This morning Hunter and I did the unthinkable. We drove Mark out 25 miles into the country and left him on the side of the road to be picked up by some trucker on the way to Santa Fe. The idea struck me as not unlike abandoning a puppy to the side of the highway. What made the situation weirder was that I pulled into a parking lot so we could say our goodbyes to Mark, and then as I parked the car we realized that also in the lot were a lot of jail trusties and a sheriff's guy doing yardwork. They gathered in a group at their truck as we tried to bid farewell to Mark and his passle of rucksacks.
Good luck Mark on your crazy journey.
