Day 135: Brother

This is my brother, Kevin. He's interning on a farm here outside of Rochester. The farm has a tractor. The farm has a lot of cats. That is all.…

Day 132: Hello, Minnesota!

I have landed at Bob's Trailer Court, which hasn't actually been owned by Bob for at least 30 years. Silly people... I'm now in Rochester, MN, which is one of the largest towns in the state, but still quite small. This was very much not a fun space to get…

Day 131: Back in the middle of nowhere

I've returned to the Midwest, and have departed Colorado to visit my brother, Kevin, in Minnesota.. This is pretty much what I stared at for two days as I traversed Kansas and Nebraska. Dreadfully boring, every minute. Thank God for audio books! :D…

Day 123: Duke Flower Gardens

Today I went with my mom and Lacey to the Duke Flower Gardens. They were scenic enough, though I don't really care for the decadent, excessively cultivated feel of them.…

Day 119: Hanging Rock, NC

I'm back in NC now! Huzzah! Lacey and I went out to the western part of the state and hiked up to Hanging Rock. It was a pretty cool hike, with a nice view. If you go, be sure not to stop where everyone else does - there are a…

Day 115: Trying to get home

I'm returning to NC for a couple weeks to visit folks, and be with my girlfriend Lacey on her birthday. This evening I drove down to Denver with my RV to leave it at my aunt and uncle's house while I'm gone. That was quite the ordeal - we misjudged…

Day 111: Exploring Colorado

The start of today's journey takes me to the Swetsville Zoo, a cool junk art exhibit I used to visit on school trips. Go, rocket turtle, go! Colorado has these things I call "cotton trees". They grow what look like cotton balls, and here you can see the…

Day 110: See ALL THE Wyomings!

So it turns out that the last time I headed up to Wyoming, I totally missed just about everything there is to do in Wyoming, for which my mother chastised me upon my return. Today I rectified this grievous error by returning to Wyoming to do a proper job of…

Day 106: Scooting through the park

Ft. Collins ranks pretty highly nationally for its footpaths and pedestrian/cyclist-friendliness. This evening I took advantage of that by scooting through a park and along the Poudre River for a couple miles. It was very scenic, and a nice ride. This fat groundhog let me get right up to…
