the thing about squirrels is, they do what squirrels do best....They bust and then Eat Nuts.


Milwaukee.

13 cents shy at the last toll booth....he let me slide. arrived after 19 hours on I-90, I-80 hell-run, rain, wind, some crazy asshole driving the wrong way on a deserted stretch of chicago freeway and aiming right for me,, i digress, the terrible road conditions and the fact that chicago drivers are actually WORSE than New Jerseyites, no easy task, mind you.

so i guess i got all the death defying crap out the way, and can move on to vacation time.

thank you GH, that was absolutely uncalled for, and yet so needed.


it will go in the tank on the tank.


I may have to re-name the bike, "the Haunted Tank".



the scariest thing is, all of this is true, and you know it.

Oh, well, that's what War End had for a plan and as long as we stop at Winnemucca on Thursday to pick up a hastily designed sculpture, I'll be happy.

I guess War End is driving a truck for gAWD, least that's what he told me. Otherwise I wouldn't even go into Reno, I'd just head right to the playa from Winnemucca.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what to wear. Usually I pack desert clothes and a couple of silly things. This time I don't know what to wear for the memorials and the breakfast of mental health champions.

Yeah, a sarong is a good idea. I'm just anxious I guess. The last nerves before leaving home.
