I love so many parts of Wyoming. Wyoming and Montana, some of the richest unblemished country I've ever seen. I was so caught up on my second time through the Martian audiobook, that I over shot my turn by an hour, placing me deep in the center of Wyoming. The slow crawl out of the mistake led me through a forest no one told me about, Bighorn National Forest, which is on par with any great national park anywhere in the US. Sometimes mistakes recover in the most splendid fashion.
I'm still trying to write up my south Chicago experience, I've rewritten it three times and it still feels clunky. I'm looking to book a few lakeside airbnb's in Vermont and really rest up. The road at this point is about the marathon.
I absolutely adore Columbus, Ohio. This town is extraordinarily kind, clean and filled with good food and coffee. I debated heavily this morning staying another day on account of rain, but I really need to push on North. Gonna head to Rochester New York today. Two more road days and I'll be able to say I made it.
Song of the Day: Debussy - "Clair De Lune".
No light without darkness. From being a reasonably happy business writer and motor racing journalist going from strength to strength since my decision to continue as a self-employed man, I suddenly had life throw a couple of curve balls at me. I think I mostly coped admirably but at times it was really tough. Now, having passed that milestone Big Five-O, I’ve come to realise that you sometimes need darkness to fully appreciate the light. Today, I’m burning a candle for the people I lost while shining a light on those that have continued to make me feel happy and have supported me in my struggle to stay strong. I’m aware that at the same time I have been forced to shut some people out in order to just survive but having been promised birthday gifts by my friends in the shape of wonderful experiences that will liven up my 51st year of existence I am ready to roll up the blinds and let the sun back into my heart. The shiny and reflecting scene in the picture was captured at Scotney Castle sometime in early August. #scotneycastle#kent#nationaltrust#england#britain#photosofbritain#homedecoration#home_design#dutch_connextion#super_holland#westcoastgrammers#olympus#em1markii#ig_mirrorless#mdiepraam_countryside
