Hitchhikers


We are in the deserts of Arizona, familiar territory, so we must be getting close to home. 

Here Sinbad is admiring the desert sunset. 

These fellows are in the foot-well right above Sinbad's head.  They have been there since Iowa? Kansas?  I don't remember when.  Quite a few miles at least.

But this is a new one I just noticed last night.  That is the vent for the hot water heater on the side.
Like Pete Kibble, there is a grasshopper hopping around on one leg somewhere in the mid-west.

Thank you everyone who's been following along on our journey.  But it is not over by any means.  I have lots of pictures to share and stories to tell for some time.

if you'd have made it to texas, i'd have been happy to load up a few million hoppers onto your vehicle. :)

Those hoppers look seriously freaky, laying like that. I usually see bugs squashed, not whole with their legs laying there like a human being. CREEPY!!!

Yikes! Seeing the death and destruction left in your wake--I don't know what to think. Glad you're almost home.

I am learning a lot, even if I am not posting a lot of comments! I look forward to the continuing saga...

It's been a fun trip and I didn't have to leave my office.

You need to find a good rest stop where the birds can come down and feed on those guys!

Sinibad is looking good in the sun. The grasshoppers... not so much!
