a good read

Not very long ago I read this book and had intended to tell you about it but kept leaving it off my recent posts.  It was free on my kindle, and if you click on the link you might still be able to get it free but check the details.  It might also be in your local library.  It is a fascinating real-life story of a man's trip from the west coast to the east coast without spending a cent.  Do you think you could do that?  I'm thinking I would probably not make it very far before becoming discouraged, scared, cold, wet, hungry, thirsty, tired, etc.  But he persevered and conquered some fears in the process.  I am a big fan of a road trip, I love to just get in the car and drive without even a destination in mind.  Luckily, I have a husband who goes along with that so we make a good team.  But travel on foot, without any money, day after day?  Probably not going to happen, but I am glad there is someone out there who did it and wrote about it for us!

That does sound scary. The scariest part would be not getting to stop at quilt shops along the way!

You are too funny! I think I could cross the country by hitch-hiking from shop to shop and sleeping on their doorstep, a new sort of shop hop!
