behind … but none are plausible enough to write here. Only excuses.
We have been on the road every day … some days have been good, some bad, and some just so-so.
All of them seeming to work together against my body, my mind and my spirit. Sigh.
We did get a 34 hour reset this last week in Winslow, AZ – but as tired as I was, I didn’t even open my computer! Just vegged out … sigh.
Anyway –this trip has taken us from Sulphur Springs, TX to Clovis/Portales, NM to Tulare, CA to Hull, IA and now to Ft. Morgan, CO ... once loaded here we will be headed for Winnsboro, TX.
Traveling thru the beautiful state of Arizona …
Not so hard to worship the Lord our God …. To see His handiwork all about us … the mountains, the valleys, the trees, the deserts, a land of contrasts … Easter morning and to see the sun come up and lightly kiss the snow-capped mountain peaks … How Great Thou Art!!! How great is our God!
Can’t say the same about California. I’m sorry. I know that
there are a lot of beautiful places in California – I’ve done research! LOL … but where we have been? Not much more than the desert. And although the desert has its own beauty and mystic charm … you get tired of it after so long! (Or at least, Rick and I did! I’m sorry.)
For Rick - the hardest part of going to California is the 55 mph speed limit for trucks vs. the 70 mph speed limit for cars. LOL He is NOT patient at those times!!! So, I get to "hear" a LOT about it!!!
Went thru the corner of Nevada – and downtown Las Vegas. No, we did not “drop a quarter” – just drove thru and got out of that crazy traffic!
Drove across Utah – I loved the mountains, the valleys, the
trees, the rivers … Rick did too, and would have liked it better if it hadn’t slowed him down so much! He can usually average around 600-700 miles in a 10 hour day … but that day – it was about 500 miles in 13 hours! Average speed was around 40 mph … he was NOT a very happy trucker! LOL
Across Wyoming … been across there so many times the last few years! Still enjoyed the tunnel at Green River, and the mountain between Laramie and Cheyenne J. I am a SUCKER for tunnels! LOL
Nebraska … Iowa … on to Colorado. The prairie lands of America. Just to think about all the pioneer settlers saw and went thru to cross these open spaces!
Color me tired and sore!!! Goodness.
