Chapter 9

Highways and dead ends

The hunt for Xavier Ligonnès is enough to drive you crazy. It’s like looking for a lost object, a bank card for example, of which we can determine the exact moment of disappearance: we used it to pay, it was there, and the next moment it is not there anymore. Logic dictates that we look for it where we usually store it (a wallet, a handbag), then where it could be (a back pocket of pants, a hall cabinet), and the less we find it , the more we seem to see it everywhere. Faced with absence, the brain constructs images (the credit card in an office drawer, as a bookmark in a book, forgotten on the counter of the last store) but these are fictions or mirages; they encourage further research but they do not provide a solution. Xavier Ligonnès’s apparent volatilization follows the same logic and produces the same effects on the investigation. The more weeks and months go by, the more places to look get smaller. Emmanuel Teneur ends up leading the investigators to the Société Générale agency on Place Royale in Nantes, but the safe he holds there is simply empty. A request for information on Joven Soliman is sent to the security attaché for the French Embassy in the Philippines. He is a sedevacantist priest, a fringe of traditionalist Catholicism who considers the Pope to be an imposter. The attaché transmits the hours of mass where he officiates. A trip to the Philippines is being considered, but that would mean going to the other side of the world to look for a needle in the thousands of islands of the archipelago. If this track has never been closed, nothing has supported it to date.
Since we must push logic to the end, the investigators even contact the American authorities to corroborate or contradict the story of protected witnesses told by Ligonnès in his famous letter. The DEA has never heard of the individual, and the liaison officer based at the Miami consulate assures us that his last trip to the United States was in 2003: Ligonnès arrived in Florida on July 18 and left on August 22. The study of his entourage also did not highlight anyone capable of providing false papers to the fugitive, and if he had gone through a criminal network, the police believed that an informant would undoubtedly have warned them to protect himself.
Then there are the news reports: the portrait of Ligonnès goes around France, and even if he has undoubtedly changed his physical appearance, his hairstyle, perhaps had even resorted to cosmetic surgery, someone, somewhere, might recognize him one day. After all, that’s how John List, a New Jersey insurance salesman who killed his wife and mother in 1971, was arrested. He waited for two of his children to return from school to coldly shoot them, then attended his youngest son’s football game before shooting bullets through him at home. He evaded justice for 18 years until a co-worker recognized him from a report on America’s Most Wanted.
Rarely has a criminal case given rise to as many appeals as that of Ligonnès, because his stalking not only bewitches the police, it torments an entire country. More than 1000 reports, thousands of pages of depositions, letters, verifications. You have to imagine the miles of printed paper that this represents when they are stacked on a desk. The most recent: in July, after the broadcast of a Netflix documentary on the subject in the United States, the producers of the film claimed to have received an interesting lead in Chicago; but it’s just one more drop in the bucket. Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès has been seen in Annecy, Nancy, Cholet, Corsica (several times); on the side of a road, thumbs up, by a French tourist in Las Vegas; disguised as a chimney sweep in Nîmes; in a hotel in Cantal and in a pizzeria where he paid cash in a hurry; seen again in Germany, in Italy, and heard on the telephone by the reception of the psychiatric hospital of Troyes. Since he disappeared looking like the ordinary neighbor, since he was a representative and his profession has taken him to all corners of France, there is no less reason to see him in Mulhouse than in Roche-sur-Yon, and you can simply see him everywhere.
Aire de Lançon-Provence in July 2020
Extracts: “It was the same look, except that he looked very sad, in the west, but he had the same glasses as in the photo you are showing me”; “He looked like a man like everyone else, but there was something odd in his eyes;” “Yesterday, around 1:00 pm, I was watching the news on television on the TFI channel. I saw a report where an individual killed his children and his wife before disappearing into the wild. (...) Seeing the gentleman in the photo, I made the connection with the person whom I had crossed Sunday afternoon because he had the same smile.” At the Vauvert tourist office: “I hardly look at the news, but Thursday evening I saw the photo of Mr. Ligonnès, I had the impression of having already seen him, my heart was racing.” Between Carpentras and Avignon, when he comes back from the bakery, the manager of one of Nicolas Sarkozy’s brothers crosses paths with a man with a beige bob, which he is certain is the fugitive. “I flashed,” he says. “For me, there is no doubt. This is him.” Still more letters are sent to the police to offer them help. An amateur astrologer requests a copy of the suspect’s birth certificate to establish a birth chart, a woman in child-like writing recommended a great medium who had helped her find her daughter who had become a junkie in Marseille. A prisoner asked in writing to be sent to Guinea to go hunt him down in the jungle, attaching to his letter a list of the necessary equipment, including infrared glasses and a “samurai sword.”
With each letter, with each phone call to report a suspicious individual, investigators attempt to cross-reference the information. They patiently collect the testimonies of the depositors to know where Xavier Ligonnès was seen, if he was accompanied or not, what was his size and his outfit. Inconsistent testimonies or those referring to individuals who are too young (Ligonnès would be 59 years old today) and too small (he measures a little over 1.80 meters) are discarded. For the others, investigators check the CCTV recordings, when they have not been erased and when the cameras have actually recorded on tape. If the person has been spotted pumping gasoline, in a Géant Casino, or in a Courtepaille, they trace the means of payment used and seize the duplicates of bank cards. They give priority to the restaurants, especially the Buffalo Grill, Ligonnès’ favorite establishment. And when the trail is still hot and the dishes haven’t been done yet, they collect DNA from the plates and cutlery. A few months after the start of the investigation, the investigating judge in charge of the case will even be forced to ask them to slow down, the seals starting to take on the appearance of a china cabinet in a large restaurant.
The Total service station in Lançon-Provence, July 2020
The PJ of Nantes believed on several occasions to finally have in hand the winning ticket and to be on the point of intercepting Ligonnès. This was the case in Borgo, where a photo taken from the video surveillance of a supermarket in this small Corsican town was very similar. Upon verification, it was only a local. They believed in it even more in January 2018 when they were told that an individual with a strong resemblance to Xavier Ligonnès was at the Saint-Désert Notre-Dame de Pitié monastery near Roquebrune-sur-Argens. About twenty police officers raided and searched the premises until they came across Brother Jean-Marie Joseph, who certainly looked disturbingly like Ligonnès, but who was not him. In still other cases, the police were never able to “close the track,” and it is perhaps Ligonnès who was seen.
