August 14

I did 19 miles today and I’m in my tent in the Bala Cemetery. I’m near the Mackender and the Hollen-Davis family plots. I love tenting in cemeteries because you know no one is going to bother you. It’s just been mowed and it’s nice and level! I guess you could say, I’m a happy camper! I did ask permission but no one said anything. Oh, and I’m near Fort Riley Military Reservation and right this moment I can hear lots of machine gun fire and they’re blowing up stuff. And, there are all kinds of helicopters buzzing around. Do I live an exciting life or what! LOVE LIFE my friends.
