Day 2

... the usual crazy traffic that starts just north of Ogden and then for the next 100 kms past Salt Lake City until you get south of Provo its 6 lane bumper to bumper. The only saving grace is the HOV lane which although busy, at least moves at a reasonable pace.

Got into Cedar City about 4:30, another long day.

Things I discovered today, the contour video ...

Majestic Towers, HooDoos and flat tires

... and three days of fellowship with good friends before pushing further eastward.

But before we leave... a plug for the HitchNPost RV campground and its owners, Randy and Jody. They run a fine campground (but what would you expect of refugees from the corporate ratrace -- and Minnesotta). We also owe thanks and kudos to the good folks at Royal Express (AutoCare) and at R&R welding. Each went 'the extra step' and help us get back on the road... safely.

It was very chilly and we had our summer jackets on so we changed to our winter ones and thank goodness we did as when we took the interstate 15 ...

The Wombats arrive in Parowan via Flagstaff.

... as I have yet to find out if I packed a fry pan (only joking) we have one but we have not cooked as yet (maybe next month).

Oh I forgot we CAMPED! for the first time and the Exped 7 downmats are fantastic and I can highly recommend them.
From Flagstaff we stayed at Tusayan 6 miles from the entrance to the Grand Canyon and we stayed at a campground and I saw my first groundhog. We tried to get into the Mather campground ...
