So I've been slowley making my way westward thru texas. And I've never been a fan of this state, but I gotta admit it's not so bad one you get away from the city area..

Any way yesterday I left Huntsville walking the 45 towards the next lil town, madisonville hoping to get a ride but wound up walking the whole 25+ miles. I was warned it would be a tough hitch cuz of the prison in the area.

Sore and tired I immediately bedded down outside an abandoned pizza hut woke up at 6 and had an awsome breakfast in the days in continental.

Full and still tired and feeling shakey from lack of the devils juice i crashed back out and was woken up shortly thereafter by the local fuzz.

They asked me if I had any money, i didnt, offered to buy me food, I declined still full from breakfast. Accepted the water tho.

Really needing a beer I went to the truck stop to hopefully make some.money, no luck yet but got some travel food from a friendly motorist.

Walked around a bit and got a couple $1 and $5 kicks which bought a couple beers then decided to try my luck hitching to dallas.[nearest train yard]

A homebum comes and stands across the street, from the looks trying to hustle meth money so I move further down, as I'm walking i see an old dusty mildewed beat up wallet.

Of course i pick it up and check it. Full of old wet business cards and a busted up debit card, I almost throw it back down notice it has a bottle opener on it which I thought was cool. And for some reason made me check the wallet again

$100.00 bill tucked in that mofo!!

Walking to the store to get beer, another 1.00 bill.

Yeahhhh

Just reminded me of my most recent cash find. Mine was not as noble but still good. I am working doing deliveries, and i was pulled over between deliveries when i saw these two thuggy douche looking dudes walking down the street. One of them pulls a hand out of his pocket and three 20$ bills fall out. I contemplated telling them when i saw he didnt notice but he looked like an asshole so i just let them walk on. Got out of my truck chased them flying in the wind, got back in and drove away. Bought a half G of blow. Haha

Back in minneapolis for a minute, possibly going to nationals? regardless hmu if you're around
Happy (very) belated Father's day to our Oogle Daddy @Matt Derrick !
Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
