  •  Patience, my son. (21+ / 0-)

    I'm leaving in a few days. Down to the final prep's. Just finishing up the weed whacking, packing up stuff into the camper, getting dog baths, shopping...final finals.

    A quick preview: Headed outta CO into Utah(yes, I already have booze-they are totally bullshitty about booze in Utah) and driving right past Canyons of the Ancients, Canyonlands, and Arches Nat Parks--been there, done that enough to bypass them, although they are all very worthy of a visit. Gorgeous places, actually. Through Moab, a great little town, and again-worth a visit, except it is already too damn hot there among all the red rock reflecting heat all day. First night will be when I get to I-70. Then it's on to Twin Falls. Then either Burns, OR or Bend, OR. I plan on spending some time in Bend(a week?), not sure if I can get from Twin Falls to Bend in one day, so, ...maybe Burns for a night.

    Triple bonus!! Potential meet-up with a beloved kossack before I get to Bend. I'm stoked! I said a nice thing in a diary(I know!? me?) and was contacted by them. More details after we meet-IF we meet.
    And I'm just gonna put this out there: I would also love to meet mcmom. Wouldn't you? Yes, of course you would. But I don't know her or Joan at all, so...  During this adventure, I've got to be 'forward' in making my wants known, right? I was married long enough to know: You don't ask, you don't get. Okay, that's out there in the universe. We'll see.

    My Fletch-he's a champ, sitting quietly & watching me while tied to a picnic table while I set up the camper at a local State Park on a trial run. Lil Chrissy was being killed by being tied up. Just dying. Crying, pulling, trying to get free. It was sad/funny. She has gotten better but-she is a lil ranch dog at heart, and curtailing her running freedom is an injustice. This will take time & work. She is a good dog, & would never run off--but she would like to see whatever is 'over there'...which can't happen in a public campground. Oh, and one other thing. Lil Chris? Not so little. She's 40some pounds, and almost as tall as Fletcher(he's 60some lbs). She isn't "lil" Chris because she's tiny, she's lil Chrissy because she's our babygirl. So if you should meet her, don't be too shocked that she's actually big lil Chris.

    One last thing--if you'd like to meet-up this summer, kosmail me. And if we do meet, it'll be up to you if I write about it/you, and/or post pics. I'll be posting pics of scenery along the way, but it is up to you if your pic gets on to Dkos. Fair?

    The better I know people, the more I like my dog.
