“It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech. ” Mark Twain
Okay…so we haven’t exactly kept up with the promise to update the site regularly. My excuse is two-fold.
Number One – technical difficulties. In spite of the considerable effort and skills of our Trip Engineer , AKA Troy, we were not able to get internet access in certain remote spots. (Turns out tumbleweeds and snakes have little use for Wi-Fi).
Number Two – exhaustion and lack of time. Even when there was internet available, like at Goulding’s Campground in remote Monument Valley, UT, or believe it or not, amid the great Sequoias at the restaurant at Grant Grove Village, full days of hiking, desert travel and touring and mindless wandering whooped our butts and we grabbed sleep when we could get it.
So now, comfortably ensconced in the grown-up room of The Holiday inn Express, at Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, CA, with Troy sound asleep in the bed and the kids resting comfortably in the next room, the saga continues…
There will be more blog updates in the next couple of days, but if you’re antsy, you can view our photos on flickr in the meantime.
