30: Not letting it stay in Vegas

As if I, a guy turning 50 and taking his kids on a road trip, would have anything worth hiding on any vacation. So I tell you as much as I can remember. At my age the memory is slipping.

This is a road trip conversation with Caleb. I discuss Cincinnati, where the sidewalks empty around 10, if not earlier. Compare that to Vegas, where they empty at around 10 in the morning.

This is another kind of “hot talk” show. Don’t get used to that.

9: Stranded, Not Lost

In 1973 on a family road trip we had what for me was a milestone moment, one in which we knew where we were and knew that we were nowhere near where we wanted to be. In the dark of a Big Sky night, sunrise seemed a lifetime away.
The second story is about a friend of mine who appeared to be on the cusp of the kind of success he had always sought, when life dealt him a curve that left him stranded. This week’s show is about those moments when we know exactly where we are, and we’d give a lot to be somewhere else. We’re not lost. We are stranded.
