Faith under Construction
I forgot to mention my last post….on our way out of DC – Steph texted both our cells…

“On the road again. just cant wait 2 get on the road again. c’g things i nevr c again and i Cant wait 2 get on the road again.”

That melted our hearts…

Then I texted back:

“It’s been a long road – getting from there 2 here – Blah blah blah – ’cause I got faith of the heart – nothing can bend or break me…”

And then I texted back from Mark’s phone…

“I got faith to believe – I can do anything…’cause I got faith of the heart. cue guitar riff and spaceships”

She answered back with : “Sniff. ENGAGE”

We left behind our Trek buddy in DC – but we’re still together in spirit. Sigh.

Last Monday, she said she sat down to watch an episode of Enterprise on UPN….only a few more left. It was pre-empted by a National’s game. Damn.

That didn’t work out because we ran in to some heavy rain on day 1. The rain was so bad – we could barely see out our windows and the road in front of us.

We stopped in Cumberland, Maryland – for lunch. The town’s inside the Appalachian Mountains…somewhere.

Here’s a new blog about about my road trips..

Last month – I pointed my tiny little black Corolla towards Cali….headed home. I finished up my Master’s program in DC and I was ready for a break.

My honey piled up the car with all our crap and planned on hitting the I-70 for our road trip.

Rain slowed us down, at the beginning of the trip. We had to play catch-up by day 4.

More pix will be uploaded…soon
