August 7th Day 686: today was a better day. Still killing time have one more night here. Made a fire had some hot food and a brew. Got some disc golf on and saw considerable improvement in my form with a slight score improvement. 😎
August 6th – DAY 685: Just killing time, I can’t afford to keep driving so I’m parked in a small Kentucky town for a few days. It hit me today that no one has checked in on me since June 22nd. Not a single family member …?… really? It is amazing how alone I am. I’m not depressed but this tine alone is an eye opener to a great many things.
I got a round of Disco Golf in to distract myself. Just played 18 but was only after par 3 even if the hoke was listed as a 4. Got five 3par and 1 birdie. Just played to have some fun not lose any more damn disc.
August 5th – DAY 684: Real Happenings: (bear with me this took a bit of work to condense down.) it’s still a bit long.
When traveling I assign a day for a “normal” meal stop. This time it puts me around the Tennesse/Kentucky border. In a town that if you want to find it you have to zoom in more than once on gps just for the name to pull up.
Today was a breakfeast stop and as I walked into this little breakfeast/lunch restaurant an older couple well into the upper years was also coming in. As always I hold the door for them to go first, they both thanked me.

The man looks back as I follow them in and remove my hat. (This is important) Something I do but have not thought about it in a long time until today.
I looked to his hat that he had also removed that was sitting next to mine, it simply said veteran. Full but condensed story click here.
