Transitions. Effective December 30th 2020 I am back in Florida.  We left Idaho and flew across the Rocky Mountains toward our first stop, Denver.                 The Southwest flight was 100% packed. Not one seat empty. I sat in the middle seat at the back of the plane, giving […]

The last 15 miles is on a dirt and gravel road that at times wasn’t easy to discern from the surrounding area. When I traveled November 6th the gravel was very loose, meaning my car could slide around […]
