THE LONESOME HEROES

OUR NEW BLOG: "LIVING IN A POSTCARD..."

LIVING IN A POSTCARD...    (Our new blog)

We have decided to join the 20th Century and begin keeping a blog.

We will try to write interesting things that y'all want to read. A random assortment of Dutch oven recipes, hidden campsites, Landry's new art projects, and all the rad people we meet on the road.

LIVING IN A POSTCARD...

It's a concept that predates the World Wide Web. It's some sort of Walt Whitman wanna be Jack Kerouac-ian compulsion to drive through the night and sleep on the side of the road with cars rushing past, afraid of bears, insane truckers, ghosts, or whatever, so that you can wake up in the morning and discover something new and distant, and feel like perhaps for that moment all your rushing was worth it, because you are living inside a postcard. 

Here's our postcard from this morning:

 BALMOREA MORNING

It was 22 degrees when we woke up this morning at a "roadside table," as we call it, somewhere outside Balmorhea, TX. There was ice on the ceiling of the van and Landry and I were safe and warm sleeping in our clothes under two down blankets.
