  1. curious as to if you have someone going with you? do you have anything being transported for you? are you carrying a backpack? very interesting and I’d like to follow your progress. We may know a few people you can stay with as well.


    • Great! I’d be most grateful for any hooks-up with which you can provide me, if you think they’d be ok with a visitor! Had initially planned to have a friend with me (driving his car) for the most desolate portions of the trip, but it fell through – see my most recent post for some info on that, and a bit on the backpack/jogging stroller thing.

  2. Have you tried
