Lake Powell, Day 1. Fall City, WA to Yakima, WA

And Now for Something Completely Different ~ Monty Python's Flying Circus

Thursday, September 16, 2010.

It has been over a year since I last posted to this blog - "Life Without Touch" I must say modestly still reads well to me even now. But it was very difficult and time consuming to write such pieces. I just ran out of steam.

And so, I need to try something with a more modest goal. Simply to journal a trip. As it happens, today after work, Patty, Baxter and I departed for our third annual Lake Powell vacation. So starts the reincarnation of this blog.

We departed Fall City about 5:30 p.m. Arrived at the Yakima Wally World at 8 p.m., about 130 miles down the road. Chicken and cheese quesadillas and some of our home grown lemon cukes for dinner on the boaterhome parked at the edge of the Wally World parking lot. Patty has gone to bed, I am typing away listening to the incessant traffic on I-82. We'll get going as early as possible tomorrow morning after coffee and cereal. We have a long way to go tomorrow, our longest day, 476 miles to Jerome, Idaho.

It is great to be on the road, feeling the anticipation of our return to Lake Powell and seeing all our C-Brat friends. It will of course all be over far too quickly, but from here, Day One, we have nothing but great expectations.