For example, in Lançon-Provence, April 26, 2011. That day, at 2:44 am, Mahjoub B., a handler by profession, parks his vehicle at the Total service station after the Lançon-Provence toll. He fills up, then goes to the store to pay. On his way, he passes a 45- to 50-year-old man, about six feet tall, who hangs out there between the gas pumps and the store. When he returns to his vehicle, his colleague asks him if he has seen the man, whom he is convinced is the one everyone is looking for, the one who killed his family in Nantes. Mahjoub then takes a new look at the individual, notices that he is wearing glasses, light jeans, that he has brown hair a little graying and a beard of a day. At his feet, four rigid shopping bags, one red, one white, one brown and one whose color he cannot distinguish. Inside the store, employees also noticed the individual. He’s been out for almost three hours. At one point, he walks in to ask for free coffee, as part of a promotion. Behind her cash register, Jocelyne H. notes a detail: he is missing a tooth. “The second on the left, I believe,” she says when heard by investigators. This is information that has never filtered out and yet, it’s true – a little detail, Xavier Ligonnès was missing a tooth. Little by little, the space has filled in, but you can always see it when he smiles. The images from the station’s surveillance cameras are confusing: if this man is not the one we are looking for, it must be his twin brother. At 3 a.m., the cameras show him hitchhiking by a Volkswagen Combi, which investigators quickly find. The driver’s name is Christophe B. He has not heard of the case, and he must be one of the only ones in the country; but Christophe is no longer listening to the news because, he says, “the news is bad all the time.” From the hitchhiker on the night of the 25th to the 26th, he remembers that he “did not smell very good” and that he had a growing beard. They didn’t discuss much. The man simply told him that he was coming from Paris where he had gone to see “his sick old father,” and that he wanted to take the train to Aix-en-Provence. Christophe dropped him off at a motorway exit, the 30 or the 31, between 4 a.m. and 4.15 a.m. The surveillance cameras at Aix train station allow you to get back on track. He is filmed on the forecourt at 6 am, he wears light pants, a dark jacket. He buys a ticket at 1.20 euro, free destination. Then we lose track.
Despite all the checks, despite all the cameras, it will be impossible to track this man perfectly resembling Dupont de Ligonnès, who could nevertheless have confirmed that he was, at least on this date, still alive.
How can one suddenly evaporate in plain sight, and how could a man who has collected chess all his life accomplish this feat? The XDDL mystery makes it possible to scaffold all the theories. These flourish in books, in docudramas and, of course, on the Internet. We imagine Ligonnès protected by the secrecy of a monastery, flown to the United States, where he can go unnoticed thanks to his English without an accent, or even on the escape alongside a woman he would have manipulated. The police officers in charge of the case do not work on theories or psychological profiles, but according to a scientific approach: they always start from a fact, which opens a track, which they then explore until the end, close, and move on to another. This method is also a way to protect yourself from endless guesswork, or insanity, but it doesn’t always work. Several times, the track looks like a highway towards the fugitive, and the police are convinced that they will finally close this investigation. But they end up stumbling upon the worst thing ever, as was the case with the allusion to Emmanuel Teneur’s sailboat: coincidences.
Coincidence number 1. When the Ligonnès C5 was discovered in the Formula 1 car park in Roquebrune, the night watchman informed them that two reservations had been made in the name of Dupont Xavier, one on April 5 and the another on April 14. The hotel manager then specifies that the first reservation was actually made for April 6. That day, however, XDDL was in Nantes, probably digging the grave of Thomas, murdered the day before. Had he thought of accomplishing his crimes earlier or had he reserved a room for an accomplice, who might have been hiding something for him? The videos of April 5 and 6 are no longer available, but payment for the room was made with a Crédit Agricole credit card. The number gives a name, Faiçal E., and an address. Could it be an accomplice? The checks are launched immediately lead to a man who simply used “Dupont Xavier” as an assumed name - like Ligonnès - to book a night in the same hotel, the same year, the same month, within ten days.
Coincidence number 2. The liaison officer in Miami launches research around the various aliases used by XDDL, for operations of “mystery shopper” or to stay in hotels. In the FBI file, he finds a certain Xavier Laurent, one of Ligonnès’s favorite nicknames, installed in Jacksonville, north of Florida. Jacksonville is not just any city. This is where Hugues, the cousin of XDDL lived, and it is also this locality that Ligonnès and his friend Michel Rétif declared to customs in 1990 during their trip to the United States. At the very end of the personalized letter sent to Michel on April 8, Xavier Ligonnès seemed to allude to it: “I will think about you there. (Not the right to tell you where, but you went there with me...in November 90…a clue to dig. LOL).” But this Xavier Laurent is another twist of fate: the police come across a certain Evan Shaffer, a petty criminal who has chosen this alias to commit crimes.
Coincidence number 3. Ten days before the crimes, XDDL reconnects with a childhood sweetheart, Catherine K., whom he met in Versailles in the 1980s. Between March 22 and 24, they exchange text messages and try to find a date to meet the week of April 12, in Chamonix. These messages intrigue the investigators, some answers seem surprising, almost illogical, and they suspect Ligonnès of having wanted to ensure a logistical relay in his escape. A little later, a certain Patrick O. reports having seen XDDL in the queue of a Sixt car rental agency at Nice airport on April 17, 2011. By peeling the names of dozens of people having rented a car that day, the police officers miss the infarction: in capital letters, white on black, appears the surname of Catherine, who would have rented a vehicle at 1:30 am. A few hours later, their heart rate drops again: it was only a perfect disambiguation.
Each coincidence causes the same chain of reactions. First a eureka!, the certainty of having finally found the tiny detail from which to trace everything. The police then cast their nets like fishermen on the high seas, telephone or banking requisitions, requests for listings, identity checks. Then they wait. It can last from a few hours to several weeks, and inevitably it is a burning, nagging wait, tense by the fear that the track will fly away. Finally, there is the immense disappointment and the obligation to face reality again: Xavier Ligonnès is still nowhere to be found, a track has flown again, and we have to hoist the rock up the mountain again. Those who have worked or are still working on the affair strive to maintain a cold, rational, police facade. But little by little, by dint of chasing a shadow - not even a shadow, a ghost - obsession lurks. One of them, a police officer with a professional Protestant pastor, now out of the investigation, still returned until recently to consult the investigation file every week, saying he simply wanted to put the 12,000 pages of documents in order. For a year, a criminal analyst has also been mobilized. He enters all the elements of the file in a software which digests them and spits out, perhaps, new threads to draw. In the meantime, the two police officers who are still following the investigation - one at the PJ in Nantes, one at the OCRVP, in Paris - “live” the case, as their colleagues say. Among these thousands of pages there is no doubt a clue that has gone unnoticed or, better, a lead that has not yet been explored.
