That's right. I'm in Texas now. Plains, to be exact. Frigid at the start and first half. Then I crossed into Texas. Within a half hour the sun came out and it warmed up about 10 degrees. It was wierd but I welcomed it. I might have even done a little dance just to welcome the sun. Who knows? It's not like anyone saw me; I'm still in the middle of nowhere! And if you ask me, I'll deny it.

Today, was kind of bitter sweet. Yes, I crossed into Texas but today was the last day with my Grandpa. He's on his way home now and from here on out, it's me and my shadow.

Today I ran not for Maggie, but for Maggie's family. They need your support now, so please keep them in your thoughts.

  1. PATRICK, you're in the middle of nowhere, but you're not alone. There are people who are following your every step. When you look down at your shadow doesn't it seem a little too large? We are all there, hiding, just like your parents would do when you wanted to walk to school by yourself. Be safe. Be careful; and speaking for myself and maybe some others; your blogs and videos will be so much more important now. keep enjoying the open road.

    Texas, make way for the new LONE STAR!

  2. I am sorry to see that your Grandpa is heading home but I am glad he stayed with you a lot longer than planned. Keep your spirits up, you are doing an awesome job!!!
