The Weary Traveler

I didn’t have a need for packing anything to take along with me on my adventure, but I did need to make sure my body was covered properly in case of rain during the week of September. Before, the truck ride to my final destination I stopped into our post office to say goodbye one last time.
I’ve heard so many good things about our post office where all of the letters and packages go to be processed and shuffled on their way toward their own destinations with fresh fancy stamps placed on their upper right corner and with a thud sound of the postage mark to the left of the stamps it was declared this parcel had begun its travels from Independence, Kentucky with a date of its departure clearly visible.
What an exciting time this was for me beginning my first adventure across the country, but first I would need to back track and travel to Richmond, Texas before my actual adventure traveling to Canada begins.
I was warned in a whisper by an elder that once I arrived in Richmond, Texas I would be placed up for inspection to make certain I was the proper one to travel the great distance to Canada. Only the bravest souls were allowed to leave Richmond after they were granted permission to embark on this quest across the country.
The layover in Richmond I was told could perhaps be a lengthy one, because this place had so much going on at any given time. So, my journey begins all safely tucked inside of the truck with a destination of Richmond, Texas on my horizon.
To be continued next Friday, so stay tuned for Part Three….
