Difficult Start

rainTalk about great luck., right from first day I encounter heavy rain as I’m passing Jersey City. Thankfully I am well prepared but that doesn’t mean it was comfortable driving during the downpour. As I’ve reached Parsippany¬† I decided to stop and get some rest, driving all day during the rain isn’t very fun after all. I took a cheap room for rest of the day and the night, hoping weather would be great next day and I could be on my merry way. I stuffed myself with junk food and went for my beauty sleep.

Next morning was absolutely terrible. I woke up with a headache and had to puke, barely even reached the toilet. Perhaps driving in the rain and then stuffing myself with junk wasn’t one of the best ideas I’ve had in my life. Thankfully I was informed by the motel manger that apothecary wasn’t very far from here. I walked there, stumbling the whole way praying for this agonizing pain in my head would stop. I picked up all kinds of pills, went back to my room and just fell a sleep from exhaustion. As I was waking up couple of times during the day to get some nutrients and medicine I kept thinking how this trip isn’t as fun as I was hoping it would be.

The next day, which would be right now, I felt quite a bit better in the morning. I’m quite certain I will be resuming my ride tomorrow, there are still tons of things I have to do when I arrive so no point in lollygagging.

    dude have you ever heard of a weather channel or something, why did you start on day when it was obvious it will rain? you did recover quick tho, perhaps it was just the food you ate messing with you.
    best of luck dude, you got thousands of miles ahead of you
