Someone check the Appalachian Trail: South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford skipped a meeting with a top economic adviser and traveled out of state with his wife on Wednesday, in an apparent attempt to patch things up in the wake of his affair. Sanford’s spokesman Joel Sawyer was put in a familiar and awkward position, refusing to tell the media where the Sanfords went. “The trip is personal in nature, and we’re not going to offer any further comment,” Sanford said. He did say that the couple is “out of state but in country. “ The trip is scheduled to last a week.
