    Dirtbag Diaries Podcast: Roll the Dice

    By Fitz & Becca Cahall

    “We started the trip without much of a purpose,” writes Fil Corbitt. “We wanted to be pushed around. Wanted to find something we didn’t know we were looking for. We wanted to take some small chance and see where we landed. And see which side was facing up.”

    But how do you find that kind of serendipity when you only have a week? Fil created a game. Each morning, he and his friend would wake up and roll a single dice. A one meant go north. 2 = east, 3 = south, 4 = west, 5 = stay put and 6 meant to cross the nearest state border. The only rule? No backtracking.

    Today, we follow Fil as he and his friend Brian figuratively and literally roll the dice, and see where they land. And which side is facing up.

     


    Listen to "Roll the Dice!" from The Dirtbag Diaries.

     

    This episode originally aired as a six-part series on Fil’s awesome podcast, Van Sounds. We cut quite a bit of material to turn it into a single piece. You can listen to the full version of the Dice series as well as other awesome travel stories, like the Freight Train episode, at vansounds.org.
