Marching To The Trial
Day 5 - Tuesday, March 7, 2006

The Navigator has been saying for some time that he wants a theme song. I know he's just a dog but he performs a vital function on these trips so I figured, what the heck.
Unfortunately, he's very partial to Doggie Rap which I cannot stand. I finally convinced him to go with another type of music. (I have recently found that threatening to leave him on the side of the road works well :) Sometimes out in the boonies there is nothing on the radio. So for this trip I brought along a little over 1GB of mp3 tunes, all oldies. I suggested to The Navigator that he listen to these songs and choose one to be his theme song.
It took him awhile, but I think you'll agree he made a great choice:
"Free Ride" by the Edgar Winter GroupFits, doesn't it? The only problem now is that he is insisting his theme song be played every morning as he sets up the GPS unit and prepares the maps he'll need that day. Sigh...
Missouri and Louisiana have very similar physical landscapes. LA has more pine trees.
Tonight we're camped at (okay, you know the drill by now, all together) a Wal*Mart parking lot. (Great job!) This Wally World is in Clinton, MO.
We're about half way through our tour of Missouri. We'll be close to Illinois tomorrow night.

|Another sign for June. Where do you store all these signs?||The story of my life (inside joke, ya gotta be me to understand it).||Proudly waving. This flag is huge. 20 feet wide at least. Too bad it was cloudy when the pic was taken.||When The Navigator saw this sign he became very incensed and started talking about doggie bigotry. I asked him why he was so upset. He said, "First, dogs NEVER bluff, we just go and do it. Second, I am a carnivore, I DO NOT fish. Third, I'm glad they put a picture of a stupid raccoon on this sign. The sign is about the raccoon, not dogs. Raccoons bluff all the time. And they fish, too." Such are the rants of The Navigator. Sometimes he's a little hard to understand.|
|When The Navigator saw this picture of some trees and a riverbank, he said, "That picture is like a mirror. Do you think anyone will notice if you post it upside down?" Well??...|
