Answer the call of the open road this summer where you get away for the hectic, depleting summer travel woes of air travel. Why not head to North Carolina and travel Route 12 in the Outer Banks. With its 80-mile beach drive full of variety that will eliminate the boredom that comes most road trips. You sense the seascapes and walk in the footsteps of pirates. You’ll travel along meeting places of land and ocean, human activity and wilderness. Get ready for an adventure since you walk where the first white settlers found landfall and Blackbeard the Pirate cast his anchor. You also come close to nature and wildlife with the screech of migrating geese and wild birds zooming overhead.
It’s through our senses that we experience life, and it is through our senses that we can reawaken to a fuller and more authentic way of being. For many us, we’re losing a valuable part of daily living. We’re getting out of touch with our sensory experiences that give us joy. We’re bombarded with over stimulation from visual and audio technology. Don’t we sometimes feel numbness to real feeling, seeing and hearing the real things in our life?
Are you ready to look up from your cell phones and step out into the wild?
It’s exciting. Enlightened people are looking up from their cell phones and stepping out into the wild. John Muir is the one man that people should thank for saving the wild for them to recharge, reawaken, and revive all their senses.
John Muir’s advocacy for nature inspires us today. The John Muir Trail is a testament to his efforts. When you trot down his trail, you’ll start echoing his mantra.

Are you looking for a vacation that takes you to different regions on the globe where you can feel good about yourself?
A trip that includes the following:
You live in a busy world. You fold the laundry while keeping one eye on the kids and another on the television. You plan your day while listening to the radio and commuting to work and then plan your weekend. But in the rush to accomplish necessary tasks, you may find yourself losing your connection with the present moment—missing out on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling. Did you notice whether you felt well-rested this morning or that forsythia is in bloom along your route to work?
