About Peregrine nation

DSCF9416 In 2015 I felt a strong need for a break from my life teaching at the University of Oregon, and at the same time we realized the complete pointlessness of continuing in middle school for our daughter.  The obvious answer was a road trip.  So Greta and I undertook a nine-month, around-the-country peregrination in our 16-foot Scamp trailer, Peregrine.  We drove east to Chatham, then south to Miami, then west to San Luis Obispo, then north to Oregon.   I took a leave from the university, and Greta was home-schooled (road-schooled?) in lieu of eighth grade, while Linda was left behind as a hostage.   We visited friends, cities, architecture, and landscapes, and saw as many adorable animals as possible.

It all turned even better than we had hoped.  Every day was engaging and often surprising.  Greta got to see a range of places, people, lives  and events that just wouldn’t have been possible at home.   Plus we had a hell of a lot of fun.

I also found lots of new barricades to publish on my photo blog, at transitorybarricades.tumblr.com
