Life has been good since the end of the Sawdust. My fall international trip took me to Austria and the Czech Republic, with a short detour into Hungary and Slovakia. I rented a car (a Volkswagen Passat R wagon) and had a ball driving in Europe - except I couldn’t read any highway signs. Thankfully I brought my Garmin from home which had a full complement of European roads on it.
Prior to leaving for Europe, I spent some time in New Mexico and west Texas, and immediately after returning from my trip to Europe I photographed a Porsche event here in California. Both were great. I also exhibited my photography in three shows - one in New York and two in Marfa, Texas - the Marfa Open and the Chinati Arts Weekend.
Between December and the beginning of the 2018 Sawdust I hope to do at least two more road trips and one international trip. For a road trip, there is the Great River Road that runs along the Mississippi River from Minnesota to Louisiana - which I think could make a great trip, and then possibly re-creating a road trip from one of America’s great writers - maybe Deep South by Paul Theroux or a trip from one of America’s “epic road trip” books.
Thanks, and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any help.
