Ruthie On The Road, Update

There, outside the community where Dru Sjodin was kidnapped and murdered two years ago, I stood with my thumb out.

People drove by me and yelled obscenities. People flipped me off. People drove by and just glared.

And nobody picked me up. For several hours. Nothing.

I started walking and was finally picked up by a guy from California.

He dropped me off at a gas station on the edge of Crookston, Minnesota. I will stay here in Crookston over the weekend.

I used the rest room, grabbed a drink and headed out of the gas station toward town.

And that is when I realized that I had left my Walkman behind.

When I returned to the gas station nobody knew what I was talking about.

I was both heartbroken and really mad.
