“Polly’s tied up in the wind to a road sign that says “Pinon Creek Rd” – a road that leads from dust to more wind.”
That’s how the letter started. I posted it from a gravel truck crossing Crow Flats instead of the post office. Here’s a letter to the outside world from the Lost Sea Expedition wagon. Continue reading “Letter from the Lost Sea Expedition”
“Bernie…..have you lost your DAMN mind?” That’s what folk artist Charlie Frye said when I asked him to paint 30 paintings for the Lost Sea Expedition the series about my 14 month wagon mule voyage across America.
But I know Charlie’s about more than roosters, rusty trucks and bootleggers. Then Charlie started painting. Here’s more on how Charlie went from painting owls to dead fish.
One of the main reasons it took 14 months to travel across my mule Polly is that I relied on word of mouth – not technology – to find my way from Canada to Mexico.
I didn’t have a smartphone, GPS, wifi connection, digital maps or sat phone. Instead, I wanted to interact with people. That’s how I ended up on the receiving end of a sketch map and the giving end of three jars of honey.
Funny how a man and his mule can set out to find something – say a Creationist – and run in to something completely different – like a magnificent painter of album covers.
Some times, they’re the same man.
