Desert Dispatch

As I find myself in the middle of the desert without water or electricity, much less wifi, for miles, I'm phoning this dispatch in from the road, much like the reporters of yore. Special thanks to Ma for acting as stenographer. O, and once I find some wifi again I'll get up some new pics.

Here are a few highlights from week 4 on the road: meeting and hiking for a few miles with some through hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail; Pines to Palms Highway through San Bernadino National Forest; beating the heat with a midday movie in Palm Desert, CA (10 Oscar Nominated Shorts); free promotional Hagan Daaz ice cream cone; another spectacular campsite at Joshua Tree National Park; revisiting recycle man in Indio, CA who is completely boggled by my little adventure.

Traveling is fun.

Most everyone I've mentioned your adventure to responds with, "......a scooter?!" I'd love to know more about the Pines to Palms Hwy.

Hmmmm...stop So you're in the scorching desert.stop You're exposed to the elements on the back of a scooter.stop Yet, ice cream doesn't appear to be playing such a pivotal role in your travels as it did in Asia.stop Or maybe you're just not telling the internet about it...stop

Did you get all that, Margaret?

I usually don't have to explain the whole scooter thing to people down in Texas, they already think everyone in Washington is a dirty hippie and capable of anything. I've tried to reassure them that some of us do shower from time to time and that I even use non-hemp scented soap.
