Tell all of your friends to “like” this page, so everyone can keep up with the Great Western Odyssey that will be pulling out of here next week!
Well, we’re gonna crank up the Prius about this time next week and head north and west. The REAL west!
First, we’re heading to our family reunion for the 4th of July outside of Nashville. After that, it’s first to Kansas City overnight and meet with a Principal who wants to meet and talk about some of my books.
Then, it’s several days of what seems to be continual driving, mostly 8 hours per day and less. Maybe I can get another book written while we’re on the road! West to Denver for overnight (Kansas is a WIDE state!). Up to Cheyenne then west to Salt Lake City, then up to West Yellowstone KOA for 5 nights. Using that as a base, we’ll go to Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.
Over and down to Buffalo, WY for 7 nights. Longmire Days Festival is 7/17-19 and we’ll stay at the same hotel (only 4 star hotel in a 2-star town; all the rest were 1-stars) for day trips to Deadwood, Little Big Horn, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments. Then across SD to someplace with a drugstore. Wall, SD, I think. That’s the only “thing” in that town. Down to Kansas City again, where I have 2-3 speeches (same topic) at different libraries. Then back to my brother’s house in Ashland City for a couple of days, then home by the 28th or 29th.
THIS, and the lack of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee between Salt Lake City and Kansas City again, more than anything else, will test the mettle of a marriage!!
YES, Bad Guys, there WILL be someone in our house watching out for your approach!!
