It was Shabbat today, so an appropriate day to rest and recover from the stress of the last few days, weeks, and months.
Last night I took us out to Brown Dog Cafe for dinner. Kelly and I split a nice veggie pizza and a tasty veggie burger, with a side of vegetables. Afterwards, Adam treated us to frozen yogurt with add-your-own-toppings at Rhino’s, a yogurt joint in a gas station—always a good opportunity to eat candy and other stuff.
This morning I packed my backpack. Then Adam and I brought both the 27-gallon container (which I’d separated from the kart), and the kart itself to the UPS store. Once again I felt ripped off by the high fees to ship such things. (Swallow hard; hand over your credit card.)
Then we had to drive back to Dick’s Sporting Goods—they’d neglected to remove the security device from my shoes.
Later in the afternoon, we all went to see “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” It was entertaining, with plenty of chase scenes. I did hear some terrific musical moments. John Powell is the composer, incorporating songs and themes by John Williams. (Disclosure: I am easily entertained.)
Tomorrow I begin the next phase of my journey, carrying instead of pushing. I hope my decision to do this works out well. No turning back at this point. Wish me luck!
