Kearney really is the middle. They claim to be 1733 miles from both Boston and San Francisco. There were cousins from Texas, California, Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa. Aunt Dorothy, who I believe is ninety, said she guessed she was "the last of the Mohicans" but also disavowed any responsibility for behavior. There was a little peanut shuck throwing incident at dinner.
So where from here? Like the pioneers, we will be striking out to parts unknown, foraging for food, searching for safe havens each night, and hopefully not having to turn the trailer on its side as a fortification against attack. Hopefully also, we run into a laundromat and supermarket. I guess there's always the Internet.
