“A wise traveler never despises his own country.”William Hazlett

. . . .

Although the highways to Las Vegas and back are quite desolate and seemingly lifeless (Death Valley included), there is a certain quite beauty and grandeur about it all. Those long, straight highways offer the traveler much needed time for contemplation. No daydreaming, though, or falling asleep at the wheel!

It’s very hard for me to eat well while traveling. I’ll be honest about that. The one important thing for me is to eat small portions and keep my energy up. That is the one thing I’m doing quite well now, regardless of where I am.

I don’t go to a restaurant and “pig out” until it’s food coma time. Overloading the system is the worst.

Instead, I usually finish half of the food and box the rest up for later. So, I’ve been eating leftovers from yesterday.
