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. ”
Flipping through the last five years, like a kid eating cotton candy, it isn’t hard to see how travel,writing, and picture taking grabbed me like a big hungry crocodile.
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 room in a modest local guesthouse feeding the landladies cats as the sun goes down into the ocean.
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.
I will smile back and sweetly say, ” Tomorrow is the day. ”
