I'm saying goodby to the Mississippi River tomorrow. I was at its south end in March, now I'll be leaving its northern beginnings. What a river! Up here, with all the dams and stuff, it's more lake than river. Down at the end it raced past.
Also tomorrow I'll begin the prairie run. I've got several bottles of Five Hour Energy. Anyway, I've done it before so it won't be new boredom. A friend's wife considered it great fun as a passenger. Rolling hills she said. I suspect she slept through much of it but didn't notice.
Going west makes it easier. The Canadian Rockies are worth it!
Old enough to know better; Young enough to do it anyway!
