READ MY LIPS.....I Will NOT Camp in Grizzly Country!
Early this summer - Sabrina is off to University of North Carolina School of the Arts for a month where she has been accepted into the Visual Arts Program. Quite an honor for a 15 year old. That gives Blaise and I a month with NO KIDS. WHAT?????? No kids???? Do corgis count as kids?? Well, not exactly, but family is staying at the house to watch the furry kids so Blaise and I can hit the open road in search of our next homestead which we plan on moving to when Sabrina is done with High School.
We are going fly from Raleigh
to Salt Lake City to rent
a car (thank you airline miles!)
drive from Salt Lake to Southern Idaho (Idaho Falls to be exact) to pick up a Harley Davidson
Tour up through Idaho and over to Montana
Down through Montana into
Drive from the top of Wyoming to the bottom, down through Yellowstone Country finally......
crossing back to Idaho to return the Harley, pick up the car, drive back to Salt Lake and fly home.
We've been to all of those places many times - but never on the same trip and NEVER on a motorcycle. We typically go to Utah, Colorado, the Dakotas and maybe Nebraska on the motorcycle - so this will be a first for us to go up into the extreme terrains on a bike. I am so excited I can hardly stand it!
My husband has been putting the pressure on me to do some camping up in Northern Montana while we're there - but being an avid fan of Animal Planet's show, "Grizzly Encounters" and huge fan of Brutus (who we're going to see while we're there by the way) - there is no $&#*@&$#$& way I'm camping in grizzly country. We've camped in Colorado, Utah, Arizona - and all we've had to worry about (I use the word "all" reluctantly) are, rattle snakes, coyotes, wolves and brown and black bears. But Grizzly country - THAT'S where I draw the line mister. No way - no how. End of Story.
Oh, and by the way - the mod quilt I'm working on is coming right along. So fresh and pretty. I love the bold color blocks that I have now put up on the design wall with stark white plain blocks in between. I have many more blocks to make. To be continued...
