By Foot and By Thumb: Day 11

October 30, 2017

I opened my eyes with the morning sun. I tossed and turned a bit. I sat up. We were close.


“Utah, life elevated.”

I was ecstatic. I was so close to home!

Joe and Mary were incredibly kind. They invited me to stay the night in their home in Salt Lake City. I gratefully accepted.

Their house was full of humans and fish and love. I was made to feel at home. They told me that I was welcome to stay for a few days. The following week Joe’s brother, who was also a truck-driver, would be heading towards Sacramento and would be happy to take me along.  I was very appreciative of the offer, but it felt so arranged. I also wanted to keep moving.

We all ate dinner together. After dinner Mary and I watched a movie. I fell asleep on the couch.
