Day 42 Back to Syracuse for the NY State Fair!
Trip Start Jul 13, 2005
24Trip End Sep 20, 2005
That said, I can't believe that tomorrow we will be rolling into our 7th week of the campaign. We have one last circuit through CT, NH, and ME followed by four days in PA and then back to DC on the 15th. Are we really 2/3 done with this trip? It's so wierd recently having to think about what's next since I've been so focused on the present day to day and have been pushing away any real thought about the future as something way too far out there. It's been such an amazing ride, with all the trials and tribulations that this roadtrip has thrown my way-- I can't believe the end is on the horizon. I'm not so big on finding a job right after (as if that was a surprise to anyone) but I guess if the right opportunity came up I could do it, right? I also don't feel that anxious to go home though I have no idea where exactly I will go from here. I know that I want to stick around to see the leaves change colors and to be continually exploring. Just the other day, while on a run through a little surburban housing development I found myself suddenly out in the middle of nowhere with just the hay rolls and open sky. I felt so excited and at peace at the same time as I discovered this new place. Things seem so different! Anyways, I'm sure post-trip plans will fall into place and for now, we're finalizing our venues for the last weeks on the road and gearing up for the Arctic Refuge Action rally on 9/20 on Capitol Hill. Also, the GreenFest will be in DC 9/24 and 9/25--if anyone will be in the area, it would be AWESOME to meet up for a nice little dose of crunchiness. =)
Mkay, off for a quick nap and run before my turn at the table. Hope everyone is doing well and I'm thinking about you! -Shannon =)
