On the Road Again

Dear Reader (Including all of the citizens of the World who should take equal pride in Neil Armstrong's accomplishments. Thank you, Belize!),

I'm writing this from the passenger seat of a Winnebago heading East out of Burns, Ore. — which was named after the Scottish poet, Robert Burns, not the chinless wonder from M*A*S*H. Which reminds me, why didn't the "H" in M*A*S*H get an asterisk? That always bothered me.

Burns looks like it's seen better days, but it still appears much nicer than the neighboring "city," Hines, Ore., at least from what we could tell (Burns's taxidermist shops seem much more professional and less like the guy inside would be perfectly happy to stuff and mount a pseudo-intellectual demi-Jewish pundit from the Upper West Side). We stopped in Burns for the coffee, as one does, and to switch drivers. I got us from Bend to Burns and the Fair Jessica will take us into Boise. We didn't plan on only stopping in places that begin with B, but that's just one of the great things about the road: the serendipity of it all.
