Breakfast at a cafe outside, Wakefield, Michigan. I’m going to put a lot of road behind me in the next few days. Got to be careful, a lot of deer around here. I saw a young buck on the side of the road and I don’t know who was more scared him or me. Women admire my quest. Freedom calls a lot of them. A woman I talked to at The Straits told me about her dream of escaping from her family for just a little while and going on a biking trip alone.
