Most breathtaking view:
Thunderstorms in Nevada, rock formations in Wyoming

Most interesting thing he saw
Old man driving a bus that was converted into a trailer on the back hauling a jeep

How you passed the time driving
Listened to Phil Jackson’s Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success
Came up with Haikus
Listened to a lot of music

$3.50

Go-to snack from gas stations
Trail mix and beef jerkey got me through the trip

Best song you heard
Graceland when I was pulling in to the final destination was fitting

What was it like sleeping in the truck?
I preferred it to getting a hotelFirst night I slept at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. I slept 8.5 hours, the most in three months.
Second night I slept at a rest stop in Iowa. It was louder and closer to the highway but I slept well.