Track number 1. Who typed “fraternité saint-thomas becket” on Google on April 3 at 11:34 pm, before clicking on a link in the Cité-Catholique forum? Is it the same person who, the same night at 2:01 am, from an iPhone, did the search for “communion state mortal sin,” bringing it to the same forum? On April 8, the user of this phone will in any case send the search engine the request “hello Chacou”, which will lead him (her) again to the Cité-Catholique forum. Chacou was one of the pseudonyms of Xavier Ligonnès. Investigators saw crazier coincidences, but still: can it really be someone other than Xavier Ligonnès, who himself connected to Cité-Catholique almost every day of his escape? The last article published on the site about Saint-Thomas Becket, an ultra-traditionalist fraternity which practices mass in Latin, dates from January 2009. It indicates the name of its founder, Father Jean-Pierre Gac, and specifies this: “Born in the diocese of Blois where there are two communities (…), the fraternity has also extended in the diocese of Toulon - a parish is also entrusted to them in Ollioules.” Ollioules is located six kilometers from La Seyne-on-Mer, where XDDL spent its penultimate known night, and 94 kilometers from Roquebrune. Jean-Pierre Gac was questioned by the police but claimed to have never been in contact with the fugitive. Investigators have always believed in the possibility that Ligonnès took refuge in a monastery in the Var. They considered to search them one by one, before understanding that there are dozens and dozens of brotherhoods and fraternities, that they are not always castles of the Purple Rivers but sometimes simple farms, lost in the hinterland. To mount a search, it would be necessary to ensure that they do not communicate with each other, and therefore to visit them all at the same time. The examining magistrate quickly tempered the fervor of the police and declared the operation impossible.
Track number 2. Xavier Ligonnès had two secret Facebook accounts. The first is named after his favorite country singer, Waylon Jennings. One of his nieces had also found him a month before the crimes, sending him a message, “but who is behind this nickname?,” to which XDDL had immediately replied “How did you manage to arrive on the Waylon Jennings Facebook profile? Too clever! Microsoft Advantage??? Kiss.” The second account concerns a certain “George Town” residing in Nantes and is linked to one of Ligonnès’ many email addresses, [email protected]. The police send a requisition to the management of Facebook in Palo Alto to obtain the creation and connection logs of the two profiles. The answer comes in days: the first was created in February 2010, the second in December 2007, when France had barely discovered the social network. Above all, the response indicates that Ligonnès connected to the two accounts on the night of April 4 to 5, between the first assassinations and that of Thomas. The profiles have since been deleted but suggest he could have used them to communicate with a third party. Catherine K., the youthful lover that XDDL contacted a few days before the tragedy, also reported to the police that she had been approached by a certain Philippe Steiner, whom she did not know, around May 20. He sent her a strange message, suggesting that they might have had a relationship in the past. When she went to respond, the profile had already been deleted. Today there are almost 100 Facebook accounts on behalf of Waylon Jennings, some are created and deleted every day.
Track number 3. When the Ligonnès family is having their last meal on April 3, 2011, around 9 pm, a young woman walks through the glass doors of the police station on Place Waldeck-Rousseau in Nantes. Originally from a small village near Vannes, Julie is a BTS student and comes to file a complaint: the Twingo that her father lets her drive has been broken into, probably during the night. There was not much inside, but Julie reported the theft of her car radio as well as the vehicle’s logbook, which she normally stored in a small Renault gray faux leather pouch. This same pouch was found on April 22 in the dresser of the Ligonnès living room where Xavier used to store his papers, during the investigation the day after the discovery of the bodies. The police did not follow this track: they put the break-in of Julie’s car on the account of one of the Ligonnès sons, Arthur, who had already been arrested for theft of a bicycle and driving under the influence of cannabis. But why would Arthur have taken the vehicle papers with the car stereo, and why would he put them in the middle of his father’s papers? And if the theft was committed by Xavier Ligonnès a few hours before killing his family, how can this be explained? Was he able to steal other identity papers to facilitate his escape?
In this case, it is always about cars. Those imported by XDDL from the United States, the Citroën C5 from the escape, the vehicles he claimed had been stolen over the years: the first at the Brest police station in 1998, while living in Pornic, a second at the same time at the Saint-Nazaire police station, and then again, in Nantes, on May 17, 2006, a Golf convertible finally found then sold a few months later to a mechanic, a friend of Cédric M.
Cédric M. is never far away when it comes to cars. He is also a mechanic, that’s how Ligonnès met him in Vannes a few years earlier. He is one of the recipients of the departure letter, therefore a close friend. He was even the first employee of the RDC. Ligonnès regularly went to visit him in Locmalo in the heart of Morbihan, a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Nantes. With Cédric and his partner, Renaud, they went to the local creperie. They had lunch there together on March 31, 2011, four days before the crimes. In the village, it is said that Ligonnès took care of the dark accounts of the “guys,” who have quite a reputation. Could he have built up a slush fund there that no one would have found until now? Cédric and Renaud’s garage is not indicated by any sign. It is at the end of a road. In the yard, wrecks of American cars and a goat on a leash. Inside, Renaud is working on a shiny yellow Cadillac. His attitude is confusing. He is angry with the police who have never come to question him when he is, according to him, “the last to have seen [Xavier] alive. But I will not tell you when, because that the date is important,” he adds before returning to his Cadillac, wrench in hand.
To date, Renaud has still not been heard by investigators.
At the same time, reports continue to flow.
Ligonnès seen in Mulhouse, on the four lanes between Saint-Brieuc and Rennes in a Peugeot 308 and overtaking on the right, Ligonnès seen again in Tunis and Toulouse.
Ligonnès seen, but never caught.

