I travel quite a bit, perhaps more with the Chapter and York Rite College than Blue Lodge these days. Traveling is really one of the best parts of Masonry. When you bump into someone you haven't seen in a while, and it's like old home week or a family reunion, it is a fun time. It seems like people don't travel the way they used to 20 years ago, and that's a shame. Those who don't are missing out.
I, too, would caution against doing too much, especially early in your career. It's fun, but you can potentially burn yourself out. I think of it like the time my mom made me a Key lime pie for my birthday; I sat down and ate the whole thing, then I didn't touch Key lime pie for about two years! If you eat a little bit at a time and occasionally sneak you a bigger slice, it's a lot more enjoyable over the long haul.
