Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: The Power of Rural Travel

29 09 2020

It has been a while since many of the magazines I normally write for have put anything out in print. Slowly and carefully, however, things are coming back online. My latest for Northwest Travel & Life Magazine is about one of my favorite forms of travel, which might also be one of the safer forms available to us at the moment. But beyond the inherent benefits of fewer people and wide-open spaces, rural travel has so much more to offer. It’s on newsstands now, or click here for the PDF version.

I discuss some of my favorite in-car adventures on my latest Afternoon Live appearance. Click here to watch the segment.
