Ruthie On The Road, Update cont'd.

I started walking along the shoulder of I-86 West and amazingly enough, was picked up by two different drivers.

But after the last lady dropped me off, I was out in the high-desert country, in the dark and definitely on my own.

I walked for a long time. Finally I reached the Massacre Rocks rest area and sat down on a stone bench outside the building.

I stayed there, throwing pieces of chocolate doughnut to the local field mice, for the next five hours.

Finally, at 5 am, I grabbed my pack and started walking down the shoulder of the interstate...Again.

I tried and tried and tried to get a ride. Nobody would stop.

Finally, after almost an hour, somebody did.

And the man brought me into a small town called Burley, Idaho. This is where I am now.

I met a man who made sure that I got a motel for the night and who is now working on getting me a bus ticket out of here.

He called the State of Idaho yesterday and asked them about hitchhiking. He was told that I can walk, like I was doing, but I cannot hitchhike or fly a sign.

Go figure.

Meanwhile, President "Maggot-In-Man-Form" Bush talked to troop families in Boise yesterday.

He made sure that he was far away from Texas when he did.

Do you have any idea why, Campers?


PRIVATE MESSAGE: I know what you did and why you did it. Be Warned. I am now your enemy.
