Day One • Short, But Fun

First day of the Rolling Sabbatical.  Was unable to start until mid-afternoon after returning home from Boston and the wedding of my old friend Dave and the lovely Lisa.  Dave, being the nautical type and former submarine Captain, arranged for the wedding to be at sea, well, in Boston harbor on a pretty big and lux excursion boat. Very nice and a good time was had by all.

The trip so far has been great with the car running perfectly and the drive great fun with only a bit of rain.  The picture is as the sun was about to set on South GA.  I've made it to Atlanta, which is not bad given the 3:30 start.

I did find the fellow in the fast food line packing a pistol on his hip and arguing with the young lady behind the counter about the speed with which he was receiving his spicy chicken nuggets a bit disconcerting.  Judging from his vocabulary and grammar, I would question whether or not he should be packin'. But packin' he was.

Early start to reach Illinois tomorrow.  More later.

  1. I'm sure you'll have more than a couple of good fast food line stories. Try not to complicate matters and piss off the packin' locals by ordering something crazy like...what was it? a cheeseburger with no cheese? :)
