My first year in High Point was 1961. I was in the 6th grade. The Wanderer made it to the top of the charts in December 1961.

I remember going to a party at the house of my first friend in High Point (it was about 2 blocks from my house). This kid and I looked alike, and had other similar traits – perhaps moreso than any other acquiantance. I don't remember his name, maybe it was Terry? Something close to my name.

They were playing records at the party this song came up. He and I did a lip-sync to the song as the other kids looked on. …

I was also dancing at this party, both of which – lip-syncing and dancing – were very unusual for me (to be as uninhibited).

 

Anyways, the song stuck with me, and was always a favorite, and when I'd hear it playing I'd remember some of the reasons that I can relate to the song.

Having already moved so many times was certainly one factor.

Coincidence with hexagram #56 – Lü / The Wanderer

Connection to information seen about "Wanderers" in relation to types of incarnated beings on Earth.

Oh well, I'm the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around-around-around

Oh well, there's Flo on my left and there's Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl well, that I'll be with tonight
And when she asks me which one I love the best
I tear open my shirt and I show her "Rosie" on my chest
'Cause I'm a wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around-around-around

Oh well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
A-with my two fists of iron, but I'm going nowhere, aah
I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself I'm a-fallin' for some girl
Yeah, I hop right into that car of mine
I drive around the world
Yeah, I'm a wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around-around-around

Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine
Drive around the world
'Cause I'm a wanderer, yeah a wanderer
I roam around-around-around-around-around
'Cause I'm a wanderer, yeah a wanderer
I roam around-around-around-around-around

Tuckerman's Ravine

I skied here two different times – spring '68 and spring of '69 – both years were years of exceptional snowfall, with a record 566.4 in (1,438.7 cm) during the 1968-69 season. Not nearly as many people were skiing as is evidenced in these videos.
