Here's a quote

from Ralph Grizzle, a reporter who wrote about Charles Kuralt:

"Kuralt preferred to travel America's backroads, slowly and serendiptiously, realizing that travel is often what comes between point A and point B.

"'It was hard for me in the beginning to get over the perfectly understandable idea that you had to have a destination in mind,' Kuralt said to me. 'We always had the idea [during the On The Road series] of a story that we were headed toward, but after awhile it finally got through to us that we might run into something more interesting along the way. So we never made precise appointments. We'd call and say, Are you going to be home for the next week or two?'"
