Ojai Sessions, Getting Ready

Ojai, California

Snow Pea’s odometer turned 100,000 on the way here, a ways south of Salinas. Rocinante III held snugly to the spare tire on back thanks to a stop at Wildhorse Road truck stop where I finally found the cargo strap that would fasten the front & back wheels together so the front wouldn’t wobble back & forth & the back would stop freewheeling. Sometimes bungee cords are just not enough.

I’ve taken a couple of days to settle in & get my exercise stuff organized. That’s right, primary instrument, body, thing one. Had a great ride through town taking care of errands (produce! spices! sea salt! Bart’s Books! gym!) & I’m looking forward to riding down to the Sunday Farmers Market & loading greens into the saddlebags.

Now I’ve washed off the sweat, had my healthy lunch and waved goodbye & hello to the same 2 pounds that keep coming & going. It’s about time to get a guitar out & get down to songwork so I’ll have something ready for Martin on Monday.
