October 12, 2004 -- I've made it to Ogden, Utah where I've stopped to get on the Internet for a bit. I want to go a few more miles before I shut down for the evening. I've got about 623 more miles to go to make it to my destination of Grandview, Washington, where I unload early Thursday morning.

My neck is getting a bit itchy, mostly because I can't shave the new tattoos for probably at least another week and a half. My neck seems to be healing faster than other parts of my body do so. It really hasn't given me much trouble at all.

I'm looking forward to being able to shave again!
