I have hitchhiked the United States for most of 19 years. I am a Christian and I obey the Lord. I had a book self-published in 2008: High Plains Drifter: A Hitchhiking Journey Across America. I also had a book self-published in 2012: The First Time I Rode a Freight Train & other hitchhiking stories. I graduated from Iowa State University in 1995 with a BA in English Literature. I have been influenced by monastic and pentecostal Christianity.
“Thou must join in with the beginnings of life, and be exercised with the day of small things, before thou meet with the great things, wherein is the clearness and satisfaction of the soul. The rest is at noonday; but the travels begin at the breakings of day, wherein are but glimmerings or little light, wherein the discovery of good and evil are not so manifest and certain; yet there must the traveller begin and travel; and in his faithful travels … the light will break in upon him more and more.”
