    Escape from "The Land of Entrapment" (N.M.)

    Taos, NM to Helena, Mt. in 19 hrs.

    The morning held little promise. The spraying had placed my mind in a barium fog with slight overtones of an aluminum oxide deficit disorder restlessness.
    ...then there was the obvious sign.

    I decided to check in on "the roommate/renter"... 74 years old, entitled, narcissistic, and unable to change his bedsheets in 2 years....not only living here but also under the mistaken impression that he was managing the place as well.
    I had enabled him for too long.

    I asked him to move and he threated to beat me up. He is in congestive heart failure, has an annuerism that is ready to pop, bad kidneys, blood in his urine....


    So I prayed for guidance, woke up the next morning and decided to hit the road north.

    Sometimes you just have to take care of yourself. The hard part was making the decision to ask the current girlfren to stay and help this guy move out. My part would be to remove the testosterone from the situation. Suprisingly it was all good. So I packed up a bag, my trusted and devoted companion "Maggie", and a handtruck, and left. You never know when you'll need a handtruck.

    I prayed again when I noticed a church with a direct linkup to god.

    A last glimpse of rural America before we hit the freeway toward Denver, the gawdawful designated future North American capitol of the New World Order. Cities under mountains, a very strange airport, Aurora...a literal feast for conspiracy nuts.

    Well, it's about time I finished this chapter in my book of nonsense. Had a few days to decompress and then continued my journey west toward the land of the moss people. Took a few pics of Helena before I left. Nice white bread town that used to be a bit filthy with money. I was a bit uncomfortable because I found few people that would actually make eye contact with someone they hadn't seen before. I've been away from the "city" for too long, I guess. Down toward old town:

    The state capitol. State reps hand out candy in there. For real.
