observations (after 2 days)

Man cannot live by Clif bars alone.

Touring in autumn is difficult to pack for. You have to pack clothes for warm and cool weather. If you want some clean duds to change into at the end of the day, you end up carrying a lot of clothes.

I am carrying too much stuff. I will have to reevaluate what is essential and ship the nonessential back home. I will also need to carry a smaller stockpile of food. There will be food to purchase along the way.

For me, thus far, touring alone is not as much fun as touring with a partner.

AT&T provides way better coverage along the trail than Sprint.

I haven’t had the urge to listen to much music so far. Just a couple of Johnny Cash albums this morning. If you know me, you know this is a little out of character.

Signing out, safe and sound, from St. Louis,

    This is a first for me (responding to a blog). I am very glad you are blogging so I can keep better contact with you. I have sent your tent and you should receive it Tuesday. I have a number so you can track it if you would like. Things will get better as you head out of St. Louis! I love you!

    I forgot to tell you that Posdnus and Micah are working on a relationship today. Posdnus definitely wants to play but Micah is still not sure!

    Well, out of character maybe, but in my experience few things lift a heavy heart like the Man in Black.
