The old man Jim is driving his old truck Jill East, through the South, just to be alive and moving!
He is sleeping in Jill's truck bed as often as possible. His shotgun is onboard, along with all necessary electronics, and condiments.
He just treated her to some fresh oil, with exam. Created 35 years ago, she is road ready and anxious to go, with new tires screaming Ride Me!
And he really hopes that he starts back writing in the first person.
Update: I reread this post and realized it sounds like I'm actually on the road. I'm not, planning to, just not doing it yet.
