Literature often describes places we are curious about, regardless of whether we know them or not. This blog maps the journeys laid out in selected books and offers reflections corresponding to the various stops. Happy traveling!

My Photo

I was born in Eureka, California and adopted when I was 2.  I grew up in Fort Bragg, California, and graduated high school in 1982.  I finished a BA in English at Santa Clara University, and then did two years of volunteer service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in inner-city Milwaukee.  I lived in Milwaukee from 1986-1995.  I got married in 1995 to Megan Kamerick and moved to San Antonio, Texas where I worked for a non-profit organization while I picked up an MA in International Relations at St. Mary's University.  In 2000, I started a Ph.D. program in Political Science at the University of New Orleans and we lived there until 2004.  Megan accepted a job in Albuquerque 2004, and we have lived there up to the present.  I completed my Ph.D. in 2008 and am currently working at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

I really like the postings, but the KMX file that shows up looks to be old. Is there are more recent file? I wanted to see the spots in LA.

I think it's great that you get some traction on your blog, people really seem to care.. The best meter for this is that one gets comments!

It's really hard to read those comments though, there's not much functionality built into Blogger... Have you seen Intense Debate? It's a commenting system that will revolutionize the whole sphere, with profiles that follow you from blog to blog, threaded comments, and much more! If you'd like to give it a try I have some invite codes to give out, here's one that works exclusively for your blog (don't pass this link on to someone else!):

I'm looking forward to more blog entries and updates for "On the Road"! Just looked at the KML file in Google Earth and realized the rest of Sal's Part 1 journey is there (I'm in Virginia for Christmas with Sal and Dean at the moment). Thank you for this great work!

Hey. This kinda strange but I found your blog when i was searching for a map of sals journey across the US. I started reading your blog and I just wanted to ask you a few questions about traveling.

You seem to be an avid trip taker and you also seem to value the same kinds of experiences as I do so I think it'd be fantastic to pick your brain on a few topics.

Do you have an email address or something I can contact you at?

Mine is
