“I know you wanna tell me goodbye…
I know you really wanna be your own squirrel…”
-Oregon to Me
So the Strep stopped me in my tracks but I’m getting close to feeling well enough to ride the ride. I have agreed to at the very least stay for Boy’s Night (Burrito and Croquet Edition) Thursday night, and why the hell wouldn’t I??
My hosts have been taking great care of me, and just being here in the Emerald State has been great for the mind. Something about being in a place that affords you a Mountain View most anywhere you might be, from the hospital to the grocery store to just walking through any neighborhood. It’s a beautiful place, but every time I look into those hills they are calling to me, and hopefully not in a mutated hill family waiting to eat me kind of way.
That’s my update for today. I suspect that a load out post will happen tomorrow as today is “tear it apart and repack it” day for the ole Vaya.
Even the view from the VA is fantastic
