Two buddies go in search of Bob Dylan

We grew up with Bob Dylan. Like many, we have been listening to his records for a half-century. As his musical path meandered, our theorizing, analyzing, and surmising only intensified. A recent film about him proclaimed “I’m Not Here,” so we decided to go find him on a road trip through a broad swath of our country’s landscape, history, and culture.

Eighteen days, 16 states, and 4,700 miles later, we definitely had found some footprints and lots of adventure. We can also confirm that buddy trips — in pursuit of any passion — can still happen in your 60s.
