Just got in to my brother's place, amd after an ice cold shower, I almost feel human! 400 miles across PA, Ohio, Michigan in 90 degree sun.
After realizing I forgot to put in my earplugs post-pitstop, I pulled over to the side of the road. I looked out, and saw, directly next to speeding 18 wheel trucks and swerving SUVs packed with kids and crap, was a picturesque farm, complete with a red barn. The crickets in the ditch were loud enough to hear over the traffic and when there was a lull, it was downright peaceful.
