... The first was at a retail outlet mall just outside Salt Lake City. It was fairly new with really nice toilets, they were huge with an area separate from the cubicals with chairs and couches, although I can think of better places to sit and chat!! Neil managed to find and buy a couple of new hoodies for half of what it would cost for just one back home.

... in giant pickup trucks or foreign tourists in tiny sports cars. I went back to camp to find I got neighbors who have 4 little kids and one crying infant. Just more reasons to become wiser on camp spots. Side note: gnats are the most annoying animals on the planet. How can they bite with such tiny mouths? They don't seem to care that I have 100% deet burning through my ...
