Going Crazy While on the Road

I call it losing the plot, Alex Garland in the book, The Beach continually alludes to this danger, I think about it, I feel it, and there is always a creeping worry.
Will I go crazy?

Here are a couple of comments from people who wrote personal email to me about this real danger. I think they both wrote these comments as something to say, or as or of some sub-conscious knowledge of a real danger.

I have seen many people go crazy from travel, it is not a joke, I am not joking, and this is a real danger.

Peace, Andy. I hope you are doing well. I think often about you and your travels and the times that we met. Keep doing what you need to do to ward off going crazy while on the road

Why do people go crazy? I could write a 225-page book, full of the many ways and real example, I do not know where to start so I will finish.

If you can keep your head when all about you
- Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too; -
