You probably heard your grandparents say, “Every day just waking up is an adventure.” It’s true. Each day is what we make it, and adventure arrives in ordinary packages. So think about the adventures that await you as you get out of bed.
Transportation allows us to seek adventure. It might by boat, plane, or rail. We may expect our adventure to start happening once we get where we are going.
Sometimes just getting to the location is the adventure. While I was driving in my car on the way to Oakland this weekend for an adventurous CCSS meeting, I was not 5 minutes from my house when adventure popped up out of no where. I was driving down a two lane state highway going 60 miles an hour (I know! I know!) when the car in front of me slowed, and moved to the right shoulder. Staring me in the face, a car going the other direction raced towards me driving at least as fast as I was. My heart beat faster than normal as I quickly pulled over as far as I could. My tires skidded in the dirt. Fortunately the car heading toward us must have finished sending his text, and realized the error of his way. My adventure ended safely when the wanderer jerked back into his own lane !
This driver and his horse brave the hazards on the road with little protection but this little red sign on the back of the wagon as they drive the windy back roads and narrow town streets of Pennsylvania.
Sometimes the adventure lies in chance meetings. Hal and I walked up a rustic street in New Castle, DE admiring the old houses, when out walked this gentleman. I asked him if he owned the house. As it turned out he owned half the town, and had lots to tell us. It was a mini history lesson and a great adventure.
