This has been a messy summer, and due to certain events, my 2012 road trip had to be put on hold. I will not only be delaying the trip, but I’ll be chopping it up into smaller routes that will be more manageable in terms of time. All of these mini-trips are a lead up to the finishing of my creative nonfiction novel, Dispatches to America. SO, I’ll be brave and layout the times for the future trips now and cross every appendage on my body that none of these plans change.
This Labor Day weekend I’ll be heading into Ohio to revisit the town of Clyde, the inspiration for Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio.
In the beginning of October I’ll be traveling the Missouri-to-Texas sections of Route 66.
Thanksgiving weekend will see dispatches from Chicago, Illinois.
And finally, for 2012, the Christmas season will see dispatches from Connecticut.
If anyone has an idea for a specific place I should visit on any of these trips, please leave me a comment.
Look for my first post the night of August, 31st.
And now, later.
