“Travels with Bogart”

July 31st, 2011

7-31-11Since trading the comforts of home for the comforts of traveling the United States in an 84 sq ft bus with Bogart, my Boston terrier, copious amounts of people have asked me if I have ever read “Travels With Charley” by John Steinbeck. I can finally say to those people, I am finally on top of it, literally. Seriously, with a reminder like the one in today’s photo, something is telling me to read this classic sooner than later.
With weather not fit for man nor beast, I ventured out in the 100 degree heat in downtown Kansas City, Missouri for a mid-day bicycle ride. I headed straight for the Power & Light district in the center of downtown and to “scope out” the most beneficial place to park for the next couple of days. Most people weren’t thinking like me. The streets in Kansas City were mostly empty, as the air conditioning and comforts of home proved too appealing to most.
