In five short days I leave the North Carolina piedmont which has warmed me, fed me and cuddled with me these last three weeks, to begin the long journey back to the west coast, via my old friend Freight Train- the only way to fly. I plan on traveling via Texas, NM and AZ, my favorite states to write about/admire from the train. Arid landscapes! So strange! Texas cops! So strange! A bench warrant in Arizona! I haz one! Maybe I’ll go to jail? Stressful for me, fun for you (to read about)!
I have a question for you, faithful reader- why so few comments, as of late? Is it because I’ve been stationary, and my writing has turned from adventure travel to the much more pedestrian subjects of reckless advice, sock monkeys and squirrel skinning? Do tell. I wouldn’t want to think that I’ve alienated you all. And if your problem is not that you haven’t been reading my blog but that you cannot, in fact, tear yourself away from it- then maybe you need this baseball bat, to solve your problem once and for all.
