Original Post: This was my original Introduction page for my website in early 2016.
Welcome To Stories From The Road Les Traveled
This website was inspired by my wacky idea to visit every state in the continental USA in two separate routes over the course of five months. It was further motivated by my desire to spotlight some encouraging stories and amazing faces and places I experienced along the way - and along the road of life.
To help you navigate your way, here’s some quick links below and some of the ways you can Join me. And if I don’t say it often enough, thanks for coming along for the ride!
How To Join Me On The Road Les Traveled.
What better way to invite you along than with the acronym R.O.A.D.T.R.I.P.?
Ride along. When I can, I will physically put some of you in the driver’s (or passenger’s) seat. But most of you will be far more comfortable joining me via my blogs Trip Chapters, Trip News and Faces & Places, and/or on Facebook, Instagram and future social media sites shown at the footer of this page.
Offer support. I welcome your supportive comments, encouraging stories, referrals for Faces & Places to photograph, introductions to great people, recommendations for resources and your help to Share The Road.
Accountability partners. If you have talking about doing something great in your life and you are finally ready to do it, click on Accountability Partner for help.
Divulge secrets. If you are a fellow traveler, I would love to hear your secrets for saving and making life (and money) simpler on the road. If you are a local, I’d welcome your insider’s info on the best kept secrets to wine, dine and recline. And if you personally know any potentially interested media or business sponsors, I will personally send you big air hug.
Teach me. If you’ve got patience, a sense of humor and mad skills, I would sure appreciate you mentoring me in the various areas I am lacking.
Refer me. I will be earning my keep and travel expenses along the way. So please feel free to connect me with anyone you think might want very affordable photography, copywriting, marketing, training, house sitting, consulting or any of the things I’ve done for these Accounts on my website UltimateImpact.com
Inspire me. The best way you can positively inspire me - and so many others who need it in today’s world - is to share your encouragement, adventures, wisdom and success stories. You may make someone’s day and/or positively change their life.
Pray for me. If you are a person of faith please pray that I have the strength to live out this simple prayer for my trip and for my life: “Lord, please help me humbly use all my gifts to honor you, serve others, and make a difference in this world. Amen.”
Update 2017: As can see by my original Introduction page and by the first 10 Chapters that follow, I had pretty lofty goals for the journey I was preparing to take. And as you will see in the last 10 chapters written after my return, I achieved a quite a few, dropped the ball on many and learned a whole lot in the process. Speaking of the later, it wasn’t until my trip was over that I learned that I should have said I am going to drive to all the "Contiguous" states instead of all the "Continental" states because Alaska is on the North American continent. Oh well. Live, travel and learn, right? :-)
