The woods were lovely, dark, and deep

I undertook a 2,850 mile road trip that took almost two weeks to complete. It would have been much shorter had it not been for a long detour I had to take due to weather-related events.

Being in the car, on the road, watching the miles drift away is as close as I get to feeling totally free and relaxed. For most people, driving is a necessary evil. For me it is a release. Especially long drives on the Interstate. I have to take another fairly long drive again in a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to it...

Hopefully, by that time the Mississippi will have receeded a bit.
