I am sitting in the campground laundry mat – not doing laundry, that would be silly, but relaxing in an easychair, plugged into the wall, using the wifi and eating watermelon from a bag. Its really quite lovely.
Today was my first 100+ day and I am feeling it. I am exhausted, pooped, knackered, weary, just plain old tired. It didn’t probably help that I was up late (for me – 11pm!!!) last night hanging out with my neighbour in the RV park in Kamloops. We started chatting about his son and somehow got on to country music, and ended up spending the rest of the night listening to Marty Haggard do a tribute to his father – Merle Haggard. Jim (that was my neighbour) says Merle is the best country singer around – sure?
The first half of the ride today seemed to be all downhill to Chase – about halfway – and a good spot to stop for lunch. The second half became a bit tedious – it was hot and the traffic continued to be heavy. I don’t know how I am going to cope when I get to Ontario or somewhere and the heat gets worse… oh well, will just figure it out. I used my little portable speaker today to blast music over the steady hum drum of trucks going by – I am starting to realize I am going to run out of my music quickly… so I am going to ask a favour to help beef up my library:
Could you all please post, email, Facebook, or text me your favorite songs? Perhaps ones that motivate you, or just make you happy? Thanks! :)
Camping just outside of Salmon Arm tonight – rather regretting my choice as it seems like the neighbouring house has two teenage girls who have just been given a karaoke set – my dinner had “musical” accompaniment! Hopefully they quiet down in time for my early, very, very early bed time… I am thinking right about now actually :)
Good night my friends!
