For the third-time since World War I — in light of recent deaths in Mexico and cases confirmed across the globe — many Americans have become concerned with the possibility of a swine flu epidemic. Type A influenza, sometimes called the Spanish flu or swine flu, killed more than 50 million people worldwide in 1918, shortly after soldiers returned from a war that killed about 50,000 U.S. soldiers. The swine flu reappeared in this country in 1976 causing widespread panic after the death of one soldier and severe respiratory distress for 13 other soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J., according to information provided on the national Center for Disease Controls’ web site.

In 1860 Sir Richard Burton, the famed British explorer, departed for Africa to discover the fabled source of the Nile. As a child, I was fascinated by Burton. I read his biography, “The Collector of Worlds.” Edward the VII, the eldest son of Queen Victoria, was once asked, “If you can be anything, what would you be?” Edward immediately responded, “I would be Richard Burton.” Sir Richard spoke to our very core, our need for adventure, with all its requisite danger and wildness.

Part 3 ? Just like a band of gypsies we go down the highway, following a setting sun, and heading west to Cali-forn-i-a. We are on the road again and frantically I scribble a myriad thoughts about this journey, an adventure for students learning history, wilderness skills and maybe even a few things about themselves.
