I am subject to regular irregularities- I can generally expect to find myself on an adventure every eight to eighteen months- someone will need their
car stolen back from a dope fiend, or be.stranded broke and barefoot in Bullhead, or the hiding in the desert with abusive cops looking for them for
no good reason, and also I will go across the southern california freeways without much money or chance of success, until some how things work out.
I've come to enjoy and take pride in these ventures and if I can ever get some piece of writing done about them they may actually pay off.
it's been a while since the last 1 though. it seems the problems of this new decade are not solluble by mere presence and force of will. The problems
of the last 18 months have come to me and did not give up when I came after them. But they are slowly working out. I have a humble paycheck which I
stretch better than most and can loan the occasional 20 bucks from, and a few others in my clan have done as well- its an odd kind of stability for a
group of people who rode a vrry unstable prosperity for a very long time and then did quite a bit of laughing on the way down. Its been driving me
sane and quieting my mind, killing my writing and making me doubt much.
but the 18 month mark Has come and the pattern continues in a way that may have something to do with this new decade and its idiosyncrasies. normal
object of my rescue missions who perhaps should remain nameless for change, has actually become the bastion of stability for moment and perhaps or
brightest bit of hope- but as usual she is over the horizon- some 700 miles this time- and she has gas money. so i'm getting back on the road, as a
sort of karmic payment for dollars, miles, hours, grit and sheer scumbag audacity. I will have four days off, a fully insured rental car, gasmoney,
and evensome entertainment budget. The objective is entirely up
to me and does not have to be accomplished, so if things get heavy I will probably just walk away and have a beer and come back when the problemis
gone... Actuallt that doesnt sound like me but I have that option.
At the end of the day its just a joy ride from the mojave through the bay area and on to the oregon border then back, with a brief crash in on someone
who in 2008, I figuredwould be a jane doe by now- but its what I do and im doing it a new way, may 19-22, and I am thrilled with the possibilities.
I plan to spend a few hours digging frisco and berkley on the 19 on the way up,and I might be around Humbolt State friday, so if any atsers know what
is not to be missed up yhere, let me know.
Sorry for typos. Mobile
