John McPhee wrote a book titled “Coming into the Country” that described his travels to Alaska, and the many people he met there (although some of the people I met complained that he tended to “merge” people, adding stories from one person to one of his main characters—to keep the story lines cleaner—but to the dismay and anger of some of those who met him)…

I’m on precisely the opposite kind of a journey—leaving the country—heading south in an overloaded 1984 camper van—a repeat of a trip I took nearly a year ago—this time a little slower, taking time to stop for at least a few pictures…

I don’t usually blog in real time, but I’m about half way through the trip, with a campsite with Wi-Fi, too tired to drive, waiting for the van to cool off before we try to sleep in it..
