Day Sixty Six… Still Battling The Darkside… 08/01/15

So I woke up in #Monroe,Pennsylvania… I drove until 2am as promised… If it wasn’t for the ridiculous traffic in #NewYork I would have gotten much further… But hey, what are you going to do? I’m starting to really dislike New York… The roads are awful, I seem to have bad luck in that state now and the traffic is out of control… I have decided to avoid that state for a few months at least… Just until my luck improves…

Trusty old #Walmart was there for me once again… Around 1am I pulled up my #AllStayWalmartApp… Yes, they have their own app for parking now which is really convenient… I found one right off of the freeway… As you can see I wasn’t the only one taking advantage of this convenience…

I went into Walmart to buy some #ToiletDeodorizerTablets for #TheMillenniumFalcon… I really don’t want to shop there considering it is owned by two sisters and a brother who are worth well over 100 million each but yet they want to pay their employees next to nothing with no benefits… But I can’t seem to find these tablets anywhere else and I need them for my #RV so she smells nice and clean…

I have to say #America needs to go on a diet… I’m not being mean but everyone in this store was over weight and their carts were full of junk food and crap they didn’t need… I know I sound like a broken record but this is what the #Corporations want people! They want mindless eating machines to just buy, buy, buy… The more out of shape you get the more money they make because I feel most of these people have lost hope and are just feeding their displeasure with life by stuffing their faces… By doing this we are just giving them more control and when they get all of the control, trust me, it will not be pretty… There is nothing wrong with convenience but when you are starting to lose control over your own life, that’s when you need to wake up!

I was soon back on the road at 10:30 am and ready to do a marathon drive… I was finding myself very aggravated today… #T-mobile texted me and had changed my plan without my permission… I had to call and fight with them for an hour to get it back to the way I like it… This lady just couldn’t get that I wanted 200 MB of #DataRoaming because I am #traveling #CrossCountry… When I hit areas that are not T-mobile coverage my #apps eat up my data roaming, which I need to travel… She kept on trying to convince me that the upgrade would get me free #Rhapsody music and this plan was better… But it would only leave me with 50 MB of data roaming…I finally got so aggravated I demanded a supervisor…

When I explained my situation to the supervisor, she understood why that 200 MB was so important and changed my plan back… I literally had to scream on the phone to get the supervisor because this agent was so adamant about the upgrade… The representatives don’t even listen to you anymore… I know I’m right about this ordeal because it took me hours to get my account set up to assist me on my travels… I spend more time on the phone with these assholes than I do with my own family! It’s insane! I just want to be left alone and use the convenience they are supposed to provide for me, which I pay for by the way… But it seems I am always cleaning up their messes… I couldn’t believe an agent changed my plan without even discussing it with me… If it wasn’t for a text from T-mobile about the plan change I would have been really upset when my data roaming had run out… What a mess we have created folks! It seems I can’t even enjoy life anymore without having to get on the phone with these gigantic companies! Pretty soon I’m just going to get rid of the phone… I can’t have my time randomly hijacked anymore! It’s driving me crazy!

I put on one of my #SelfHelpTapes which was about a man who has looked at life positively since he was a child… Yeah… it has gotten that bad folks…. I am now listening to self help tapes… I know they sound corny but they do help reset your mind…

I was glad to be on the road driving again… I just thought about life and mulled over my displeasure with all of this mess… I know this feeling would soon pass and after what I have been through the past month I think I have the right to sulk a little… Just ignoring the whole situation isn’t any better the way I look at it… It then just carries over to the next disaster when it happens because you haven’t come to terms with it… And you know my ass is going to see other disasters! lol… I am like a single Sparky Griswold… Imagine if I had a family with me! Don’t count that one out in the future and you know I will be writing about it…

There is nothing like being on the road and being forced to make a destination at a certain time… If I had no destination I would have probably pulled over and gone to bed, I was so aggravated and tired… But getting to #TheColoradoDreamRanch was too important and forced me to continue this #journey regardless of my mood…

Just seeing the #SunSet makes your worries seem so insignificant… I can’t explain the #HealingPower #nature has and it’s hard to pry yourself away from life so you can enjoy its emense power… The past month I have been trapped in #NewYorkCity and #Plymouth,Massachusetts wondering what my fate will be… The whole time I dreamed of being back out in #nature… It’s hard to go out there and be by yourself for long periods of time… But I highly recommend just trying it once in your life… Go out there for a week, by yourself… It will be hard at first but you will see what I mean when you head back home… I know we are all not the same but I really do think time alone with no worries or commitments is #SoulHealing for everyone…

We are all apart of this world and we all come from it… Yet we choose to ignore it a good majority of the time… Be it on the #beach, out in the #woods or even a long, long drive… Just as long as you are secluded and alone with this beautiful planet… It’s power is indescribable and once you are spoiled with what it provides, you will always think of it when everyday life becomes unbearable, eager to get back out there for some more healing power…

By the time I was looking for a #Walmart to camp out in, I felt all that aggravation slip away… I went to bed a new man looking forward to what tomorrow would bring… Goodnight…

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
