A week of living!

First off, I finally found Wifi!!  This has been MUCH harder than I anticipated.  I finally found a hot spot, but it’s timed, so I will make this concise.

Cliff notes:

–  Hit the highway in Marietta Saturday at 10:30AM

–  Made it to Mission: Wolf at Sunday at 10:00PM (Yeah, that was A LOT of driving)

–  Spent three AMAZING days at M:W

—  Being so close to the wolves was mesmerizing

– –  The people at M:W, from the founder down, are some of the best people I have ever met

—  Leaving was one of the hardest things I have had to do, but I WILL BE BACK!!!

–  Spent the next night sleeping adjacent to the Great Sand Dunes

–  Spent the next night camping in solitude 10,000 ft up a mountain (AWESOME!)

– I am now in Vernal, UT and will crash somewhere locally tonight

The whole trip has been amazing.  From feeding the wolves, playing with the pups, meeting great people, and overheating my car while climbing desert trails I shouldn’t be on.  This is merely the beginning!

Onto what’s important, pictures!  I have taken at lest 300+ already, so I will have to slim it down and pick a few good ones for now.

Whelp, the store is closing.  I will add more later.  Catch you on the flip side!

Felt like a cowboy, showering with my holster nearby.  A cowboy with solar technology.

They walked by as soon as I started showering.  They wanted dinner and a show.

Just needed a short break.  I was more upset that my engine cooked sweet potato wasn't finished yet.

I am forced to assume this is for wrangling snakes.

Seriously, probably the best sweet potato I've ever had.

I love sweet potatoes, but they require so much heat to cook. Easy solution, wrap them up extra tight and cook them with the engine while driving.  Works like a charm!