[Effortpost 6 of 15] Donald Trump's History of Bigotry

Based on the rhetoric of the 2016 Trump campaign, numerous racially charged tweets, anti-immigrant policies, and even the lack of diversity within his own staff, it doesn't seem surprising to say that Donald Trump is a bigot.
Bear in mind that this will be quite long. It'll be broken down into three categories: pre-presidency, 2016 candidacy, and presidency. I should note that this post won't contain everything, so at the end I'll add other compilations of his remarks towards different groups.

Pre-Presidency

The 1970s:
The 1980s
The 1990s
The 2000s
The 2010s

2016 Candidacy

Presidency

Cumberland MD - Don't tell me town ain't got no heart..

First of all, live a comfortable, humble and fulfilled life where ever you are. I hope everyone agrees that positive thinking and placing emphasis on qualities is a better practice than emitting energy toward perceived negatives. e.g., Tell your child they are doing something really well instead of focusing on something they aren't..
After growing up in Cumberland and living in a few other cities around the country my opinion of HOME is much better than I expected. We moved back home in 2012 after being out on the range (South and West) for close to 20 years. No two cities are alike, so it's not worth comparing Cumberland to other places we lived. In my opinion the pros out-weigh the cons for this area and I'll state several reasons why. Cumberland and Allegany County have so much to offer if one chooses to see its assets!! This also applies to towns surrounding ALCO and as a whole we are actually a METRO.. Neah sayers? Wiki Cumberland and google metro. Considering that Cumberland is a metro can be confound when comparing to larger cities, but it is true. This is another hidden reason why I believe the area is highly under rated. There is enough culture and diversity to compete with other places but it seems to be hidden in plain sight. Once you get to know the area it is easy to see the unique and interesting qualities.
Moving home was actually calming in several ways. A decent house on the west side that needs some tlc for under 100K! My thought was..I'll pay it off as soon as possible! It's an easy way to avoid interest..aka the bankers cut. A renovated house in Cumberland worth 150K would be worth 350K+ in other cities. Btw--I'm currently in need of a vehicle with lower mileage. An affordable home with a relatively low mortgage payment will allow a vehicle update relatively easy. Note: The area offers a level of financial freedom that is more difficult to attain then other cities. Financial freedom is equal to less stress and anxiety in my world.
Home improvement contractors are reasonable and comparable to larger cities. Contractors have enough work that it can be tough to get on a schedule at times. Quotes always range from wowzer "that seems high" to hmm "that reasonable". Generally there are plenty of renovation experts in the city ready to work for 15-25 an hour. Last weekend we observed the neighborhood and almost every house in view has been recently updated in one way or another. The past 5 years have been active in terms of home maintenance. It shows there is a sense of pride and this is visible all over. Regular home maintenance is ongoing and it only takes a one project a year to make significant improvements. Keep up the good work Cumberland..it's obvious that people care about their properties. There is deferred maintenance and blight in Cumberland. This is mainly near Interstate 68 or desirable home locations. A few long time rental streets have even seen improvement in recent years. In my opinion, focusing on the enforcement of City housing codes would help and more creative tax breaks could be designed for improvements. With 10K homes in Cumberland, it would not take much to swing this city into an hip spot.
The entire area is Walking/Biking friendly. That is without riding on the C&O Canal or Great Allegheny Passage trails. All of Cumberland's neighborhoods are connected with streets and sidewalks. I've never felt unsafe anywhere at anytime. We commonly walked and bike from our door step to downtown and places such as the Constitution Park or Riverside Park with no concerns. We have walked and biked most streets never having a single problem. I lived in South Cumberland for several years and visit family and friends regularly. The unspoken rule is don't bother people and they want bother you. Being friendly or stick to yourself will be reciprocated. Very simple. If you hear anyone say this area is unsafe, I would sincerely disagree. Crime is petty and low tolerance policing is a common theme for folks in poverty.
So about work..jobs... WORK FROM HOME is growing and Internet speeds in Cumberland are comparable to most cities. High speed Internet is available through ABB. Otherwise, jobs are here!!! There is a need for experienced higher educated individuals. Basically if you want to work there is work here. In fact, there are a lack of workers in a few career paths. Lets take tech for example. IBM has been growing (400+ employees) and continuously hiring out of town people because the qualified pool of technical staff in the area already have stable careers. There are high, mid and minimum wage jobs. Northrop Grumman is a huge company with high paying jobs and there are many small government jobs at ABL-Rocket Center. UPMC hospital has a number of medical field jobs. Higher education is abundant with several colleges to note. Rocky Gap Resort and Casino employs several hundred. Also there are factories such as American Woodmark, Hunter Douglas and Superfos. That's just naming a few.
Over the years I have heard there are no high paying jobs in the area. I highly disagree and rationalize this statement with context. These statements typically come from people seeking 60k+ jobs with no college degree and organized skill-set. My response to these types of comments: "Allegany College of MD has an excellent Continuing Education program full of night and online classes. Additionally, financial assistance is available if needed". Or: "There is a shortage of small restaurants serving healthy food at a reasonable cost:)".
Moving forward, the Appalachian mountains are lush and beautiful with comfortable fall, spring and summer temperatures. The variety of hard wood trees is staggering. Wild berries and mushroom galore throughout the mountains. Cumberland has several surrounding State Parks and natural areas. Rocky Gap -Green Ridge State Park - Buchanon - New Germany ..and a few others. The parks and trails are typically empty or maybe a few hikers. A vast majority of the time the forest is all yours without every seeing another person.
We are not game hunters (deer,turkeys,etc.) but hunting is prevalent during winter months. Hunting seasons are posted online and DNR regulates policy on public lands. If you meet a hunter and be very very friendly there is a chance they will share a pack of venison steak with you. It is delicious. I've never seen anyone hunting off season on public land in several hundred hiking expeditions. Public land is shared with unconditional respect.
Fishing opportunities are abundant. The lakes, creeks and rivers are full of fish. Lake Habeeb has great fishing. Wills Creek, Evitts Creek and the Potomac River all run through Cumberland. Kayaking, Canoeing or floating on a tube can all very relaxing. Being on the water seems to reset the soul. Floating the South Branch Potomac has been popular and this activity is becoming more common on the North Branch of the Potomac. Delfest Bluegrass festival seemed to spawn more floating action on the North Branch. There has been an expansion or update of river access locations along the North Branch Potomac in the past years.
There are a wide variety birds in the area because of the River and creeks. Eagles and hawks are around and if you keep an eye out you will surely spot one. In the winter, an assortment of ducks are on the Potomac River just below the Blue Bridge. We take binoculars to the overlook near Canal Place to view all of the types. That's a nice winter air-out activity.
If you are not aware, there is a biking trail that spans over 300 miles from Washington DC to Pittsburgh and guess what is in the middle?? CUMBERLAND! Cumberland is the western terminal of the C&O canal. Bike from you door step to DC or Pittsburg in 2-3 or4 days.. Also, Rocky Gap has a 5 mile mountain bike/hiking trail that loops Lake Habeeb.
A pro tip: After a long bike ride hit a Dive Bar with really cold beer. Cumberland has more than a few. The D.A.M tavern is one of my favorites. Everyone is friendly and beers are cheap. Most of the dive bars are enjoyable once you understand the culture. Dive bars in this area are another under-rated asset. Warning - the local police have given DUI's to bikers or DUP's to staggerers..
Have you ever heard of duck pin bowling? Look it up! Diamond Bowling Alley is a spot to visit at least once in a lifetime. Bowling clubs fill the lanes several nights a week. It's free to watch.
There are quite a few clubs to note. Anything from knitting, Bee keeping to Archaeological and Drone clubs. If you are looking to meet people with like interests there is a good chance it's here. If you don't find what interest you start a club and they will slowly come. Let me emphasize slowly because the area is moving at a slower pace than some cities/metros. This is a Good Thing..relax and enjoy life. There is always tomorrow.
Traveling around Cumberland is simple once you know the city. Within 10 minutes one could drive anywhere. Drive 2 hours to Washington DC or 2 Hours to Pittsburgh or take a shuttle. There are countless cities under 2 hours drive. The Amtrak passes through town twice a day. DC to Chicago anyone? The Amtrac will accept bikes. Leave your Cumberland door step, load your bike on the Amtrac and head to Chicago for a long weekend. DC is the other direction and the National mall is free!
This is just a few things the Cumberland METRO has to offer :). A positive attitude opens your eyes to endless possibilities. It is April 14th and we are being told that Morel mushrooms are popping up in the lower elevation areas.
I hope you enjoyed the information. Pass along good vibes.
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart - you just gotta poke around

My two days in Vegas!

