Blog Update

First off, I must sincerely apologize for the delayed response to the healthy inputs I received for the pageview count contest.  I've been on a bit of a little roadtrip since last Friday and my internet access (and admittedly cellphone access) has been a little spotty to say the least.  Certainly wetter than the last few times I drove cross-country (Aug 2014, Dec 2012, Oct 2012, and Mar 2010) - I mean in just the last couple of days I've almost been washed off the road several times - E. Colorado, N Central Utah, S. Idaho, etc.  Still, at least no snow/ice so far (fingers crossed) - it's raining/hailing outside my motel window here in MT right now :)  From my previous trips....I didn't think it ever really rained in S. Idaho - at least not like today - but then again, I've only driven I-84/86 - this is my first time doing I-15.  Gotta say...yesterday was my first time driving I-70 west of Denver though - and that was pretty amazing!

Sooooo, getting down to brass tacks, there were 2 entries actually showing 5,000,000, but one was several minutes earlier - so congratulations to Jbrey - I will be working with him to figure out which project he gets with the [available] artist of his choice.  Congrats Jbrey!  And thank you very much to everyone else who participated and who I was unable to find the time to email via my cellphone mid-drive :)

Hopefully I'll get some more pics and posts updated a little later this week with some more network stability...we shall see.



  1. I've taken the train west of Denver (the Amtrak California Zephyr) several times -- I highly recommend it if you ever get a chance.

    1. I have heard very good things about that train from relatives too - a beautiful way to see the rockies - and saves wear and tear on the car - particularly in winter. I may try it for a future visit.
