The Drive Home – Big and Beardy
Day 29 –
Wednesday morning we got up and picked up Mike’s Jeep from the auto shop, after we got back to his place I packed my things, hugged it out, and said goodbye. It was a lot of fun seeing my buddy, but I was ready to get home. It was Wednesday and on Monday I was going to start my new job with WDM Architects. My beard, which I had been growing for longer than the 3 and a half weeks on the road, was big and bushy; and I was going to let it grow a few days more before shaving it for my first day of work. The drive back was plain and flat, but the sky was blue, the clouds were white, and I saw the occasional antelope running in the far distance. I arrived back in Wichita late that evening, tired, broke, and happy to be home.
