King of the Road...

Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let...fifty cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but..two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let...fifty cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but..two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

I know every engineer on every train
All of their children, and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that ain't locked
When no one's around.

I sing,
Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but, two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

It's been a great relaxing 5 days in Humboldt County and Arcata, but it's time once again to hit the road. The weather has been near perfect, although the locals have been trying to convince me that it's usually grey and overcast most of the time here. I think it's just their way of keeping Arcata a secret from the rest of the country. 

This is one naturally beautiful spot, with friendly people and a town/county with plenty of character and community. The above photos were taken over the weekend at the Arcata Saturday Farmer's Market centered around the town's plaza.

A big thanks again to Jim, Pam, Alexis and Mr. Pickles for treating me like family - I love you guys.
