It's not like crazy uber hiking. My 60+ year old mother did it, as well as younger brother. He was wearing leather slippers when he did too. Otherwise, it's sort of like stopping at Mount Rushmore, without going on the trails.

Zions National Park is amazing too. It's a few hours away. There's this cool store in Virgin Utah that sells some great candy, Native American crafts, and semi precious rocks. I forget the name of the place, but there is like a mock up jail there. It has a sign that says Virgin Jail on it.

Road trips rock! Too bad you all won't be going through Moab Utah, because Arches National park is another amazing place.

I know you would probably notice - at some point

Monte Vista is in Colorado

gotta say - I'm very jealous - road trips are the best

but cruising around the desert Southwest - personal favorite

don't wander off and get lost out there

edit to add:

there's the same ting - essentially - going on at Bosque del Apache - which is in New Mexico - in case that makes your life simpler

I've been there - but not for the crane migration - apparently they have a festival too

You three need to put West "By Gawd" Virginia on that list. If you stop here, I recommend several places to stop by whilst visiting. For one, ya'll may want to stop by Seneca Rocks just to grab a few pics of the formation. Second, just so that you guys can get you fill of coal cinders. Take a ride up to Bald Knob on the Cass Scenic Railroad. Last but not least, grab your fishing poles guys. I may just take you guys fly fighing in the New River Gorge National Park on the New River.


Just a couple things to do here.

West Virginia is beautiful but it is unfortunately a fair bit out of our way.

We are going to be on the SC coast to visit with semperfortis and make our way North through the outer banks to DC and eventually New York City.

for reference purposes: Long Island Oddities

Looks like a pretty good collection of all sorts of stuff – hauntings, UFO sightings, "monsters" washed ashore, abandoned military areas, abandoned psych hospitals … the list goes on and on.

Long Island is a very strange place, and the women there have extraordinarily large hair.

I've got an uncle who's an avid fisherman, though. I should get his email and see how familiar he is with Camp Hero.

Beautiful country down there.


I've got it in my schedule to stop by and see Semper on my next trip down there as well.

There is a strange reason why that appeals to me...


I wonder why that is...

With an abandoned psych hospital you get it all – ghosts, evil experimental work, punishment and/or discrediting of dissidents, …



And they're all over Long Island. Before the 1950s I think mental patients must have been the majority of the Long Island population.

So I rented 3 of these bad boys for our trip.



It converts "everything" to fuel.


Now we never have to stop!

EDIT TO: Make clear I was, once again, laughing at Sdog's inimitable wit. I am wiping off my screen and keyboard... That's right, doggie. Your humor cost me some of my precious beer lunch, but it was well worth it.

PS - There is an energy vortex in Big Sur that the essalen Indians think is a portal to 'another world'. You guys may want to stop by there on your way to pick-up Mr. Clean.

Hey, I was watching a TV special today that reminded me .. Fouke, AR and Boggy Creek are in the same neck of the woods as Honobia and some of the other things I was talking about.

You haven't forgotten about the Fouke Monster and the Legend of Boggy Creek, have you?

I hesitate to ask. What's a Fouke Monster?

I don't like the sound of that at all.

The Fouke Monster

What, you never saw the movie?

1972 - The Legend of Boggy Creek. A real classic.
