Jage, it was good meeting you. I appreciate you letting me stop by to play show and tell. Honestly, I was a little nervous. Last time I met someone off the internet I ended up getting married.
I'm sorry it wasn't longer, and that I didn't get to meet anyone else. We really were trying to grind through the miles. We were back in Seattle the following night. We've got a fair number of friends and family down your way. Add to that all the great stuff between Seattle and Denver and I know we'll be back. Hopefully soon.
Our trip itself was uneventful. We hit major snow our first night out, in the mountains in eastern Montana, and we got a parking ticket while sleeping at a Wal-mart in Pennsylvania. Other than that it was just a lot of driving with a little visiting thrown in here and there. 14 days, 19 states, 7,000 miles. It's fun to have done it. I'm not sure I'd recommend it as a way to see the country -- mind bogglingly beautiful as it is -- it was too much driving and not enough other stuff.
We did see elk, deer, antelope, pheasant, grouse, eagles and hawks. We even saw a beaver. I've never seen beaver road kill before. Odd.
