A trip to the not so wild, wild West

I've written a few times about wanting to visit all fifty states. I started the year needing nine states. In April, I spent a few minutes in Arkansas. We were down to the elite eight!

All of those eight are in the western United States. I've always wanted to see Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park. By going to those places, I could pick up four new states. It was time for a road trip. South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho...here we come!

That's it for this trip. The West was just a bit wild. It's on to the Final Four. How am I going to get Utah, Nebraska, North Dakota and Alaska?

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
