Tomorrow's plan looks something like this, a 1500 calorie day, 40 miles equivalent, and the plan today is to stay by a beautiful Riverside and let the body recover from the first 3 days of serious use. The last little bit of the plan for tomorrow might not be possible, a dirt road and probably a seven or eight percent grade. If that proves and possible then there is a state park by the lake just north of Bridgeport that would probably be where we would stay for the night.







Deeply depressed today. Not quite sure why. Not sure why I am not deeply depressed every breath except I seem to be saved from that by the impossible task of trying to focus on breathing life into the occasional soul.

Likely to be offline until tomorrow sometime. Likely to remain in this area of Walker tomorrow to do some vehicle work and to finalize some reading and work on the website, and then to resume the journey South. Quite remarkably the body has returned to being quite powerful was strong endurance already. Much was indeed learned about how to move this thing with this tired old body. Keeping front-and-center that 100% of the available power is from the thighs through the knees. Everything else is distraction and wasted energy and frustration. The notion of smoothly pumping energy out of the ground every inch, and periodically tremendously easing off to find where the comfortable range of travel is, and going for appropriate full extension. Even after a month distance from this solar vehicle average output today is 138 watts per hour. Remarkable.

Sheriff stop. Small-minded Town America. United States afraid. Detail

Quite an upscale new development town on the nevada-california border. I stopped by a young Sheriff's Department individual. Fairly uncomfortable he was at the beginning. They have almost no shoulder on a fairly high traffic four-lane Road. 395. About six times during the 10-minute interchange he said that it is a small town. Several people he said called in the vehicle, I suspect that is correct. America is embracing hatred. Hatred legitimizes selfishness, sanctify his selfishness. All of this in the name of Jesus and the Christian God.

Humankind is my business. The poorest among them my business. Serving them I can joyfully live or die.

Do you go around feeding people she asked? Yes, I thought to myself. She said, I ain't never seen nothing like that. I tried to feed Souls. Indeed.... that's what I'm called to do. That is where the hope is, the only place. Glimpsing for the first time I am that that is why I'm here. Can I do it? Can I do it well? Will I be able to help anyone? Time will tell.

The human species is profoundly, essentially, immoral, destructive, self-destructive except in the most primitive hunter gatherer situations for.... which we evolved. No more moral has become the human species in the 7000 years that we have existed in an environment we were not designed for, agricultural, Industrial, population dense. If I try and live with that perspective the world makes much more sense to me than the illusion I was brought up with that we have become more moral. The Dark Ages followed a substantial Enlightenment, as I understand it. Esoterically, maybe there are slight improvements every Thousand Years. But what does not change is the human propensity among large groups of the population for Extraordinary tribal evil, and for the the silent majority to go along. As then there continue to be extremely moral, profoundly Morrill, outliers, Outsiders. They are my tribe. They are my prospective clients.

I would die rather than accept a middle or upper economic class lifestyle were it offered to me. I'm sure of it. That would be to leave my family, the neediest in creation, the masses of creation. Who would leave their family? Here in DC it is impossible not to see the Masters of the Universe, those empty Souls, poor souls, they have done just that. Walking Dead people. Thinking the opposite. Madness.

Some days feel like little more than just waiting to die. So hard to find meaning on this overwhelmingly evil planet.
