The Adventures of an American Vagabond
(& stories from ridiculously long walks)
Ryan,From your new friend Scott in R I,Ihope you are well and we at Generations wish you many happy miles,be safe. I will keep up with your blog keep me posted on your travels.I hope one day our paths will cross again.GOOD LUCK enjoy life.
If it wasn't for the message above from Scottin RI, just based on that sign, I would think RI doesn't want you there. Having no "Welcome To..." sign is not acceptable. I don't care how small the road is. A "You are entering..." sign doesn't cut it. Might as well say "Fuck off! -Rhode Island".
Thanks Scott. And thanks for the food and everything. I successfully returned that stuff I found to its owner. I was rewarded, too. Rewarded by him with a twenty, then rewarded handsomely in another way by just knowing I did the right thing; something most people wouldn't have done. And I'm not going to blog or tweet about it, either.ER, I know you're just being goofy, but RI has been very cool to me. There actually was another sign. Actually it was a stone that said MA on one side and RI on the other. I took a pic of it, as well, but I'm still not sure if the important part is in the pic.
Does anyone know what happened to Ryan? He was tweeting multiple times every day, and updating this blog regularly, but he just disappeared over three weeks ago without a word. I'm hoping he lost his phone, or gave up on the walk, but I fear it's something worse. Very worried.
On second look, it seems it was only 9 days ago that he disappeared. Seems like way more than that to me for some reason. In any case, still worrying.
I read on his facebook that he got arrested in Rhode Island for not showing a cop his I.D. or something like that. I'm hoping all turns out well, and I'm sure he'll post something eventually.
So apparently Ryan was arrested in Westerly, RI on 9/29/11 for "OBSTRUCTING POLICE OFFICER". I'm guessing that means failure to show his identification to a cop. The same thing he was arrested for last year. Damn, that sucks. The link to the case is below. It shows the pre-trial date as October 14, which means he's rotting in a crappy RI jail until at least next Friday. I can't believe they would hold someone for over two weeks for something so minor!!!http://courtconnect.courts.ri.gov/pls/ri_adult/ck_public_qry_doct.cp_dktrpt_frames?case_id=41-2011-02831
Link got cut off. Add this to the end of the link above:02831
If that doesn't work, just go here and search by name:http://courtconnect.courts.ri.gov/pls/ri_adult/ck_public_qry_cpty.cp_personcase_setup_idx
