Retirement ups and downs and the slow passage of time

I have been retired for about 3 years now.

Retirement is great with many advantages. I am grateful for the freedom and autonomy. It is welcome not to be under a boss's thumb, and live a harried life of time restraints, being violently jarred from pleasant dreaming by a shrieking alarm clock, and having to scurry through shave, shower, breakfast and a combative commute, only to be chained to a desk for the next 9 hours, and then return home to a dinner routine after which you might...

Having just raced across the continental United States from Sacramento, California in 4 days, including a final all-night stint, I am finally on the verge of crossing the state line and get my first look at the Great State of Tennessee.

As I cross the border and roll into Tennessee, the natural scenic beauty of Kentucky continues. It is lush and green and wonderful, until about a mile or 2 down the road...

All Night Long

Day 3, leaving Laramie on my drive from my old home in Sacramento, California to my new apartment in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Yet another 10:00 am start. It is hard to make good time when you keep leaving late.

The Best Western Laramie was very nice for $80, free breakfast appreciated. The gentlemen I joined recommend Idaho as the best state to live. One lives there. The other is moving there from California, and coincidentally worked where I used to work. I said...

Speed Trap -- Salt Lake City, Utah

Posted 05-05-2021 at 09:44 AM by Igor Blevin

I have seen almost no police presence on my blast across Interstate 80 from Sacramento to Salt Lake City, en route to my new home in Knoxville, Tennessee. All across Nevada, I did not see a single Highway Patrol car. None in Utah. Not until I hit a speed trap on the far end of Salt Lake City.

An old fart with nothing to prove, I poked my way across Salt Lake City in the right lane following locals. The flow of traffic is 10-mph over the posted speed, with Believer taking up ranks...
