My college experience started and ended at the University of New Mexico. It was a great school and it was really affordable in the 90’s. My goal was to become a high school English and Drama teacher. Ah, those best laid plans… I remember being in a big lecture hall thinking “I am sitting here, listening to this man spout out and making me memorize things from a book written by a different man whose experiences may or may not have anything to do with my life.” as I started to doze off.
Needless to say, I didn’t last very long in college. I was a person who had to go out and experience life on my own. My path was leading in the direction of working with people and what better way to do that than to travel? My friends and I made it a point to day trip whenever we could and as the opportunities arose, we adventured farther and farther.
