lake don’t flash like lightning […]

Weekly Web Wanderings: Bieber Carpools & New Hillsong

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! FUNNY James Corden. I feel like I post his stuff every week, but it’s just so good. Last week he played dodgeball with One Direction; this week, he does some carpool karaoke with Justin […]

How to Find Home

I wandered over to Chattanooga for Memorial Day weekend. I filmed some exploits at North Carolina’s DuPont State Forest en route to Tennessee. Be on the lookout for that fun video soon. Hiking the trails at DuPont and camping out that night gave me a real return to #RunningTo. It was a whimsical wandering among waterfalls that left me longing anew for my now deceased journey. My new home of Charlotte has often left me staggering like a drunken vagrant unsure of his left and right. It’s […]

My Soul Song

Sometimes your ink is dry. Sometimes the keystrokes won’t come. Sometimes your soul needs a break. Sometimes a song better translates your heart. Maybe sometimes the Holy Spirit likes to dance on different wavelengths.

Weekly Web Wanderings: My Second Chance Survivor Ballot!

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! SURVIVOR So, I’m a huge Survivor fan. I’ve been slowly working out this unhealthy obsession for 15 years, but now I’ve become unhealthily obsessed all over again. The upcoming fall season will be a “Second Chance” […]

I Don’t Want to Be Your Hero

I saw Boyhood while #RunningTo took me to a coffee shop in High Point, North Carolina. I watched all 166 minutes of it on my laptop. I’m sure the baristas were wondering what in the world was with that bearded wanderer who kept erupting into teary hysterics. I could write a dozen blog posts about the film itself — the simplistic plot, the real-life aging of all the actors, and comparisons to my own boyhood. Maybe someday I’ll write those other blog posts. Today I want to focus on […]

28.2 Road Trip Travel Tips

Over the course of my 282 days on the road, I built a list of 28.2 road trip travel tips. I gathered some of these valuable tips from other wanderers who’d trekked before me; many others, I learned as I went. I wanted to share my list with you for whenever the road beckons your name as it did mine. Whether you travel solo or with others, and whether you embark on a week-long journey or more of a year-long quest, I want you to uncover the most epic […]
