It is 4:30 in the AM and I am sitting in a hotel room in Moab, Utah… Right now I would like to be getting some sleep but apparently the people in room 316 decided have an orgy or do something with sheep.
The drive through Northern Arizona was interesting, you went from desert to pine trees as far as the eye could see back to desert. I saw the greatest rainbow of my life as I went through the desert, then got destroyed by the biggest rain storm since Evan Almighty (I didn’t see that steaming pile of shit either, I just wanted to reference it). The route I took 89-160-191, basically led me through no man’s land, well I shouldn’t say that, there were plenty of potential polygamist compounds.

By going through the desert with hardly any other people on the road, I could go pretty much as fast as I wanted, which I enjoyed until I learned about open range cattle. On 191 there is a ton of open range cattle, going over a hill at 95 mph and seeing a huge ass cow in front of you really teaches you to slow down a little. I almost blasted one cow and for the next ten minutes all I could think about was how that would have been a shitty way to die. Crashing into a cow, then having them crap on me as they die and I slow fade away in the twisted steel and potential hamburger with the smell of manure lingering…

Before I stopped to get a place to sleep last night I thought about trying to find an out of the way town and hoping that it would be controlled by one crime boss like the movie Run. I could run afoul of said crime boss and end up racing and fighting my way out of the town while single handily taking down the syndicate, the idea seemed to be a winner to me. However, I was wearing flip flops and knew they weren’t the correct shoes to either race in or fight in. Once again functional fashion and lack of sensible shoes ruin my ability to fight organized crime.
Well the sex parade has stopped, I am going to see if I can sleep for the next two hours.
