I'm out

Wow. That's got to be some kind of record. But I'm done with the 100 mile diet and it's just barely past noon.

It's the caffeine that's going to do me under. I got a dreaded 3 AM call last night -- family member in the emergency room. That kept me up until about 6 AM, when I finally got to the hospital.

Afterwards, I made a good breakfast (emmer + honey + raw milk) and just had a great lunch (local beef + wheat berries + peppers/onions). But w/out the coffee I'm a zombie. Liza just called me at work and WOKE ME UP! Yow.

I'm off to Bay Market for some caffeine.

Looks like we're in for a rough week and I'm going to be needing as much caffeine and easy carbs as I can get my hands on.

Good luck to the rest of you.

This challenge is tough enough without family emergencies. All the best.

John, sorry to hear about this but you probably accomplished more than you think just in the act of figuring out how one can even begin to eat locally - the salt thing alone is a very deep thought. Sending you all healing thoughts. Now let that coffee flow!

Hope all goes well, John. I was burying a salt lick in my backyard, so I could tell you we had a natural deposit of it. But coffee would have been more difficult.

Sorry to hear you're out, John. I hope everyone is okay.
