Day 136: Crossin' the border. No, the other border.

Rochester is so tiny, the best place to find fast food is the food court at the local mall. Sad. At least A&W's new chicken strips are _really _good... So today, being Independence Day, is a day for fireworks. Kevin's friends and I, having a large field way…

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 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…
