American Transience
The Lord knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the Lord,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke, they shall vanish away.

Psalm 37:18-20

Popcorn popped. Can't wait to read the adventures that are about to be shared!

I was literally just wishing yesterday that you would post another spectacular adventure on here!

Oh great and I thought I was going to achieve something at work this week. Now I'm checking VansAirforce every 10 min.

Sounds like a wonderful trip Scott. Thank you for sharing with us.

Thanks again for your help in Merced.

Can't wait!!
Hi Scott,

I was telling my girlfriend about your amazing adventure last year. She is going to read it this weekend. I was mentioning that I doubt you would be doing another long adventure for a while.

I log on and here's another incredible adventure. Absolutely can't wait.

I'm going to have to bug out on this thread. too much foreshadowing of gloom and despair to come. I feel like I'm back in Church.

Wow... powerful as always. What's sticking with me right now is the photos of the hotel. I once co-wrote a song called "Outlook In"... a wistful acoustic ballad. I think my lyrics might fit somehow with your transient tale:

Doesn’t always go the way you want it to
You don’t always get to do what you want to do
There are times it seems you’re chasing all of your dreams
And they’re getting away

It can’t always go your way
It won’t always be your day
But you wait it out, and the good times
They may return

Oh well, oh well
Oh well, oh well

I'll follow along for most of the story and the cool pics, but, since I don't do religion or church, the god-stuff narrative is lost on me...

But, I dig these trip reports; makes me wish I had the time to do a long haul trip around the country like this. 08-15-2017 09:17 AM

Let's let Scott reflect in his logbook. I will be still,,,,and listen.
