Ah, Sweet Home Alabama - our journey into the deep South. As we crossed the state border from Georgia it seemed as though time had stood still about 60 years ago and not in a good way. There are an interesting number of trailers and run-down houses dotted around with some hungry-looking horses hanging about but no real towns. We were beginning to be glad that we were only staying for 2 nights...... Our hotel was nice enough though and had a fridge (to keep the necessary alcohol) and a shower with a massaging head which is nice after lots of hours on the Greyhound bus. We ventured into Montgomery town to check out the sights - the bible that is our Lonely Planet guide had said you could do it all in an afternoon and ... read more

Había conducido más de ocho horas pero aún así me costó dormir. Rápidamente descubrí cómo correr las cortinas de la habitación para impedir que entrara luz alguna y he podido dormir sin sobresaltos hasta pasadas las diez cuando la encargada de la limpieza ha empezado a aporrear la puerta de mi habitación para avisarme de que era la hora. He llamado a recepción y me han confirmado que la salida se podía hacer hasta las once, por lo que he salido y he tratado de calmar a la mujer, quien ya me quería echar. A punto he estado de quedarme unas horas más durmiendo pero estoy de gira y no se vale parar a la primera de cambio. He cogido mis trastos y he vuelto a la carretera. Por el camino he decidido seguir hacia el ... read more

Although the title says "DC", I have to admit that I was mostly in Arlington, VA and Silver Springs, MD...not DC at all. I guess, though that it is not so important where I was exactly, but with whom I spent my time. Sidenote: The great thing about Austin, TX (where I live), is that people are from all over. The worst thing about Austin, TX is that because people are from all over, they're less likely to stay for the long run. It's a great place to go to school, start a career, maybe stay for a few years after graduation. But for those non-teacher, non-social workers, and non-"I can work anywhere" type folks, Austin is usually just a small stepping stone to their real lives. Case in point, Wendy and Dana. I met ... read more

Brian and I experienced our first instance of car troubles on the drive from Atlanta to Memphis. It happened in the middle-of-nowhere Alabama. Brian and I were just driving along when all of a sudden we heard a loud gug-gug-gug come from our car, accompanied by the sight of our tire tread flying off behind us in the rearview mirror! Needless to say, we pulled over to check out the damage. Apparently, when you’ve been driving for a long time on a hot road, the rubber on your tire tread can literally melt off leaving you with a bum tire…and did I mention we were in the middle of NOWHERE?!?! So we examined the tire for a few minutes and decided we’d try to drive on it for a little while instead of attempting to ... read more

Lazy day. Just laid up around the house visiting and playing with our grandson. Did a little shopping for town cloths for the graduation. Thought showing up in hiking boots, shorts and our one hiking shirt might be a bit tacky. My pants are four inches smaller in the waist than the last pair I bought before starting the hike. Still have not stepped on a scale, but this is a great indicator of the weight I have lost. My shirts have also dropped from XL to L. CC also bought smaller clothes than what she had before the hike. Patrick, Deborah Mooney aka OD & CC All Who Wander Are Not Lost ... read more
