Default America the Beautiful

How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,
Who says to Zion,
"Your God reigns!"
Your watchmen shall lift up their voices,
With their voices they shall sing together;
For they shall see eye to eye
When the Lord brings back Zion.

Isaiah 52:7-8

Sensational travelogue. Maybe at the end of it you can enlighten us about the somewhat cryptic comments above.

I'm sure, as are all others, that recall Charles Garault, CBS, "On the Road Again" weekly segment. You should have been his teacher.

No, please don't. We all know where that sort of things leads on the Internet. Let's just enjoy the trip.

Sorry Bob but I beg to differ. In the very first post of his travelogue Scott Chastain said: "Of all the lessons I learnt in that 5 weeks, none strikes such a chord as the sobering realisation that most Americans have absolutely no idea what's coming. But come it will."

It is obvious from this statement that Scott had an epiphany as a result of his travels. Some may be satisfied with the superficial aspects of his journey while others may want to know what Scott deduced as a result of his experience.
