With great reluctance and will, I’ve finally been able to
tear myself away from Standing Rock by promising to return quickly after I’ve
winterized my camper.
Driving into Bismarck to stock up for my long trek home, I’m
alerted and amused to see I’ve picked up a police escort a mile or so out of
town – only one sheriff’s cruiser but I’m thinking in the future this could be
a strategic action, especially if a couple more cars were added to make a small
caravan. We could troll around the city, stopping at tactical locations like
the capitol building, etc., diverting attention from the main action!!!
I pull into Dan’s Supermarket parking lot and lose the
tail but gain an ally! A white womon hurries across the asphalt to me, introducing her San
Francisco self, and letting me know her family saw my police tail and began to
tail the police for me!!!
Then she told me that her family had been on their way to
spending this coming week with her husband’s New England relatives but upon
hearing they voted for tRump, she decided to cash their airplane tickets in and
head for Standing Rock instead!
Now that’s holding family accountable!
She then contributed a much needed $40 to my rapidly
diminished funds for getting home!
