Adventure versus Safety and Security

Paul Salopek, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and contributor to National Geographic magazine, is walking around the world! 21000 miles in seven years! He is early in his journey but has already noticed how bound humanity is to cars loosing directional sense and many other common sense skills. He calls this loss Car Brain. His observations include how most drivers miss the celebratory opportunities of small towns and villages as well as countless other cultural experiences! Comically, it is society’s “marginal people” as he writes in the Sunday Review section of The New York Times, that help him “find his way across the planet.” Good luck Paul. I wish you well!
