One of the great life benefits of doing a long journey on your own without the assistance friends or family, is that you learn to improvise and build resourcefulness that will cross over to your entire life. Living like a hobo (which requires work while traveling to a destination) is what happens when you go on an unsupported journey with the least amount of resources available (hopefully minus the begging!)
A big thanks to my Mom for instilling the power of books into my life from an early age. I remember vividly all the trips to the library and then to the bookstores when shopping malls were the rage. Spending hours in Dalton, Walden, Borders and a host of small independent bookstores were memories that will not be forgotten. An ongoing joke between my Greek wife (Jan) and me is this: I went to bookstores/libraries as a child and Jan went to grocery stores and farmers markets!
