This is the passage from On The Road that inspired Day 61 in The Beat Handbook. It reminds me of driving home from a high school girlfriend's one night, way out in the Pennsylvania boondocks, and the fog was so thick I was leaning out of my car door trying to see any glimpse of the road! I was beat and didn't know it. Hey, I wasn't gonna let a little fog keep me from go go going! Just like Dean.
