Begun in 2014, Scotttreks is a rolladex of Scott’s time travels for those who remember what a rolladex looks like, what it was used for, how it was used, until computers sent them to antique auctions.
Hot on Scotttrek’s trail, I flip back to 2014, to Uruguay, to the beginning. Usually, things that make trips worth remembering and posting about, makes them look even better when I relive them.
In Scotttreks, little moments are everything.There is no crew to blame for screw ups, and, in President Truman’s famous words, ” The buck stops here. ”
I don’t have to drop an atomic bomb to know that when we jump through time and space hurdles,we are moving into God’s territory.
Flipping through the last five years, like a kid eating cotton candy, it isn’t hard to see how travel grabs me and writing and picture taking seem logical.
Somewhere down this travel pipeline, I’ll get past putting things down on paper, leave my phone and computer at home, and sip pina colada’s on a far away beach close to my little spare room in a local guesthouse.
At my most favorite local cafe a dark skinned waitress will smile as she fills my coffee cup and suggest that I get back to writing and taking pretty pictures.
