a strong desire to travel.
"a man consumed by wanderlust"

I absolutely love to travel. I joined the Navy to "see the world" and while I didn't travel quite as much as I hoped1, it was a huge change from growing up in the 'burbs. But it came in handy when I met the love of my life and I wasn't out to sea on 6 month long deployments. Plus, I did get to see much more than I might have had I not joined the Navy. As I've gotten older, I've been lucky enough to have a steady career that allows me to take time off to rejuvenate and travel with my family.

Now, I try to take advantage of any opportunity or excuse to travel somewhere or at the very least take a road trip. When I first met my wife, we lived in a shitty little apartment with shitty roommates and so we were home as little as possible. I'm a big fan of road trips. Sometimes we would just jump in the car, pick a direction and go. We would drive until we felt like we were "there".

The last two years of Covid made traveling difficult. Because of   lockdowns, Covid variants, and so much of the country in disarray from  fires,  flooding,   tornadoes the effects of the last two years made it that even if we weren't afraid of dying of Covid and didn't care about a very real possibility of   World War III, a lot of things are either not fully staffed, or just not operating at 100%.

We took a (very) few trips during the first two years of the pandemic and the time between 1/22 and 5/22 included pretty much zero travel farther than random trips down the coast. I’m READY to GTFO!

Hopefully, this area of my garden will grow the fastest! :)
