Take It Easy

After fourteen hours on the road, I have pulled into the friendly mountain town of Monticello, Utah. I’ve got that semi-numb driving-all-day buzz in my body, but I do love the road. I had good conversations on the phone with some of my friends as I drove, and of course I called Abby about half a dozen times, and of course we already miss each other.

I am hoping to hike this week, but tomorrow, anyway, has a somewhat foreboding forecast, particularly the 50-mph wind gusts.

“Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy…”
-The Eagles

    Wow, 14 hours. I haven’t driven 14 hours since… well, it’s been a long time. Lately, about six hours is my limit…
