At certain times in their lives, boys become their Fathers.

And so it has happened to me.

Were that I could be 1/2 as great a man as my Da but I have become him in this way: goofy things please me.

He would really enjoy my quest to stay over night in all 50 states. He would love that I will not just be willing to “drive-thru” a state. Where’s the challenge in that?

So this month, I stayed overnight in Tennessee (woot!) and I am now only 17 states away from my goal!
