LITTLE CHILDREN

The older one has a driver's license. They both have debit cards.

They will stay on the tour till Seattle.

They will not spend all their money in Boulder since we are leaving today after a wonderful night with Jodie Hoke and Carol Keeley and they new friends last night at the Boulder Bookstore.

We are looking at Maps.

We are reading for the Rockies. Next stops:

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #12.6: REPTILE HOUSE GOES TO 12,000 FEET

Not Much in the Way of Westward Movement

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, COLORADO:

On the last morning in Boulder I followed
a raccoon
it waddled down Pearl.
I though she would run into the street.
She dropped into the sewer.

The car was a tight squeeze - Read More

WILDLIFE

Gloria: "That moose is ok, but I prefer them with big horns."

Robin: "Don't be sexist."

Gloria: "I just like those big horns."

Robin: "They are not horns. They're antlers.

Gloria: "Whatever."

Robin: "What do you think of Boulder?"

Gloria: "Spectacular mountains, much cooler than El Paso."

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #11.9: PASSENGER #1

GLORIA, aka, GB, aka, GLO, aka CO-PILOT across America and Back

Welcome aboard to my newest travel partner, Gloria Barragan, as she prepares for the Sidewind Across America Tour -- shopping in a local camping section. She claims she had never slept in a tent.

She pretty much blew the minds of the Barnes and Nobel staff in El Paso.

"How did you do the publicity?" they asked after the standing-room only crowd on Wedneday night.

"They're my friends," GB said. "I've got lots of them."

The B & N sold out and had to reorder!

GO GLO! SO HAPPY TO HAVE MY FRIEND WITH ME ON THE SIDEWIND.

GB has been to Alaska with me before. She will do it again now after we pick up my nephew Marshall and niece Carlyn in Denver. We will hang in Denver / Boulder with Carol Keeley, Jodi Hoke, and hopefully catch a glimpse of BK Loren.

Then this dream team will cross the Rockies heading straight for the Pacific.

Departing El Paso Monday for points north: Boulder, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Anchorage and on...

Next stop Boulder Colorado on June 23 at the Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe @ 6 and then on June 25 at the Boulder Book Store at 7.30. Read More
