You don’t do it for this, but…

visit all 50 States
A short detour on the way to Memphis airport ensured #50 was crossed off the list.


Rented a car to drive to Arkansas. Didn’t need a car, so i canceled it.

Tried to run across the bridge to Arkansas. Dead end. No luck.

Left Peabody Memphis late, but still had time for Lee to drive across the bridge to visit the 50th state.

While the final state was a big (unimportant) milestone, the standing ovation far outweighed it. To have hundreds of people feel something special (hope and enthusiasm) when you finish speaking is a blessing.

i told the generous audience, “If that was for me, too much. If it was for Walt and Lee (Cockerell), it was too little.”




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
