back in Columbia, South Carolina

25 Sep 2007, Tuesday. At 4 am I stood naked and panic-stricken on the balcony of the motel 40 feet from the room as the car horn sounded repeatedly following my attempt to lock the car with the remote. By 7 pm I was in Columbia enjoying another Gigantic Titanic Banana Split at Sandy's Famous Hot Dogs. This may be the last Where Is Ron Now post for a while as I intend to stay here until completing the other four volumes of the Rambo Family Tree. (Yes, the galley proofs arrived and are nearly perfect, but will have to go back for correction.)

Successful "shakedown cruise"

16 Sep, Sunday: Cousin Cynthia and I are preparing to go hiking somewhere in the Shenandoah National Park today.

13 Sep 2007, Thursday: Today I hiked into Daleville, VA and had breakfast at Mill Mountain. They also serve ice cream and turned my 4-scoop plate order into a banana split. Wowie, zowie. The hike was a complete success and I'm elated and pumped for next years through-hike.
