The weather is closing in and it's time to get a move on

About 1:30 today I finally got things arranged on the home front to the point where I could take off. I didn't get far today.

First on the agenda was a stop at All Season's RV Center in Pittsfield MA to get my propane tank topped up and from there I headed west through Albany NY and then down I-88 as far as Oneonta NY where I holed up in the Walmart parking lot for the night.

Shopping for sensation

The purest example of human shopping I know of can be seen by watching a child go through life touching absolutely everything. You’re watching that child shop for information, for understanding, for knowledge, for experience, for sensation. Especially for sensation, otherwise why would he have to touch or smell or taste or hear anything twice? Keep looking: Watch a dog. Watch a bird. Watch a bug. You might say the ant is searching for suitable food. I say he is shopping.
