Woke bright and early in SLC and hit the road by 8:45. Utah is just beautiful, stunning scenery. And such nice people. I realized we were on I-80, and so had to play the really excellent "Highway Eighty (She's A Might Fine Road) by Dave Carter & Tracy Chapman (I missed you, , and also ) and then I remembered we were in Utah so I forced Janet to dig up my old techno by the Utah Saints (do you remember them? UTAH SAINTS! UTAH SAINTS! UTAH SAINTS U-U-U-UTAH SAINTS! blah blah What can you do for me? blah blah Through the lightning etc.) and then we hit the techno until we could count to four no longer.

And then into Wyoming.

Apologies to anyone from Wyoming.

But my god. We do not like Wyoming. We were singing a variety of variations on "Why, Why, Wyoming?". The landscape just isn't a patch on Utah or Idaho or even Oregon. And we had lunch in Rawlins, which was the biggest town for a ways, and it was just totally mediocre. Not that the people are nasty or rude or anything, it was just boring as hell to drive through. So whine whine whine, my... Chrysler hurts.

To Wyoming's credit, there's an excellent hot spring in a town called Saratoga WY. The town has built a nice concrete enclosure, and the pool is HOT, over 120F is my bet. And it's free. And then after that, you go sit in the creek which has the offflow from the pool so you can mix the appropriate level of heating & cooling you're looking for.

And now we're on our way to see and the boys!

We'll also hopefully upload the last three days of photos. Sorry, haven't done a very good job of integrating them. (Or is it that LiveJournal doesn't do a very good job of integrating them.... Anyway) Have a look at http://jofish.com/galleries/2005/ for much photodocumentation.

Btw, usual apologies if I haven't been replying to email or making the phone calls I should. It's not because I don't love you, I promise.
