CHAPTER 4: City Life & WiFi

Been a week off the farm, spending time in Eureka with Russ. Now I\’m in Arcata couch-hopping to find my next pathway. I\’m at a friend-of-a-friend\’s house, kickin\’ it on the couch with my laptop (internet! yum.) & a movie. Suddenly there is a rumble that moves the couch forward & back a couple of times as if someone were pushing from the wall behind me. I wonder, \’Is dude moving furniture over there?\’ WHAT IS UP? Maybe a car crashed into the house… nah – but maybe… My friend comes out and goes, \”Wasn\’t that cool? An earthquake!\” And his roommate opens the door from the porch and goes, \”I just watched the walls of the neighbor\’s house quiver!\” SO I JUST EXPERIENCED MY FIRST EARTHQUAKE – AND I DIDN\’T EVEN KNOW IT!

(B-ROCK: This one\’s for you!!)

Registered 4.5 (see comments)!
Like, whoa.
