Video and photos with captions of first few day’s highlights – and lowlights.
Only pair of cargo pants I own. I sewed up the hole, but these pants are not made for long distance walking. They are cotton, which is horrible for what I’m doing. But, I can’t afford proper pants, so I walk with what I have.
Some geese and their care taker on my way back from Aurora Bridge
Random mirror I saw along the road somewhere.
I slept beside a highway and draw bridge in S. Seattle my first night out of the city.
The view of the bridge from my tent.
My neighbor while sleeping near the bridge.
After climbing a big hill, this was my view. It hurt to get up there with the cart, but the awe of the mountains forced me to take a short break.
Too much weight on the cart. Things have to go. I happened upon a Goodwill and donated my $200+ Bose speakers I use for my plays about activism. I’ll just have to find a better way to get sound into the shows, probably just run it through the crappy projector speaker I have.
Mt. Rainier – truly magnificent. Well worth the trek.
With my feet throbbing it’s hard to truly appreciate the wonder out here. But then I think of all the queer kids who have to leave such places in this beautiful country because they don’t feel safe. No one should EVER have to leave this! Full Equality NOW!!!!!!
