Day 1

Hopped a ride with Louie to Dekalb where he's filming and grabbed some ham n eggs. Marched out of town into the corn where i began to realize what an enemy this 60lb pack was gonna become. Did about 5 miles sober with no music and decided to set for a bit. Puff puff and ipod in the on position put me in the ring like a fresh wrestler. Punk rock sing alongs sang like never before and deep cuts that cut deeper than ever.




Finally came on an orchard and cider mill where my lunch was given to me free of charge and was insisted into seconds of dutch apple pie and ice cream. The sweet woman asked where i was sleeping, to which i replied "i dunno" followed by her "well aint ya worried them coyot's is gonna get ya" and i said "i wasnt until you just said that". Then she gave me a half dozen fresh donuts for the road.








I just called him Bud, we were soaked together




First watering hole, told myself i wouldn't pass one. Rolled dice for shots and talked about how beans were a wiser crop this year.








First sunset with my donuts
