I can’t imagine anything I’d rather do than hop in a car and take off on a road trip. I developed this habit as an adult -- when I was a child, my family never did the “family vacation” thing. My wanderlust started in my late teens, early 20s. Then, you never knew where I’d end up! My first big road trip took me north into New England, across Maine, and then down into Quebec, Montreal, and both sides of Niagara Falls. After that journey, I was hooked. Since then, I've driven to all of the lower 48 United States. 

I've also become a great navigator in my travels across the country. I discovered that if you look for little red squares on the map, and travel to them, you find many interesting places. The First Pony Express Station, the geographical center of North America, Glacier International Peace Park in Montana (which is on the continental divide), and the spot where the golden spike was placed joining the two sides of the cross-country railroad, are among the natural and historical sites I've encountered through my curiosity. There is so much to see right in our back yards. Even short day trips around Maryland, where I live, or neighboring states, bring me great satisfaction.  I'm ready for a spontaneous getaway in a heartbeat!

I truly enjoyed working with the artists and writers who shared a bit of their own love of travel, and places they’ve been and things they have seen, in this month's issue of Status Hat! I hope you enjoy the paintings, photos, and writing in our “Travel” issue as well!!
