We’re officially out of the Sunshine state and have crossed the border into Arizona. I’ve been on road trips before, but with the exception of stopping for gas and food, I’ve never have stopped by in those towns and cities and actually talked to people.
I’m really looking forward to speaking with folks really outside my circle of experiences — not to understand their political views, but to hear stories about their childhood. I remember hearing from Mike that while some people think they would be the same wherever they go, but the environment plays a critical role in human mentality. Meeting people where they are, in their towns and communities, will hopefully help me garner a better insight and understanding into what that environment actually is.
