Highway 83

Highway 83

I recently drove Highway 83 through the heartland of America to the Canadian border. Highway 83 is the longest north/south highway in America and Highway 90 is the longest east/west highway. The two highways intersect in Uvalde, Texas, 60 miles from my ranch. My third book will be titled, “Ambushed in America.” The subject of the book will be traveling in America and will contain essays on our great country. Sometimes it is easy to become caught in a stream os pessimism. The 3800 miles I drove through the middle of America restored my faith in our country. Corn fields, grain fields, sunflower fields, cattle grazing and John Deere tractor dealerships in small towns assured me that small town America is alive and well. Granted some of the small towns were somewhat deserted, the land surrounding them was under full cultivation. The attached picture is of me standing on the road near Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. And yes, I am wearing my Navajo coat, the coat that has traveled the world and is on the cover of my second book. More observations on my trip will follow. Stay tuned.
