    We lived in Seattle for a few years in the late 50s on Mercer Island—had deer on the island then. Our Kathy was born in Swedish Hospital. Outside of Boeing, a very quiet community then. Enjoy your trip south and time in SFO with Dimmie. Looking forward to the final legs of you sojourn— God Speed!! John T.

    I have recently decided to take the Steinbeck trail when I retire in a few years. My research led me to Greg’s adventure and upcoming book. I’ll be excited to read it!

    Hi there! I have loved reading this blog – thank you for sharing. I too will be doing a bit of Steinbeck research. I’m a secondary English Teacher from Australia and tracking some of the great American novels. Any advice for me on my roadtrip adventures @whartonag

      Hello Alex,
      Thanks for commenting. I would recommend my book, available on Kindle (Travels With Max: In Search of Steinbeck’s America Fifty Years Later) because it makes a great companion to Steinbeck’s TWC and might save you some wrong turns. My other bit of advice. Make no appointments or reservations. When you see a sign for the Bible and Rifle Church (as I did in Kansas) you must have all the time you need to explore it.
      Best of luck. Tell me how else I can help.
