Since leaving Coloradofive months earlier, he hadn't voluntarily spent more than a few hours with anyone, the lone exception being an elderly dairy farmer just south ofLittle Rock, who let him sleep in an unused upstairs bedroom after a dinner in which the farmer talked as little as he did. He appreciated the fact that the man didn't feel the need to press him about why he'd just appeared the way he had. No questions, no curiosity, no open-ended hints. Just a casual acceptance that Thibault didn't feel like talking. In gratitude, Thibault spent a couple of days helping to repair the roof of the barn before finally returning to the road, backpack loaded, with Zeus trailing behind him.

自从离开科罗拉多州5个月,他并没有自愿的和任何人多花一个小时。只有一次就是南部小石城的老奶农在他们几乎沉默的一顿饭之后让他睡在楼上一个没人住的卧室。他很庆幸那个奶农并没有追问他为何以这种形象出现。没有疑问、没有好奇、没有毫无限制的暗示。而是对蒂博不爱说话的接纳。出于感激,蒂博在这里多花了几天为奶农修补了谷仓顶棚,然后便出发了,装好背包和宙斯离开了。

 With the exception of the ride from the girls, he'd walked the entire distance. After dropping the keys to his apartment at the manager's office in mid-March, he'd gone through eight pairs of shoes, pretty much survived on PowerBars and water during long, lonely stretches between towns, and once, in Tennessee, had eaten five tall stacks of pancakes after going nearly three days without food. Along with Zeus, he'd traveled through blizzards, hailstorms, and heat so intense that it made the skin on his arms blister; he'd seen a tornado on the horizon nearTulsa,Oklahoma, and had nearly been struck by lightning twice. He'd taken numerous detours, trying to stay off the main toads, further lengthening the journey, sometimes on a whim. Usually, he walked until he was tired, and toward the end of the day, he'd start searching for a spot to camp, anywhere he thought he and Zeus wouldn't be disturbed. In the mornings, they hit the road before dawn so no one would be the wiser. To this point, no one had bothered them.

 

除了和那些女孩一起走了一程之外,他走完了全程。三月中旬,在他把钥匙落在经理办公室里的公寓后,他穿坏了8双鞋,他依靠能量棒和水支撑着自己,他孤独的行走于小镇之间。有一次在田纳西州,在毫无食物下蒂博行走了三天后,他吃下了5高叠薄煎饼。他和宙斯一起顶着暴风雪、雹暴走着,天气太热以致他的手臂起了水泡。他看见过在塔尔萨、俄克拉荷马州附近处的地平线的龙卷风。而且有两次差点被雷击中他为了不走大路饶了很多道,也是为了延长旅途,有时候只是一时兴起的饶了道。通常,他走到自己累了,在一天将近结束之时,他便会找个地方支帐篷,他认为在任何地方他和宙斯都不会被打扰。早上的时候,他们在天未亮的时候便出发了,所以没有人会比他们更早,因此也不会有人打扰他们。(这句有些无力啊。。。)
