  • Day Twenty-Nine Recap

    “And you know, when the truth is told, that you can get what you want or you can just get old.” ~Billy Joel July 6—Happy birthday, Rob! We left Sage Creek Campground (aka Woodstock) and hit the road for Albert Lea, Minnesota. On the drive out of the park, we saw a TON of wild […]

  • Day Twenty-Eight Recap

    “I been a long time leavin’, but I’m going to be a long time gone.” ~Willie Nelson We left Sheridan (and Buffalo, boo-hoo) early on the morning of the 5th with our compass (okay, GPS) set toward Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Our last sight of Buffalo and the Bighorns was from a scenic […]

  • Day Twenty-Seven Recap

    “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” – Harry S. Truman Happy Fourth of July! We rose early and took a quick tour of the Sheridan coffee shops looking (in vain) for Internet service so I could post (and […]

  • Day Twenty-Six Recap

    A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. ~Chinese Proverb Aside from the massive blanket of pollen over everything we owned, we were sad to leave Prune Creek—especially knowing it would be our last wilderness camping spot on this trip. We’ve got two more days at […]

  • Day Twenty-Five Recap

    “If fishing is like religion, then fly-fishing is high church.” ~ Tom Brokaw Another day spent on the banks of the Tongue River (north Fork) in the Prune Creek Wilderness Campground. We woke to a forty-degree morning and the sound of brown trout calling Len’s name. There was heavy condensation inside the trailer on the […]

  • Day Twenty-Four Recap

    “You have brains in your head, and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.” ~Dr. Seuss For breakfast, I ate my leftovers from the Speakeasy and Len ate a banana and a lamb-jerky bar, part of a big box of retirement goodies from my sister (he loves them, Sarah). […]

  • Day Twenty-Three Recap

    “As long as you have certain desires about how it ought to be, you can’t see how it is.” ~Ram Dass We left the trailer at the campsite and headed out to Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site. The day was gorgeous and warm but not too warm and the drive only took about an hour. Medicine […]

  • Day Twenty-Two Recap

    “Very little on a fire rolls uphill.”  ~Larry Wright. I’ve been spending so much time on the recaps, I think that was part of my exhaustion, so I took 24 hours to NOT do anything on the Internet. Plus, Sprint is being mean to me so Internet has been a trial. Tonight I paid $10 […]

  • Day Twenty-One Recap

    “Monsters are real, and ghosts are real, too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” ~Stephen King We left the Worland RV Park, gassed up, got some foam strip from a local hardware store to beef up the foam on the inside rim of the tool box to keep road dust out, dropped some […]

  • Day Twenty Recap

    “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” ~Henry Ford We left the Worland RV Park (only for the day, trailer in-tow) to get back to the repair shop and let them fix a part of the wiring system that was isolated when the wires got ripped out. […]
