“Don’t worry about it.” Famous last words.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve had to take the highway 93 into work. Going to work and coming home has made me a neurotic mess every day. I HATE that route. Happily, the road construction is done and I can go back to my normal route.
I really like my back country road where I can kick back and relax. There’s only one spot on the road at the overpass where it joins the interstate that I have dubbed, “The Gauntlet.” People are always trying to race through The Gauntlet, while there’s traffic coming off the highway, people getting onto the highway, people turning on and off another country road (and there’s not much distance between here and the highway off ramp), or people going to a coffee shop or Subway. You literally have to watch five directions at once while keeping one eyes behind you and the other beside you. Even yesterday morning as I was heading into work, someone pulled out from the country road with a trailer. I’m certain that they couldn’t see me behind the traffic coming off the highway. Fortunately, I was using my omnivision and saw him. I was breaking before I even saw his face in front of me. Surprise! My car, love her dearly, can stop on a dime and she did so.
Once you’re through The Gauntlet, you can kick back and relax. Then it’s just a matter of watching to make sure people are really going to stop at the stop signs at the intersections every mile or so. It’s a much more relaxed drive.
So what does all this have to do with the quote at the top?
Well, Moonhunter is about to take a little trip. Next week we’ll get into it more and for him it’ll then be more like running through The Gauntlet. But you’ve got to start somewhere. He certainly didn’t have to do anything similar to driving down highway 93. Beyond that, you will have to get through the chapter to find out.
Let’s begin, shall we?
