Day 1

Today we indoors and I start making the curtains. I have seven windows to cover and it takes me a couple of days. The curtains do look nice and we now have a total blackout from the sun. This will come in useful for the heat, cold and light. The temperatures are still high in the day, up to 115ᵒF but they actually cool down to about 60 ᵒF at night. I can do some barbecuing here, so we are back to having ...

Got dinner cooked and eaten just before a storm blew in to prove the waterproofness of my bike panniers and tent. It only lasted 20 minutes and now all of the forest scents are concentrated in the air and the birds are going crazy with their songs. This was an awesome ...

... beloved shows: The Rachel Maddow Show, Hardball with Chris Matthews and The Ed Show.

The people we met along the way seemed rather interested in our trip. Some pulled over to offer some cold water and to check if we needed any assistance, especially when they found us resting somewhere along the road. Some we met at restaurants or gas stations. Others had even passed us along the way and commented on that. Thankfully we encountered no antagonizers and trouble ...