I just got home in Atlanta from visiting over the weekend for two days. Thought I'd share what I did to help and get suggestions for when I come back! I got a jeep rental from fox so didn't use Uber and had free parking at hotel. Paid about $25 parking on strip twice. Boyfriend said we spent about $400 when we got here, only gambled about $75. Still had fun, but not enough watching my money burn. As you can see, I'm not a party goer, I'm a simple woman, but I think I did a lot and had fun. For reference, I'm a 23 yo woc.
Saturday night:
Checked in to Plaza hotel, 3/10 do not recommend. Lame hotel room and casino. Boyfriend picked it out, I vlame Groupon prices lol. 3* for friendly staff and Fremont being right across the street. Great experience and it's night and day there! Pretty funny seeing that change throughout the day.
Zumanity at NewYork NewYork. 7/10. We got last minute Tix the night before for $45/each. Totally worth it. The show is 18+ and is sexy. Still haven't been to a strip club, but this was a nice way to see artsy nudity. lol I wish we sat front row to participate in the show, Our balcony seats were awesome. We walked around NYNY and liked their casino floor much better than Plazas.
Herbs and Rye, 10/10. I thought the experience was great. We took advantage of their happy hour at midnight. YES to half off steaks, IDC if it's late!! I got the filet and my boyfriend got the ribeye. Perfectly cooked with delicious Mac and cheese and spinach. 23yo me couldn't say no to the Painkiller and loved it. It's not on the strip and is dark on the inside, but I thought it was an awesome restaurant. Sad we couldn't go back on Sunday 😢
Sunday
Hoover Dam, 9/10. I learned that I am nothing. The world is incredible. People are amazingly brilliant. I loved the drive into Boulder City. We actually stopped for breakfast on Lake Mead at Harbor House. They had the Titans game on so I was good, even if it was for other reasons.
Fremont Street, 10/10. Pretty interesting scene. It's like the alternative version of the strip. I loved it. Stopped by Pizza Rock, 8/10 for pizza. Got a few different slices Togo. I loved their Detroit pepperoni 😍
AGT show at Paris, 6/10. If you're ever interested in going to one of those shows in Vegas. Don't go. Save money for a better hotel on the strip 😉. Seriously, the acts were only good cause of seeing them live. Zumanity was so much more fun.
Las Vegas strip at Night 9/10! It's basically times square x10000. I loved it. I got to see the lights all lit up, the Belligio fountain show, and even some late night shopping. I loved walking thru the different casinos, it reminded me of the movies. Miss congeniality is probably my favorite 😂
Monday
Red Rock Canyon, 10/10. Surprised with a free day! Totally worth the early start time. I really enjoyed the drive into Red Rock. I will definitely be back to hike or do more off roading.
Rosati's pizza 9/10. I was craving pizza again and took a chance on good pizza before we headed back to ATL with no good pizza . I got their Chicago pizza and it was surprisingly good! It was on our way back from red rock. I'd give them a try if there's one around.
Las Vegas Sign 9/10. Final drive through the strip during the day. Still amazed at everything. Stopped by the sign on our way to return the car. Didn't plan that but it was worth it!

Album of the Year #21: Lucki - Watch My Back

Artist: Lucki
Album: Watch My Back
Listen:
Apple Music
Spotify
Youtube
Soundcloud
DatPiff
Album Background
Lucki (fka Lucki Eck$) is a Chicago rapper who’s been in the game since 2012, and since then has been constantly underrated. Despite co-signs from Chance the Rapper, A$AP Mob, Playboi Carti, Chief Keef (who even briefly inducted Lucki into Glo Gang), Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, and FKA twigs (that’s his voice on Preface off of LP1), he’s never quite risen to the level he could be at.
Perhaps it’s the fact that he mostly eschews from traditional pop song structures (of 18 songs on this project, only one is over 3 minutes, and the shortest is barely over a minute long) and hooks. Perhaps it’s the fact that he switched his sound drastically following his breakout mixtape, Alternative Trap. Perhaps it’s the drugs.
Whatever the reason, it doesn’t take away from the quality of this mixtape.
After months of delays, false starts, and loose tracks, Lucki finally released Watch My Back, his 7th mixtape on May 5th, 2017.
Review
Seeing the growth of Lucki from one mixtape to the next has really been something interesting. Whereas his first projects had that spacey, reverbed-out, cloud-rap style, some projects have featured some of his most downtrodden, depressing songs (Son of Sam), and others have been had the airy, energetic, fun style that Soundcloud is known for (Freewave II). On Watch My Back, we find a mixture between the latter two. It’s a sound that’s unique to Lucki, but still in line with his contemporaries.
The opening track, “Miss Me”, is a perfect introduction to Lucki’s personality. Over a bass-heavy, syrup slow Grimm Doza beat, Lucki brings us into his world, where despite the fact he still takes drugs like candy, he’s more aware of what’s going on. He realizes his flaws, but despite them, he refuses to change. It’s depressing, but it’s just the way he is. He’s the drug dealer and the junkie. He may love someone, but it doesn’t change the fact that he’ll push them away. Lucki’s world is one of dualities.
“Are U Wit Me”, produced by Gnealz, is one of the more on-trend songs, but still has a uniqueness to it. The production is laced with the same percussion, snare patterns, and bass that a song by Playboi Carti may have, along with a similar flow that ends just about every line with an “aye”, but similarities end there. There’s no real hook, and Lucki drifts between rapping and barely audible mumbling.
On “Komfortable”, Lucki once again speaks on the downsides of the drugs he’s taking. Molly, Xanax, and Percocets (despite what the refrain of “Are U Wit Me” makes it seem) are all some of Lucki’s vices. I think this song, while not one of my favourites, shows that Lucki is influential in the “Soundcloud Rap” scene. On this song, Lucki says:
I think them xans tryna take me
And while this may be a stretch, it was the first thing I thought of when I heard the hook of Lil Xan’s “Betrayed” a few months later.
Another great example of this comes from “Poker Face”, where Lucki calls himself a “Wockstar”, which is something people from Playboi Carti to Lil Wop to Slim Jesus have all called themselves following Lucki. This song is also worth mentioning for the amazing Plu2o Nash and Adio beat. It’s super simple, but the instruments in the background give the song an almost psychedelic feeling.
“BPrint” is one of the strongest lyrical moments of the tape. Lucki isn’t fitting in tons of multi-syllabic rhymes, but the bars are clever, and they give us an honest look into the artist’s head.
Following that, we have “Leave With You”, produced by Plu2o and cloud rap pioneer Clams Casino. The production is a perfect mix of both producers’ styles, and Lucki came in with a more aggressive flow to suit it. This energy carries along onto “Fuck Everybody”, which is another one of my favourites. The flow, production, and bars all combine into something that’s really great. Again, there’s not really a hook, but it doesn’t feel missed.
“No Wok” is also worth a song worth mentioning. Despite being barely over a minute long, it’s the most popular song on Watch My Back. The beat is really good, Lucki comes in spitting for almost the whole song, and “No Wok drive me brazy” is really catchy.
“New to Me” is one of the weaker lyrical moments on the tape, but the song is still super fun to listen to, mostly thanks to the beat. “Pull Up With Ah Stick” beatmaker Lil Voe is to be thanked for this instrumental, which combines saxophones and jazzy pianos with the plug beat drums.
The final song, the fittingly titled “Over”, is the last standout from the album. Much of the sentiments from the opening track. Despite the journey that Lucki guided the listener on throughout the album, he’s still in the same place. He’s still the same Lucki, and it’s not the best he could be, but at least it’s him.
Lucki is a master of creating music for depressing times, and while sometimes his lyrics may seem bleak, there are also moments where he looks at the bright side, it just may not be what he wants to do at the moment.
At first, I had my issues with this project, and there’s still a lot you could criticize. The first half seems a little stronger than the second, at least to me. The mixing is inconsistent, songs occasionally don’t feel as fleshed out as they could be, and some more hooks would be a great addition.
But for a lot of the songs, there are still parts that you find yourself repeating. It helps that the beats are on point throughout the whole tape. Lucki also proves that while his lyrics aren’t as good as they were on Alternative Trap, where it’s obvious that he put more time into crafting them, there’s still a lot of cleverness in what he’s saying.
If there’s one thing we can all hope for, it’s that Better Days are coming soon.
Favourite Lyrics by SoTheFliesDontCome
I used to treat her shitty with no pity, but she far older now
Told me, “With me, boy, be with me”, guess she know her worth by now
When it's dark, no matter who there, you couldn't see a soul by now
I’m a dog, I’m this and that, but it’s me, hoe
- “Miss Me”
I don’t politic with children
I chewed a million milligrams
Why he popped the seal then?
Can’t buy it, it may not be him
Who gon' get my deal then?
Since they all scared of drugs and kids
Nigga, where's the fun in this?
I don't got no life to risk
Deadboy status, I'm just here
So they can tape this shit
- “BPrint”
Hollywood Hills with a Glock in the rental
Live by what I said, if I caused it, I meant to
She do what I said, it could all be so simple
Who you came with, I’ma rob you and him too
Easy money, never been a fraud 'til I went though
Tried to do this sober, but the seal popping tempt you
- “Fuck Everybody”
Ecstasy in stars, tell her book me if she miss me
You not worth a bar, all that sneakin' shit can miss me
Molly crystal ball, tell me all about my good dream
Diva snort it all, all that council shit for rookie
I'll be back tomorrow, losing faith up in my city
- “Thank God”
I like tints, I don't know who wanna hurt me, darling, aye
That's my kin, for the right price he'll hurt me prolly, aye
I ain't dead, but my picture on the shirt, he salty, aye
I miss Tech, my plug got me sipping dirty Quali, aye
- “Over”
Discussion Questions
  1. Is it fair to lump Lucki in with artists such as Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi who use a similar “aye” flow just because of it?
  2. For those of you who’ve listened to Lucki’s earlier work, how much did you enjoy this album compared to his earlier work?
  3. A lot of songs on Watch My Back lack hooks. Was this a bad decision? Does it limit Lucki’s ability to “blow up”?

