Rest stops


It’s really rather nice to have that point in any trip where you can stop and just unwind a bit. I usually find that I’ve been tensing up and a lot more uncomfortable than I’ve thought when I finally get that chance to move around and stretch my legs.

The past 5 1/2 hours of driving have gone by pretty quickly for me really. Listening to The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho as narrated by Jeremy Irons has definitely helped. It’s honestly the first audio book I’ve ever tried out. As far as a distraction from driving, it really works.

Anyway, I’m getting back to my break. Continue having a great Thursday,

Hey everyone,

There is something so invigorating about starting a long trip. Anyway, I wanted to put something up briefly before I started this 7 1/2 hour drive. I may update/add to this post later, but I hope you all are doing well.

Stephen R.
