As a young college writer, sometimes a road trip inspired me. I’ve always enjoyed travel – and I like to get to know my surroundings. The road trip is a fundamental method of ethnographic research. You gotta look for connections and relationships and be open to serendipity. The openness to serendipity works best with early drafts. I learned the hard way.
This road trip to Rock City, just outside Minneapolis, KS opens possibilities for research in: Biology – specifically botany (what is that plant and how does it survive?); African American history re: George Washington Carver – who lived here for a good minute; Geology and more.
And these privies? Solidly built.
So what places do you know of that make a good day trip from the Lawrence/ Johnson county area? Relate the educational merit. Share at http://dixoncomp.pbworks.com/Wht2doNKSwhnURbrd.
