    Road Trip

    Heading back from Washington State and been on the road the last two days driving through Montana, Idaho, and Utah. What awesome roads if you get off the interstate! If I lived up here I would be on a road trip every weekend. Today, highway 6 from Provo Utah to just outside Arches National Park near Moab which I will be driving through early tomorrow morning. Can't believe I'm driving a pickup towing a Uhaul trailer with a load for someone else back to Florida. So far I have logged over 4400 miles and used over 400 gallons of gas averaging about 9 mpg. It's the load Im towing giving me this abysmal gas mileage.

    See you guys next week.

    I'm starting to feel bad now. I forgot to mention that half those boxes were filled with bricks just to disappoint would-be thieves.

    By the way, I forgot that I left some stuff in Seattle. If you're not too busy, think you could turn around?

    Yes wonder photos, I too await to see all when you return. By the way one of the many arches that have been photograph collapsed several years ago. Did you by any chance get to see what was left?

    Did not see any colapsed arches. All seem to be intact.

    Drove through Monumentb Valley today also. Took a picture in the middle of the road where Forrest Gump stopped jogging and went home. Also stopped in Four Corners and stood in four states at the same time.
