After taking some of our “leisure” time yesterday to swim in the pool and do maintenance on the vehicles, we’re headed to Utah today and this time we mean it.
We lose an hour heading into Utah (MDT) but the sun doesn’t care and as far as it’s concerned it’ll give us about the same amount of daylight barring any entropic catastrophe.
We figure we’re two days behind where we wanted to be at this point of the trip, but only because we had to make lodging reservations at the national parks well in advance so that was the schedule we were trying to adhere to. However, we’ve been canceling those one day at a time (we had a multi-day reservation window, figuring we’d land there at some point within it) and now that we’re losing interest in keeping a schedule, the trip is becoming even more enjoyable. If you’re sitting at a desk today reading this, you should try it someday.
Spirits are high, supplies are sufficient, and our wanderlust is boundless.
