Settling the bar tab (Drive Day 129: November 6th, 2003)
Would a bar in the states let you rack up hundreds of dollars in beer while you openly admit to planning to leave the country? Dennis and Sheila never doubt we’ll make good, or that we’ll ever forget them. We lose a hand of poker on our last night and made the rounds of XS Memories regulars to say goodbye to people and animals who feel like neighbors. Tomorrow the goodbye will be even harder – when we drop the camper off at the dock and head for an airport to Ecuador.
