The Last Post

A few final words and pictures

Bouldering in the Buttermilks...

Looking back over the last 18 days, here are a few things that we learned.

1.  Satelite radio can be a good thing in the right hands.  18 days of the "boneyard" is a bit too much.  New rule - Dan is not allowed to have the controls of the radio.

2.  115 degrees is hot - dry heat or not!

3.  Kids are much more adaptable than we generally give them credit for, we are very proud of Victoria and Tommy.  New adventures now await them and us.

4.  Yes, you can pack all your camping gear, clothes, and electronic gear in four back packs and four duffel bags.  The only thing (toiletries aside) we bought on the road was a cooler that we donated at the end of the trip.

5.  Going off the grid every once in a while is a great thing.  Going off the grid can also be very annoying especially when you want to check on a reservation or the weather.

7.  Four days without showers creates some very dirty people, washcloth bathes or not.  Baby wipes do help, but you are still are very, very dirty.

8.  Coffee early in the morning at the campsite is a wonderful thing.

9.  California is an amazing place to visit! 

10.  And last but not least, we have the best family and friends.  Thank you all that helped us on the road, and at home.  Without you we couldn't have had this great trip.

So until the next adventure....
