I have finished working on the movie, “Devil’s Knot”, and am now back in Missouri. It was a fun experience. I sat by Reese Witherspoon in one scene. She was very nice and actually introduced herself to me, shook my hand, and conversed a little. I should be easy to spot in the movie since I’m sitting right next to her. Although working on the movie was a fun experience it wasn’t really a profitable one. After paying for my room, gas to get there and back, and taxes I’ll probably barely break even.
Since my funds are limited right now I decided to skip hiking and head back to Missouri. I need to be here anyway to take care of some legal matters. Since it is still hot I’ll be staying at my Mom’s for the next month. If I were fully mobile I’d go north or to higher elevation to get away from the heat, but I need to be here now. I still plan on going on a road trip starting sometime in August. Other than that my plans are not clear. I need to work on that since it is hard to make progress when you don’t know where you’re going. It would be good to accomplish a few things during my stationary month.
