I learned that Alvin Straight actually died later during another lawnmower trip to the Dakotas, passing away in his trailer.
Sorry for the "sidebar" here.
Having spent a good many years growing up in the Storm Lake Iowa area, I am pretty familiar with Laurens, and remember when that story happened.
BTW, when did you play in Laurens, and if I may, what was the name of your band? Thanks.

Now onto Nomadland. It was slow moving but that wasnt a bother. I found it interesting and believable, however, I believe the life of the main character is a fairly small percentage of van dwellers.

It was interesting near the end the choice she made. That said a lot to me of why people live the van dwelling life.
