Where I've been


"I'm just a-wandering on the face of the Earth" - the Moody Blues

I've been a lot of places, and I'm NOT an army brat to justify it. Even before I had a driver's license, I'd been to 11 states, and been in international waters (which is outside any country). I'm constantly amazed at all the cool places I've been, things I've done, stuff I've seen, and people I've met, and in the coming months, I'll be sharing some of what I've discovered with you.

In the meantime, I'm going to show you on the map where I've been, and as my travels expand, I'll be updating these maps, so check back here once in a while.

My travels have come in four broad phases: before I got a driver's license, after I got it but before I joined the Navy, after I started driving a truck, and the fourth phase will be after I stop driving a truck, a point in time that is rapidly approaching.

Being in the Navy did wonders for allowing me to travel the world. I was a bit hesitant to go on my Med Cruise in 1999-2000, but fortunately nothing bad happened to us. God must've been watching over us, because it was very quiet over there for the coming of the new millennium. I got to do a few things that are generally not possible, or dangerous to do, because it had quieted down for a little while.

Being a truck driver has likewise expanded my travels throughout this great country of ours. Before then, most of my travels were between Indiana, Florida, and Mississippi, with occasional detours to go see something interesting. Since then, though, I've been throughout most of the states I've been in, to most of the major cities, and I've traveled along around 80% of the interstate system, with a considerable number of states in which I've driven every mile of interstate they have.

In the future, I intend to visit every state, territory, and national park in the Union, every continent (though I don't like the cold, so my visit to Antarctica will be short), and possibly every country, though as there are a lot of disputed areas and new countries, some of them will have to settle down and play nice before I'll grace them with my presence. I also plan to sail every sea and ocean.

Enjoy the maps, and enjoy the journey!
