LIVE TO DIE ANOTHER DAY
SEATTLE, Washington – 
Lately I've been flying a desk. Startups hold an edge of adventure, granted, but nothing like the allure of the road. So my dangermouse fix is literary instead: man wasting away in the Alaskan wilderness (Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild), divers bubbling into oblivion on the Andrea Doria (Joe Haberstroh's Fatal Depth) and voodoo-slain bodies that won't stay dead (Wade Davis's search for Haitian zombie poison in The Serpent and the Rainbow).

But, as Davis says, "you get tired of just books."

Time to traipse again.

  1. Where to next? Exciting stuff, for those of us that are forced to live vicariously so.

  2. Venice, Milan, maybe Rome, New York and the bustling metropolis of Bristol, CT (i.e; over the river and through the woods to grandma's house).
