Still no sign of land. Morale is low. Tensions run high.

We awake to find that we are in Nevada. It is one 1,000,000˚ degrees Fahrenheit outside the van. Inside the van, it is one million 1,000,001 and one degrees˚ Fahrenheit. We stop for gas and gallons of water.

Hindershot Tour Diary Day 8 - Merced, CA

Aug 2


Still no sign of land. Morale is low. Tensions run high.

It takes a while to get everyone moving this morning. We have a few hours off, and that's confusing. We don't know what to do with ourselves. We wander the Haight and find some breakfast. Lucas and Emily have gone to a festival in Golden Gate Park. Everyone else is thinking of going shopping.

DIANA: “Well, we should make a decision and just do it instead of sitting around.”
STUART: “That's how we roll: sluggish.”
DIANA: [to Patrick] “Can I have some of your toast?”
ME: “You can have a whole piece of mine.”
