The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

We will be away for a week chasing wildflowers through central California then back up along the coast. I should be able to continue with the saga around the 17th or so. So do come back then and see what misadventures Sinbad and I had in Arches and Death Valley National Parks and all points in between.

Meanwhile, thank you all for coming along this far and for the comments you leave. We like you.
 Their Texas beer wasn't bad at all.