Bachelor Party in Lake Tahoe, near Heavenly, in July?

Considering having a bachelor party in Tahoe in July but I had a couple questions before making a decision. We're from Chicago and none of us have been to Lake Tahoe before. We'd like to stay near Heavenly because the casinos are nearby.
Appreciate any help & insights!

To My Sister on Her Wedding Day

I had booked the cheapest flight on the cheapest airline I could find and I was already paying the consequences. Delays and transfers ate into whatever meager budget I had left, but the final nail in the coffin was the mass overbooking of my last connecting flight. Since my ticket was the lowest of low priority seating from a deep discount booking app, I was bumped. I would have to wait hours, if not another full day, to get a flight.
You were getting married back east in Massachusetts, I was stuck at O’Hare International Airport, and since I had flown in from Las Vegas, I was low on funds and luck. I’d meant for it to be a surprise. I was invited, but nobody expected me to come except you. Even when I lied and told you I couldn’t make it, you saw right through me.
You were the one that always saw something good in me. You were the only family back home that still kept in touch. Professional gambler really wasn’t the type of thing a parent would want to see their son go into, even when it paid the bills. Or at least, it did when it used to.
I thought I could use my talents to give you a nice little wedding present, and show my kid sis my worth as a big brother. It made me forget my own system. If you want money, you’ll never win it. I was playing with my heart instead of my head and almost lost it all. I had enough sense to leave while I still had my phone, a cheap suit, and a pocket full of maxed out credit cards, but that was it. There was nothing left for a train ticket, let alone a rental car.
Late afternoon in that airport was still a zoo, and the people working at the airline were less than sympathetic. They quickly kicked me out of the departure lounge and into the wild. I pulled out my phone and wandered around until I could find a signal. I sat back on a plastic bench, picked up a quarter on the ground, and rolled it through my fingers.
I needed to think with my head. I was close to a casino, but I didn’t have the focus, buy-in, or clout for any real local action. I wasn’t above begging, but the people around me didn’t strike me as the charitable sort. I’d been in cold spots before, and bounced back from worse. I just needed to get the ball rolling again. I should’ve learned my lesson with technology, but instead I flipped through the gig app on my phone to see if I could find any local day jobs to help me on my way.
Nothing struck me as particularly useful for my current situation. Dog walking, delivering food, holding signs, artistic modeling, and other menial work wouldn’t get me the money I needed to get out of town in time. I was starting to lose hope when I saw a posting for a delivery.
They were looking for a discreet individual to drive a delivery truck from Chicago to some town a few hundred miles north of New York City. Payment was contingent on reaching the destination before sundown the next day. Proof of valid driver’s license required. No highways. No tolls. No questions.
I checked the directions on Google Maps. It would be about twenty hours and in spitting distance of the wedding. There were even a couple casinos I could hit up if I had the time. I knew I might have the money by then.
It was sketchy. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t have been the sketchiest thing I’d ever done, so I figured why not try my luck. I put in what I thought was an absurdly high bid, and kept scrolling. More food delivery and thinly veiled escort offers populated my feed. I kept swiping until my phone chimed. My bid was accepted and less than a minute later, the call came in.
“Hello,” I said.
“Is this Jason?” a light Eastern European voice asked.
“Yeah, that’s me.” I tried to sound more confident than I was. “This about the gig?”
“Gig?” He sounded confused.
“The job. The delivery?”
“Yes,” he said. There was a glimmer of recognition. “Yes, the cargo. You can drive a van, yes?”
“Yeah.”
“That’s good, bro.” He was getting more excited. “Do you need me to come and get you?”
I did the mental math. Cab ride or strange pick up? I could only afford one. “O’Hare International. I’ll meet you at the curb. What should I look for?”
“Black car. Sweet ride. You’ll know,” he said. “See you soon, Jason.”
The phone went silent.
I walked to the curb and watched the cars come and go. A black Mercedes pulled up to me. The car shook with the bass, and the passenger window slid down. A fragrant smoke poured out, and once it cleared, I saw a kid in a sweatshirt and track pants. He looked at his phone and he looked at me.
“Jason?” a familiar voice asked.
“Yeah.”
“Mani,” he said. He leaned over awkwardly and opened the door. “Get in. I’ll take you to the place.”
He took one last long drag from his cigarillo before he put it out and turned down the music. I closed the door behind me and buckled up. The car peeled out and he took me to who knows where.
Mani was a lot more talkative than I expected. He talked about everything except the job. He rambled about where to get what he thought was the best food, women, and drugs. He asked if I was cool to party, and why I was dressed like I was going to a funeral. He was excited and despite the accent, very American. It was disarming and dull. I was zoning out before he got more serious.
“So, my dad is like, ‘No, Mani, you can’t do it. We can find someone else to do it.’” He alternated between his own voice and a mocking sing-song. “And I was like, ‘No, Dad, I can do it,’ and he was like, ‘No, Mani, you have no head for business.’ And I was like, ‘I’m gonna outsource this shit. Technology, bro!’” He hit the steering wheel. “You ever do this type of shit before, bro?”
“Drive a van? Sure, why not.”
“Seriously, bro,” he said. “Don’t fuck me on this. Can you do this?”
“Yeah,” I said. “I can do the job.”
“Shit, bro. I wouldn’t. I mean, I totally could, but twenty fucking hours? Respect.”
“What am I hauling—”
He cut me off with a imitated buzzer noise. “No questions,” he chuckled to himself. “You are hauling whatever the fuck we need you to haul.”
After twenty or so minutes of one-sided conversation, we pulled into a small industrial park, drove behind a chain link fence, and passed an empty security booth. White vans and light trucks lined the back of a long white building. A group of men were chatting and smoking cigars by one of the few open bay doors. One man motioned to the car and an older man wearing a brown windbreaker and jeans in the center of the group turned to look.
The car rolled to a stop and Mani turned off the engine. I unbuckled my seatbelt and reached for the door.
