  1. You bought a new outfit! Friend I was wondering when you were retiring the earth-tone tanktop. Glad to hear you’re on the road again. Embrace the burn buddy!

    • ‘Retired’ is a strong word. The ratty tanktop is still with me, as much a part of this trip as Bob & Surly, only its burden has been lightened by this new, blue, quicker-drying muscle top. You can look forward to seeing my buldging biceps in both high- and low-tech outfits.
