Limited attention spans may have something to do with that bag of oats that Mule had stashed away. Thanks for finding and sharing, Monkeypoo!

Checking in from the road again.

I've decided to drop in to all the places that Caleb and I were at over the winter to figure out what my feelings are. Seems to be healing for me so I will continue. Spent most of yesterday at Magnuson Park in Seattle.

Last night I was at the Brick Tavern in Roslyn, Washington. I'm not used to walking into bars alone (except virtual bars full of friends) but the Brick is different - its the only place in that town that has free wireless so its kinda like an internet cafe. Anyway, it was nice to be there again and remember the good times Caleb and I shared. Taco Tuesdays were our night to spend there.

Today will be my last visit to a place Caleb and I shared and then I'm on the road home. I'm here at the Pioneer Roasting House in Cle Elum where we spent several hours using their wireless. And perusing their library. Next I'll go to the butcher shop where we bought meat and the natural health store where we bought groceries during our stay here.

Enough nostalgia from me, you kids look after that Goat for me. He's been misbehaving.

As for the bar/bar2 debate, I'm on the road and that usually means either no connection or very high speed connection. At home, I have dial-up and the Bar is a long time loading - as in minutes. However, it did speed up a bit after the last big breakdown and resetting. So whatever the fix was it did make it better.

Next onto Spokane - maybe???

I am enjoying your traveling emails, Deb. Safe trip, friend.
What a nice road trip. I can feel Washington in your posts.
Went camping up there one time for a week. Always wanted
to see an orca. Maybe someday.

Hey everyone;

Heck, I haven't even made it to Spokane yet.

Stopped at a few places on the road - Cle Elum, Ellensburg, then onto George. Just taking my time. Washington is a beautiful state. Bought peaches and apples for eating on the road.

Oh and I also went into the Smith Art Gallery in Roslyn this morning to pick up the art that Caleb had ordered in March. Hopefully that's the last of the strings that I have to tie up. Least I can't think of any others.

Since its dark now, I'm thinking of pulling up for the night at a rest stop to see Spokane in the daylight. When I was 14 we visited the World Fair in 1974 at Spokane after visiting my aunt and uncle in Seattle. Can't really remember much of it except that the buildings of the different countries were very exciting and encouraged me to see the world in a different way.

Hugs to all from the road.

Hey Goathead, the number of malcontents and mothers looking out for you should indicate the level of love you have inspired in the world despite your crusty personality! :D

good morning y'all!

seems to me that before the crash, deb said something about the bar taking about 3 minutes to load, although i think it's a little better now. that sorta hit me, though.

A drink for cryptofishist.

What's up with that "needs security" crap? I saw that when it was first said and your request for clarification (unanswered, as are many other key questions in that thread). That was just downright silly. Nothing I've read would lead me to that conclusion. Desires accessibility, sure, but needs security....wha?

Yeah. He's known me for a few years on the boards and I do tend to argue that the early days of burningman probably weren't all that. I see those days as pretty juvenile, and I don't really pull my punches when old-timers wax nostalgic. Sure, the drive-by shooting range must have been fun. But the whole idea that destruction is freedom doesn't ring true for me. Maybe it's the example of the 19th century Russian writers. In that case censorship caused them to write better. (Okay, in the opinions of some informed critics.) But no limitations just leads to crappy and undisciplened art.
That may be how he parses my reactions. I dunno.

Trip update:

Spent the morning in Spokane - said hi for littleflower.

Then pushed on for the best driving day ever. What a beautiful section of the country to go from Spokane through Coeur D'Alene and then the Idaho Panhandle area. And the weather was perfect.

Figured out the solution to the biggest road problem: talk radio!

My poor old computer needs to get home and get the dust blown out of it. For some reason, it won't work on the battery right now since I brought it out of the desert.

My solution to get access to all my iTunes: The solar panel on the roof of my camper powers an auxilliary battery which in turn powers the 120 AC outlet in the back of the camper. I was using this outlet to make use of my computer when I stop. So I put in an extension cord that reaches the cab and presto, my computer with its iTune library sits on the passenger seat beside me! Plug in an earphone and the road noise melts away.

This is what happens when you lose custody of the iPod in the divorce settlement. :D

Today's road music: Cat Stevens - Tea for the Tillerman, Carole King - Tapestry, Harry Chapin - Greatest Hits, and the whole library of Gordon Lightfoot.

Perfect travel day because they have hot water in the rest rooms of Montana so I filled a bowl and washed my hair outside. Feels fantastic to have clean hair on a day when you don't get a shower!

If all is the Ascendant and you are that, then the concept of something outside of you is an illusion. From the ego there is you and everyone and
everything else. From that level of awareness trust becomes speculative and based on the illusions of fear and the belief in love.

Obviously you put your trust in someone other than yourself when you decided that someone was your teacher.

Playa clean up is coming along pretty good from what I hear.
DPW is back in town, look about the same at breakfast as when they come back in for dinner. :D

The trash along the highway is picked up already. See lots of trucks hauling the buildings, porto's and everything else all heading south for the winter.

Meant to get some pic's this morning but got sidetracked by a coyote.
