It was a quiet night to sleep out on Arizona Street.  No interruptions at all.

John came out with Annie, his fine doggy and took her for a walk.  On his return, I took a few shots of them together.  It seems she is ill and doesn't have much time to spend with us.  She looks great and is lively, but her disease is progressive...  She's a great, kind and loving animal and will be missed by all.

I stopped at a Conoco station on the way out of town and put sixty gallons in Shorty.  He holds seventy-five and the station was a bit on the slanted side, so I could have added more, if not.  The last gas I got was in Wyoming.  Cheaper there by about twenty cents a gallon, but who's counting?
 
 I took my time driving home, so as not to miss anything on the way. The grass is green and the trees are in full-leaf stage.  There were very few red pines, indicating, perhaps that the end of the beetle purge may have arrived.

As I pulled into 429 South Sanders, I couldn't help but notice how green our lawn looked, and, tall.  I had hoped our neighbor had mowed it, but no, now I'm on the hook, so to speak.

I got the fridge and freezer unloaded as well as a few other things.  The house, unsurprisingly, is nice and clean.  That Lynnie is a wonder!

The trip was one of the best ever.  One of my most favorite places was Red Rock Canyon FS CG in Utah.  I hope to go back there with Lynnie, perhaps on our return next year.

I have to remind myself to live in the present and one day at a time.  I've enjoyed the travel and hope that I can continue and that Lynnie and I can go places for years to come.  But, who actually knows?  We'll keep on campin' through the summer and keep you informed as to what we discover and do.  Keep comin' back and we'll do our best to entertain, inform and hopefully educate a bit too.

We love you all and look forward to seeing you all "eyeball to eyeball" soon.  Peace...
