Adventures With Dad

Many of the best stories you've sent in over the years are "coming of age" stories - either the ones when you are actually coming of age, or those times when someone in your life decides that its time for you to go through such a ritual. Brad Stoller wrote in to say "The short (version) of the story is my father taking me - at age 12 on a road trip in the mountains of the Big Sur in California" to have an adventure. As Brad tells Dick, he and his father did have an adventure, even if it did seem a bit self-imposed. It involved a lack of planning, food, water, getting lost, and sleeping in temperatures close to freezing, but it's a memory that also contains an unexplained bit of magic.
