About the Author
I'd better present my credentials to write about long term travel. By the time I was in the sixth grade I had changed schools ten times, in six towns in Georgia and Tennessee. You might think a child raised in that way would buy a house as soon as he could afford one and never travel farther than the local post office. Well, no, since then 2 countries, 9 states, 10 cities, 15 houses; 3 kids but only one wife and Janet is enjoying the ride. After all, Ray Charles gave his guidance, "Hit the road Jack." And the Good Book says that the Lord will have us lie down in green pastures, and restore our soul. Several sojourns of ours have qualified. It's the kids who settled, and they'd lived in only 8 houses before college. Then they went to ground, Bill in Salt Lake City, Laura in Philly, Fred in Hollywood. We produced only stereotypes; a ski bum, a Philadelphia lawyer and a Hollywood writer. Sometimes I think the only thing I taught the kids was how to get on an airplane; but if that's the only thing it's a pretty good one. It's not that the kids don't travel, they've been to places all over the world that I haven't but they always come back to home base. In the 15 years since we last owned, a Hilton Head Island condo, Jan and I have rented and stayed for months at a time in five states and a Canadian province; 37 different units; moved over 2 ¼ times per year on average. I am still a business consultant, and when I sometimes stay in a resort town and serve a client, it’s a double benefit. What we have learned can help you too, when you take a trip for a month or a season. An extended trip allows you to learn about a community and an area, dig into events and scenery, meet people and hear tales. And loll; I've had precious few places to hang a hammock since Hilton Head and I miss it. Nowadays I settle for a nice porch and view. And sittin' on a dock in the bay.
