I took my American wife to see Chester on our way to the Lake District. I cannot say that she enjoyed either experience. I enjoyed both, but that is not the point in travelling. The point is to enjoy it with someone or it is just a journey and journeys are never fun unless you talk to the characters on the journey.

When travelling one can never solve the mysteries of why one takes a particular route. I took my daughter from Houston to New Orleans last week, straight run about 7 hours. We came home the long way through Vicksburg just to show her the country. Her opinion, Dad next trip let us do Paris. Vicksburg has a huge National Park for a major Civil War battle, she thought it was boring and I got lost, it is so big.

In Vicksburg they hand dug caves as Morris Shelters, and that reminds me of that great book, Post D.

As we drove across Louisiana I reminded my daughter that it was about 56 years since the death of AR - I told her about hearing it on the ABC news in Australia. Early June '66 from memory and she said "Who?"
