Lessons of the Road

I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

I have been learning the hard way that I have to fill up whenever I am at half a tank. Sometimes gas stations are far and in between. I was close to running out of gas twice. Distance between gas stations? 150 miles. No cell phone. No service phones on the side of the road. No cars passing. One time was in the snowy mountains of Idaho. One time was in the desert in Nevada.
If i were to get stuck in the middle of the road, I do not want to imagine what might happen because I've seen cars on the side of the road and no one stops for them. Gulp! 
This trip is more dangerous than I thought. I went through a snow storm, a rain storm, a hail storm, and gust storms and my car was all beat up. and so far I've been through California, Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada. Oh yeah the fogs suck too. I already need my first oil change!
