Trips

Disclaimer and warning:  The adventures below were the result of a intense and ongoing curiosity about the world combined with willingness to be uncomfortable, nauseous, scared, confused, disoriented and otherwise put out.   In order to reach this many locations. I suggest not having children or owning a car, taking only jobs with a month or more annual leave minimum, acquiring gullible or at least tractable friends, devoting at least ten percent of your income to travel and never turning down a good trip offer.

Sube conmigo, amor americano
Besa conmigo las piedras secretas.
La plata torrencial del Urubamba
hace valor el polen a su copa amarila.
Vueula el vacio de la enredadera,
la planta petrea, la guirnalda dura
sobre el silencio del cajon serrano.
Ven, minuscula vida, entre las alas
de la tierra, mientras-- cristal y frio, aire golpeado--
apartando esmeraldas combatidas,
oh, agua salvaje, bajas de la nieve.

-- VIII, from The Heights of Macchu Picchu by Pable Neruda

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errand meet,
And whither then, I cannot say.

-Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Rules of Adventure

1. Perceive, believe (look, see, believe)
2. Stay calm (use humor, fear to focus)
3. Think/analyze/ plan (get organized; set up small managable tasks)
4. Take correct, decisive action (be bold and cautious while carrying out tasks)
5. Celebrate your successes (take joy in completing tasks)
6. Court your blessings (be grateful--you're alive)
7. Play (sing, play mind games, recite poetry, count anything...)
8. See the beauty (remember: it's a vision quest)
9.  Believe that you will succeed (develop a deep conviction that you'll live)
10. Surrender (let go of your fear of dying: put away the pain)
11. Do whatever is necessary (be determined; have the will and the skills)
12. Never give up (let nothing break your spirit)

After that we came to a place where there were men without heads.
 They were hairy, wore skins and ate fish; but they spoke with human voices and
used their own language.  They used to hunt fish in the nearby sea and brought them to us;
others collected mushrooms for us each of which weighted 25 pounds.
 We saw a large number of seals crawling about on the land.
Our friends urged us to turn back, but I was reluctant
because I wanted to see the end of the world.

I never had been away from home and that word "travel" had a seductive charm for me...
Pretty soon he would be hundreds and hundreds of miles away on the great plains and deserts,
and amoung the mountains of the Far West, and would see buffaloes and Indians, and prairie dogs,
and antelopes, and have all kinds of adventures, and maybe get hanged or scalped, and have ever such
a fine time, and write home and tell us all about it, and be a hero.

--Roughing It by Mark Twain
