So, the latest bout of wanderlust was triggered by the grim and grey scenery. As I drove along through the depressing landscape I glanced down and saw something sticking out of a side pocket attached to the passenger's side of my center console.
"What's that?" I wondered.
It was a map of Missouri. We haven't been through Missouri in a year and a half. It's been in my car all that time and I never noticed it.
On the front it says, "Official Highway Map - 2010-2012". Hmmmm, I guess all road changes and construction must cease for two years so that the map can remain accurate for two years! What is means to me is that I can plan a trip, if only in my mind.
I want to be this car.....
Heading down the highway behind that semi. I would love nothing more than to open a map and pick a spot.
Just go where my whim and my cash takes me. This area looks good, the Mark Twain National Forest. Good as any spot.
I'd just have to get off that main highway, head down County Road J and head west on County Road K which leads me to Wilderness, Missouri.
That sounds good to me. Just a change of scenery because we're going stir crazy with cabin fever and certainly southern Missouri is warmer than here.
Dreaming about leaving is sometimes just enough to give yourself a respite.
NOTE: One good thing about having most of the house in a uproar. It puts you on a tear to clean out closets and places that you can put in order while the rest is in chaos.
