i woke up in the guest room at my friend's home in houston.  it was nice to have more space than the camper and to have a real shower in the morning.  and it was good to see them as i hadn't seen them much after they had moved to houston.  i headed east to continue on the drive to florida.  i drove most of the day and stopped to meet a friend for dinner who was living in lousiana.  we ate at a local place in her town.. it had a nice feel to it and we chatted for a couple hours.  it was good to see her and catch up.  afterwards, i got on the road and continued east to mississippi, where i spent the night at a rest area.

on this day, i had driven to and through all of the contiguous states in the country that were west of the mississippi river.  it had been a ten week long journey by myself, and it was really great to get to see a number of familiar faces on the way home from the west coast.  i was almost back to florida and was looking forward to taking a break from driving so much.

having spent the night in a suburban area, i woke up before the sun rose and quietly left.  to stay more discreet, i hadn't popped up the top of the camper.. this is one of the times where a plain looking van would've blended in better, though i didn't have any issue.  i explored a little of the east side of the bay and then took one of the bridges back west.  on my way to san francisco, i stopped at a hobby shop to replace the broken propellor for the model i crashed three days earlier.  in san francisco i explored a few of the parks in the middle of the city that had nice panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhoods and city.  i never knew these existed and hadn't seen them during my first visit.  it was neat to check them out and explore somewhere a bit different than the typical tourist attractions.  after seeing a few of them, i headed to a camera shop downtown to check out a used lens before meeting a friend who worked in town.  i checked out the event venue where she worked and then we went to the source, a vegetarian restaurant, for dinner.  while there, i ordered an elixir, divine guidance, and felt like i was receiving the guidance or inspiration during our great conversation.  it was great to see my friend.. it had been years since we'd seen each other before that.  i gave her a ride home back across the bay.. she said it was a safe area so i stayed in the camper on the street there (though didn't pop the top). before getting to sleep (and the next morning), i wrote some insights and feelings i was experiencing.  it was awesome to feel more aware, present, in the moment, and be able to feel and understand more deeply.

i spent the night in the guest room at my uncle and aunt's home in austin.  after being in the small camper for many nights, it was nice to have a bit more space to move about.  in the morning we went to a local place for breakfast, and i remember my uncle telling me about a comic book project he was working on.  it was nice to see them and chat for a bit in the morning.  i left in the middle of the day to meet a home builder in a town a little east of there whom specialized in concrete earth-sheltered homes.  i saw one of the houses he had built and learned about the technique.

i then made my way over to the houston area where i met a couple friends.  it had been a while since i'd seen them and it was nice to see them on my way back to florida.  my friend showed me his delorean which he didn't have there when i had visited a few years earlier.  it looked great.. he had kept it in really good condition.  he told me a story of how he took it to a drive-thru and was stuck with his arm out the little window unable to get the big drink he ordered in.  we had pizza for dinner and talked or watched tv for a little while, and i spent the night in their guest room.  again, it was nice to get a little bit of a break from the small space of the camper.

i woke up and drove across the bay to san francisco to meet a couple of other friends who happened to be visiting san francisco.  it was overcast and foggy that day.  we went to eat at the vegetarian restaurant i'd been to the day before, the source.  afterwards, we went to explore the piers and saw the sea lions before going on a ride to see the golden gate bridge.  we left the bridge welcome center, drove by the coast a little, and then went down lombard street.  it was nice to spend time with them when we happened to be in the area.  we had a good conversation about group thinking and i remember one of my friends saying how i didn't really conform to any group.  after we parted ways, i drove east and spent the night at a campground between sacramento and lake tahoe.

the next day i wrote something about how it was funny to think about the city as a meeting place.  it was neat that i met friends from both florida and chicago when i was out in san francisco.  two lived there and two were just passing through.  i thought of how it was similar to how we all happen to be on earth at the same time and show up in each other's lives.  perhaps we all had decided and planned these meetings long before we even showed up on this planet.
