About this blog

Again the following entries are taken from my hand written journal. It was three years after our first trek. This was to be a blitz across the country and back for Hunter's memorial.

By this point I had been living in the woods for two years in Maine having been fed up with the city lifestyle. I had just sold my house in the woods and decided to return to the city and undertake a Master's degree in SW. My outlook on people and life had changed dramatically over the three years.

We both had little money, and choose camping in the flat bed of the pickup as the most efficient method of sleeping for our way out.
