Why....

Why? I’ve been thinking why I chose to do my Odyssey Scholars project. You could say I did it because I want to learn more about Mechanical engineering, or I wanted to do something different. You can say that because all of those things are true. But I think that there is an underlying reason I chose to design and build an offroad trailer. I think I wanted a real reason to go out into the wilderness and to explore the country. To explore the immensity of the US and maybe the world. But I have always thought it was fun to travel and go to different places and experience all sorts of different foods, cultures, the amazing beauty of the world, and all of the other experiences that you get when you travel. And if you stayed in your house, went to work, and then repeat, you would never get those exprenceces that I have come to love. And I think that is why I wanted to do my Odyssey project to use it as a way to go out into our big blue world and go see it. Every back road, main road, beach, and cliff. I chose to do my Odyssey Scholars project to see all of the beautiful sunsets that New Mexico will never see.
