This Father’s Day, as a special tribute to my Dad, I would like to share some of the valuable lessons I’ve learned from him over the years about traveling:
1. Don’t bring so much flippin’ crap. You don’t need it.
2. Never ask anyone for directions, just see where the road takes you.
3. Forget all those new fangled gadgets. Nothing is better than a real map.
4. If you don’t have any luck at this fishing hole, move on to the next one.
5. Roll down the windows and feel the wind on your face. Who cares if your hair gets messed up?
6. Don’t tell your mother you ate chocolate ice cream for dinner.
7. From the zillions of times my dad and I watched Star Wars together: There is no try, only do.
8. And from his Vietnam days: If no one is shooting at you, the situation can’t be that bad.
