Everybody talks about how they’d love to go on a cross-country motorcycle trip, with nothing but a motorcycle and a tent, to see North America for months at a time. I did that. Not once, but twice, in the early 1990s. I had a great time, and I learned a lot. As J.R.R. Tolkien pointed out, all who wander are not lost. I knew what I was doing (or, at least, I thought I did at the time) and I had wonderful experiences that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I also wasted a lot of time and effort, but I’ve forgotten about most of that. I remember the wonderful experiences. Life is funny like that.
