"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Taking a Turn at the Wheel

The project:
Taking a turn at the wheel as a night road trip.

200 miles, about 3.5 hours

Why bother?
Having two licensed drivers in the truck is awfully nice when you get a late start. Our options: leave Friday morning and drive, essentially, all day or get some miles on Thursday night for a short finish Friday. We opted for the Thursday night approach, which meant it would be AWFULLY tough for either of us to stay awake long enough to make it safely to camp.

Worth it?
Yes. It was good to get rolling; and helping my dad with the driving is the LEAST I can do for all the time and effort he's put into making this trip (and so many others) possible.
