Leaving on a Friday morning in the middle of July headed for one of the most popular summer vacation destinations in the country was bound to be an exercise in patience. Google said I could drive from Southern Virginia to Bar Harbor, Maine in about 15 hours. It took 25 hours bumper to bumper through D.C., Baltimore, Philly, across the George Washington Bridge (at 5 miles per hour), through New York City and on to Maine.
I’d never explored Maine and didn’t realize it dubs itself “Vacationland”. But now that I’m here, I can definitly see why.
This is not the sort of walk across America where the goal is not necessarily to arrive from point A to point B. It’s a new lifetyle, for now, where walking allows time and space to meet the ground and the sky, and the people who dwell in between; and through the process, introduce America to Natural Law.
