On the road. Discovering who This New Man is.
January 11, 2013. Barstow, Arizona. The cold spell is freezing most of the Southwestern US, adding a chill and needle pains to my fingers and toes. We find ourselves staying in camping cabins, hotels, on the sands of the desert, even stuck in the unexpected snows about the Grand Canyon (GC).
Gusty winds of change were in the air day after day. What’s with the guys and their wears? There is a story here.
The men we met in the smaller towns were often gathered in Starbucks or local coffee joints. WiFi binds them. Most of these talkers were snowbirds that traveled in the winter or who gambled that retirement deserved warmer places. But they were surprised by record temps.
We circled through the South Rim and headed toward cowboy country. There the men all looked a lot like the ancient machinery, buildings, working mines of gold and trails of western living. We found most of the cowboys to be cold, dirty, mostly for show; a dollar per picture, even though theirs were hardly fashion statements.
