Today, most of the day will be spent road-tripping up to the rural interior of Maine, specifically the Kennebec river uplands. It is a trip of about nine hours, much of it on tiny rural roads through small towns and a couple of 'blinking traffic signal' communities.
I just finished work at midnight, and am driving straight up, so I will beat the bulk of the holiday weekend traffic, with my post sunup driving being on those lonely rural byways. There are benefits to being nocturnal, and driving with scant accompaniment is one of them. Since this is a muggy August overnight, my hands may very well be wet on the wheel.
I will have a couple of pre-written posts popping up in the next couple of days. Ciao, amici!
