Check out the audio file below. It represents a new addition to the blog which I hope will save me some time. Ain't workin' so far though: it took me forever to make this post.
Just so you know, I'll be in Wichita, KS, by this Sat. the 19th.

[img_assist|nid=180|title=Here's one of the rooms I stayed in at the Mercy House when I sprained my ankle. When Georgia brought me from the hospital, she suggested I load my pack into this old shopping cart that was in the drive so she could push it into my room for me. When I later returned it to the outdoors, it was odd pushing a shopping cart through a house. I felt like I should be gathering up lamps and coasters and looking for the check out line. |desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=183|title=Back on the road again where I get a free tanning effect every day!|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=184|title=O.K. it's a terrible picture, but this is Robert---whose family took me in on my way through Pauls Valley, OK---and the family gopher. Robert found it near death one day and nursed it back to health. He then read up on what was required for a gopher's survival, and prepared him/her a tank of dirt in which to burrow and live. The little critter feeds upon the roots of plants that grow on the surface. Look at the claws on that digger! I had no idea that gophers were sort of like giant moles. I thought they were like groundhogs. In order to get the creature out, Rob had to collapse all its tunnels which I would have thought might traumatise the little blighter. But it seemed very calm and docile when it emerged. After being placed back upon the earth it had sort of vibrated beneath the surface and re-established half of its tunnels within about 10 minutes.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=182|title=I've seen far more tarantulas in Oklahoma than anywhere else, when I ran across this customer I thought I'd be cool and snap a shot of it on my foot. It seemed like we were in a movie together when it got a little spooked and scurried up the inside of my pants leg. I've handled quite a few tarantulas before, including wild ones, and always found them to be quite laid back and this one was no exception. Nevertheless I had a little jolt of primal fear before I regained my composure. I then gingerly used my hands to seal my pants leg around my knee from the outside and gently shook the giant arachnid free.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=181|title=These cattle looked at me from under their shady tree like I was an idiot as I walked by in the mid-day heat.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=177|title=Here is Martin, Zach and Lane's resident gouldian finch. Aside from his plumage, he is remarkable because he sounds like four birds singing at once all around you. zach and Lane gave me food, shelter, music and fine company in Norman, OK.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=316|height=422][img_assist|nid=178|title=Here is David and his dogs Maggie (left) and Ginger. David plucked me from a cadre of curious cops who thought they'd clandestinely converged on a corner of my course in Oklahoma City. He let me stay for three days in his house which enabled me to get the news coverage that I detail in the audio file this blog post contains.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316][img_assist|nid=179|title=The girls and I.|desc=|link=url,http://|align=left|width=422|height=316]
