The Panhandle's Pull

One thing I've noticed as I end a close reading of the Walkin' Notes: the journal entries get longer and cover more than just one day--a week even.

It gives a visceral sense of the blur of time as the Chiles for Senate campaign peaked. Also, it shows the minute by minute description he dedicated to the towns in the Panhandle. A sense of priorities.

The descriptions of food in particular get sparse once he leaves the Panhandle.
