i have to say i will miss him most as he was probably my favorite character.

also i just learned about why he was writing a book about traveling across America on his motorcycle, and why it amused Entrangian... i was at a local thrift store when i found a John Steinbeck novel called Travels with Charley: it is about Steinbeck traveling through America with his dog and reconnecting with what he loved about the country. i only caught this reference after having completed Desperation, but i bought the Steinbeck book as a result. :p

did anyone else know this reference prior to reading Desperation?