“Stay in the car, bro,” Mani said. “I got this.”
I leaned back as Mani got out and walked up confidently to the older man. I could only hear murmurs through the glass, but thankfully Mani talked a lot with his arms and hands. The older man nodded and thought about whatever he heard for a moment. Mani’s energy went down and it looked like he was begging. The man tossed his cigar onto the ground, and backhanded Mani hard. He fell to the ground and his leg slipped when he tried to get back up.
The older man waved two fingers towards me and two men from the group followed him to my side of the car. He lifted up his windbreaker and pulled a gun from his belt. My eyes went wide and my body froze.
The door opened.
The older man was strong. He grabbed me by the collar with his free hand and ripped me out of my seat. I fell onto my back and he kicked me in the stomach.
“Pick him up,” he shouted. His voice was deep and his accent was thick.
The two men that followed him each picked an arm and hoisted me up to eye level with their boss.
“Who the fuck are you?” the man said as he waved the gun around me.
“Jason,” I said. I looked him in the eyes with cold focus, but in my mind behind that steel gaze, I was quivering and on the verge of pissing my pants. I was desperately trying not to show my hand. I had to bluff. I needed to bluff.
He pressed the gun into my forehead. “And who the fuck is Jason?”
I gritted my teeth. I felt a squirt go, and thanked God for dark pants. “Just a guy looking for some extra cash,” I said calmly.
The man removed the gun from my forehead and looked at me with curiosity. He hooked me in the ribs and I coughed. The pain radiated outward and the shock momentarily shook me out of my fear.
“Do you want to die, Jason?” He hit the same spot again and it knocked the wind out of me. My side burned.
“No,” I sputtered before catching my breath. “Not if I can help it.”
He came closer and looked me in the eyes. I tried not to blink. My life depended on it. He turned and lowered the gun. I quickly blinked to wet my dried corneas, and resumed my poker face.
“Maybe my pussy of a son was on to something. We do need a delivery, and I cannot use my own men for this.” He laid the gun to the side of his head and he tapped his fingers.
I stayed silent. The men holding me said nothing, and Mani and the remaining workers looked on in interest.
“Yes, this will work,” he finally said, still waving the gun. “Do you know who I am?”
“No,” I said.
“Good,” he said. He holstered his gun back behind his belt, waved two fingers to the ground, and the men dropped me. “What did my pussy of a son tell you?”
“Nothing other than the job and the rough location.”
He started walking and I scrambled to my feet to follow. He pulled another cigar from his coat with one hand, bit the top off with two teeth, spat, and lit the end of it with a lighter in his other hand.
“Tell me,” he said again.
“I need to drive a van somewhere in New York. No highways. No tolls. No questions.”
He pulled out a piece of paper and handed it to me. The note had a more specific hand-written address. Smoke rolled out of his mouth. “This is all you will know. Now, get into the fucking van, Jason.”
I walked faster towards the building and some of the underlings gave me a helpful nod to the vehicle I was supposed to drive. It was bigger than what I thought was a van, like something you would rent to move out of a house. It stunk of diesel, but I didn’t dare ask if something was lost in translation. The men stood back and I waited by the driver’s side door.
He walked slowly back, savoring his cigar. He made a ‘come here’ motion with his hand, and someone handed him a set of keys.
“If you fuck me, I will fuck you,” he said matter-of-factly. “You understand this, yes?”
I nodded. Mani was standing in the background looking at his shoes.
“Good.” He handed me the keys. “Drive safe, Jason. We’ll know if you don’t get there.”
I didn’t know what else to say, so I got in, looked ahead, turned on the ignition, and drove out of the industrial park and into the night.
Something chimed. “Continue straight to stay on US-30 East,” a soft female voice said. I looked around and the screen on my phone glowed. It was background noise, and I was on autopilot. “Continue straight to stay on US-30 East,” the voice said again.
I saw the road signs and I was already crossing into Indiana. I looked down and my knuckles were white as they gripped the steering wheel. I knew this might’ve been careless, but I didn’t expect it to be this reckless. I loosened my grip and tried to calm down. I kept telling myself that this was worth it. This was important to me. You are important to me.
I glanced around the cabin. It was clean and empty without a trace of personality. There was no cash, no map, and no trash. I looked back to my phone and the map app said to keep driving. There was a lot of stopping and starting at first, past chain restaurants and the eventual suburbs that followed it, but once I hit farmland, it was a much smoother drive.
It was after ten or maybe after eleven. The van’s radio and my phone couldn’t agree. I was normally a night owl, but I was so tired. Between the flight, the threat on my life, and the focus on getting as far from Chicago as fast as I could, I was exhausted.
You should pull over and rest your eyes,” a female voice whispered.
It startled me, and I snapped back to attention. The screen lit the cabin. I looked at my phone and I waited for it to repeat.
Turn left onto Indiana-205 North,” the voice said. It must have been my imagination.
I looked back at the road and almost missed my turn. I saw a car behind me riding my bumper as I overcorrected the wheel. A car behind them sped past both of us and down the road. I needed to get it together if I was going to make it through the night. I powered on the AC and directed it towards my face. It woke me up and I kept driving.
The voice on the app told me which turns to make and how much longer I had. It was well into the wee hours of the morning and the temperature finally dropped enough that I had to turn on the defroster.
I wasn’t sure if I was making good time. It was hard to tell. Taking the side roads was much slower and more prone to stoppage even at the hour I was driving. The schedule was getting tight. I didn’t take into account how long the drop off would take or how long it would take to cross over from New York to Western Mass. I thought that even if I missed the service, I could still probably make it to the reception.
Turn right onto Ohio-199 South.”
Navigating that van was like driving a boat. I turned the wheel slowly but the voice still repeated, “Turn right onto Ohio-199 South.”
“Yeah, I know,” I said in frustration. The cabin was warming up and it felt like a soft blanket.
