Two weeks at 'home'.
Cleaning, polishing, greasing, oiling, tightening, loosening,..
laying two hours, in the bath-tub,..
after playing the past few months, on the 'Road',
- that's called: "Relaxing".
(Capital 'R'.)

We pulled it together.
Pushed the Truck through German Inspection,..
(they have a 'Computer-controlled Brake Test Maschine',.. that is sooo sensitive,..
it even tells you the amount of cellulitis on your po!)

...,packed the winter clothes, picked the pears,...peddled out last night.
This morning, after driving an endless evening of detours,
we woke up 155 kilometers from our pear tree.
Braunschweig. (Brunswich.)

It's somehow become a frustrating tradition,
the 'first day out',.. we sleep in(!).
My baby woke me with a coffee,
"Happy Equinox."
Equinox.
I'm going to call this tour, 'Equinox'.
,nothing to do with Fort Knox,.
but hopefully something better,..
balence.

"Why are you writing?"
I like to say, "I write to understand myself."
,curiosity,.. confusion,..
,this Tour, I'd like to write,..(HOPE to write!),.. again 'for myself',
but for others, as well.
Most of what I've learned, came from others;
who allowed me to peek over their shoulder.
I could peek, pick, pluck, ponder,... while they plowed.

Equinox,.. a bit of balencing out.

No autobahns, trains, planes, or submarines.
Back-streets, springy-seats,.. and little townes.
We'll try not to make it an 'ego-trip'.*
..,no idea what's going to happen.

A 'Vague Plan'.
"... we're off to see the Wizard!..."
haa,.!,.. actually,.. yes.
There IS a guy,.. a great Magician,... a Street Magician,.. I'm off to visit.
He's somewhat illusive amongst Magicians,..but,..
I really don't know him.
He REALLY doesn't know me.
He has NO idea we're coming(!).
I plan knocking on his door.
Say, "Hi."
Ask him to invite me in,.
feed me,..
and allow me to look over his shoulder,..a bit.
I'll tell you more about the guy later,.. as we get a bit closer to his 'hide-out'.

As the arrow flies, he lives 410 kilometers from my pear tree. (275 miles.)
It'll take us about 1200 kms. Four weeks.
Time,.. flies like an arrow.
Time also flies,.. when you're having fun.
,we're going for the fun(!).
Tomorrow,.. Braunschweig.

,parking in Braunschweig.

,on the 'Road', you get it ALL(!).
Trees. Wild parks. Trucks, trafic, and,.. all together!

,getting ready for 'the Show'.
https://flic.kr/p/pmuJxg
,.. ok, I blew her hair-cut,.. once,.twice,.. maybe six times;
,but that she doesn't give me one more go at it,..!
frustrating.
thanks for reading,.. so far(!).
give it easy,
gallagher.

* I do reserve the right to Brag a bit, though,..oK.
,.. every now and then,..
when no one else is posting.
