Road trip update #1
Left Boston loaded with sandwiches and fruit and veggies from the love of my Aunt and Uncle. Drove until Syracuse, where I stayed with a good friend. Next day, the car battery drained and I stood beside my car with a sign that read, "JUMP MY CAR PLEASE." A man across the street at the steelworkers place helped me out. He said he was happy to get out of work - his shift started at 3 AM. I thanked him and drove away - without my bag of car supplies I had placed next to the car. I only have the jumper cables, which is the most important piece of gear, so I don't mind much.
I found a cool waterfall along the way.
Chicago bound today! I am grateful for the love of friends and family.
