Yesterday we began loading Shorty. You cannot imagine how many different items are needed for a multi-month long journey. I got the new bike rack figured out, with the able assistance of the aforementioned Mike
Last night we had Joe, Mel and Bonnie Mc up for dinner, in addition to the dogs, Rogue and Cain. Lynn and I made a delicious beef stew. We made extra, so we'd have some "lefties" for the early stages of our trip. We played a bit of Yahtzee and enjoyed a most pleasant evening.
Today Lynn got the cupboards cleaned out and most of the groceries loaded. I must have done something, but now it's all a mystery to me. That's what happens when I get too involved: memory blackout. No negative repercussions were noted, so I think all is well.
We had intended to visit Kodakchrome Basin State Park in Utah on our trip south, but I found out this evening that it's closed until March first... We're disappointed, but will probably return to Snow Canyon State Park, where we stopped last year. It's in red rock country, so we'll enjoy the sites and lack of sounds there. There's another park in the area too, so we have back-up if we change our mind.
Tomorrow we'll complete the loading, check the tires and rest. Time passes quickly at this point in the plan. It's a challenge to live in the moment, but that's what works best for me anyway.
Keep in touch and we will do the same. I'll be here. Will you?
