Dr. Rick Dale, professor of Special Education at the University of Maine at Farmington and the author of The Beat Handbook: 100 Days of Kerouactions, has a blog where he posts daily Kerouactions that you can do to keep in touch with your own inner beat. For example, based on Sal's time in "Sabinal," California - on which I wrote a post about Selma, California, the actual town where Kerouac spent time with Bea Franco and whose relationship formed the basis for the Sal and Terry romance - Dale argues that being beat includes eating Mexican food. He pulls a passage from On the Road to prove his point, where Sal, Ponzo, Terry, Terry's brother and his kid eat "tacos and mashed pinto beans rolled in tortillas" at a Mexican restaurant.
Other tecent topics Dale tackles include interconnectedness, priorities, sleep and movies, all inspired by On the Road. In other words, it's a little like Littourati without the maps, and Dale is more succinct, i.e. less verbose, than I am.