You’ll never make it. You should just pull over.” I looked at my phone and the screen was black. The voice was the same, but less mechanical and much softer. I looked around the cabin. “You should just stop, Jason.
“Hello?” I said. The outside world looked so much darker. I leaned to look for a speaker other than the radio.
Pull over, Jason.” The voice was calm and seductive. “It’s what’s best.
My hands were off center and I was rapidly drifting to the shoulder. The gravel kicked up and ricocheted like buckshot in the tire well. I jerked the steering wheel and moved the van back on the road. The car behind me braked hard and almost hit me.
I scolded myself. I could not afford to fall asleep at the wheel. My heart was racing. I rolled down the windows and it was loud and cold. It kept me focused enough to make it to the next gas station.
The lights were bright and the parking lot was mostly empty. I rifled through my pockets and found a little more than a dollar in loose change. It might’ve been enough to buy a bad energy drink or at least worse coffee. I got out of the van, double-checked to make sure everything was locked, and went inside. I bought the remnants of yesterday’s coffee and dumped in a handful of sugar packets. I slugged back the lukewarm beverage, threw out the cup, and walked past a guy going inside on my way back to the van.
I heard a sound coming from the windowless storage compartment, faint and without rhythm. I started toward the back, but turned around before I could even look at the rear door. A black Mercedes with Illinois plates was parked several yards away from me. A man in track pants and a sweatshirt was filling up the car. Another man in jeans came out of the store with some drinks and a bag of jerky. I got into the van and started it up. It jerked to life and I sped down the road. I looked into my side mirror and after a few minutes I could see the Mercedes following me.
They kept their distance, but now I knew they were there. I didn’t understand why they were willing to follow me, but unwilling to drive their own delivery. Maybe it was for plausible deniability, get some schmuck to take the fall if their van got pulled over, or maybe what I was carrying was more dangerous than I thought.
Turn left onto US-20 East.
I wanted to throw my phone across the cabin, but if I did, what would the men following me do to me if I went off course?
Turn left onto US-20 East.” The screen went black as I turned. “They’ll kill you anyway. You’ll never make it.
I was more awake now. I wasn’t hallucinating. I wasn’t dreaming. I wasn’t trying to convince myself everything was okay anymore. I felt shivers crawl up the back of my neck and the hair on my head scrunched together.
You should just pull over, Jason.
“Stop it,” I said out loud. “Whatever you are, stop it!”
The cabin went silent for several minutes. I took a long blink and when I opened my eyes, I could see someone sitting next to me out of the corner of my eye. No one was really there, I knew that in my bones, but God help me, it felt like something was there.
I turned to look over at a women in a white dress. The face was scrambling together in peach-colored blurs until it looked like a replica of you. She looked just like you. Lace grew on the dress and a veil spread from her blonde hair. I hadn’t seen you yet, but it was exactly as I imagined.
“Hey Jay, I can’t wait to see you.” She smiled and looked at her engagement ring. “I knew my big bro wouldn’t let me down.”
“What the fuck is this?” I said.
“Thanks for taking me to my big day. The church is right up here.” She pointed out the window. It was still night but somehow we were driving towards the sunlit Catholic church from our hometown. A shimmering group of people were gathered around. If I thought about who would be there, their face suddenly appeared in the crowd. My hands started drifting again, but I held firm and stayed on the road.
“You’re not my Jean.” I focused hard on the last word.
“It’s me, Jay. Jeanie. Who else would it be?”
“Alex,” I said. “My sister’s name is Alex.”
The patch of sun washed away into the night, and not-you frowned. Her image flickered for a moment before flashing back into existence. I needed to make it to your wedding. That was the only thing that mattered to me. Her image flashed again and came back even more confused.
“You are a surprisingly strong willed young man,” she said. “Is this all you really want?”
“Yeah,” I said back. “She’s the only thing left that matters to me.”
“I understand,” she sighed. “I had a family once too, so I am sorry for what has to happen next.”
I turned to look and she was gone. I looked back over the steering wheel and someone was standing in the middle of the road. I slammed on the brakes before I could even think about it. The body disappeared like mist as it hit the engine compartment and rolled off the cabin into the air. The van stopped and less than a second later, I felt everything lurch forward again as a car slammed into me.
I heard the metal doors burst open and something landed on their car. I heard the shattering of glass and the sounds of screams and gunfire. I looked out at my side mirror. A petite woman with dark curly hair, metal cuffs, and a hospital gown was covered in blood. Her eyes were jet black and her panting mouth was lined with canines. Our eyes met in the reflection, and she smiled a toothy grin before running off into the woods.
I put my foot down to the mat and gunned it. The smashed Mercedes behind me disappeared from view, and I kept driving until I hit the next gas station. Most of what wasn’t bolted down fell onto the road as I fled, so the storage compartment was mostly empty. The gas station attendant was kind enough to give me an old bungee cord to tie together the doors. I didn’t know what else to do, so I just kept driving. Once I hit Pennsylvania, I snapped my phone in half and just followed the signs until I got to more familiar territory.
I ditched the van on the outskirts of town and since people’s hearts really open up when you say you’re trying to make it your sister’s wedding, I was able to hitchhike the rest of the way and slip into the service before it ended.
It was all worth it, though, to see you up there. And when you saw me and your face lit up, my heart melted.
You hugged me long and hard and we both held up the receiving line. You told me you were worried when you didn’t hear anything and I just had to tell you how I made it. I wanted to tell you then, but numerous shoulder jabs from disapproving aunts and uncles pushed me out the door.
So here I am, scrambling to get this written down after the reception in the hotel’s business center. It’s the only gift I have for you right now, and I don’t know if or when you’ll read this, or if you’d ever believe it, but I do hope you know this:
Even if you don’t see me for a while, I’ll come running for you anytime. I’d do anything for you, kid. Enjoy your special day.
Love, your big brother, Jason.
