On the road
After about four days of traveling, I am finally getting around to writing here. Too much running around. Too many unpleasant and time-consuming tasks.
Assessing the state of my poor automobile, which has rested in a garage for the better part of a year in a couple of garages.
Reviving the dead battery. Trying to change the flat tire.
Determining that the frame is too rusted to support the car's weight on a jack.
Shopping for a new car.
None of this is fun - nor even that interesting for me. But - I decided to start making the most of the trip - chronicling it as best I can. I'll start posting some some of the photos from the last few days - perhaps interesting for people who have never traveled this stretch. I'll also include some other snippets of creative info that I come across from time to time.
