Day - 26 UT AZ NV CA

Were home. It's been a nice long trip. The last day of the trip was fucking hot, skin melting hot. It was sad to leave the scenic byways and enter the 4 lane highways and corporate super centers. Ice made a good substitute for chew. Thanks for following along and stay tuned for some pics and vids in the future.

Day 25 - UT

Hiked around goblin valley after a shitty night sleep thanks to rain. Scenic byways 24, 12, 89 & 9 took us through the most amazing views. Right thru Capitol reef and Dixie was an amazing drive. Drove thru Zion but it was dark by then.

Day 23 - CO & UT

Woke up and went for a nice hike up the colorado trail just across from our camp site. The camp host told us the 50 was shutting down for a bike race so we packed up an hightailed outta there. We raced road bikers thru the pass and stopped in gunnison for some grub, and bought some taxidermy items. Crossed over into UT and ran outta gas 1 mile from the next station, good thing I brought a can.

Day 22 - CO

Took the dirt road up to the orient land trust and soaked in some hot springs with all the nakies. Missed a great photo op of a old very tan nude dude rooting around in his pop top westy. Headed to angel of shervano? Campground in isabella nat forest, then made camp, dinner and fire just in time for some rain. We ate, and enjoyed a little fire. Great campsite and it was nice and cool all night.

Its been nice sleeping in beds and on couches for the last 18 days but no its back in the van for us. St. Louis was good fun. Got some fish tacos, saw Joan of Arc and the 2 opening acts Bombdogs & Impodes were really good at the Firebird. We stopped off at a closed car museum but managed to get some cool photos from the fence.

Chicago to Milford 

Fly's from the nearby cattle farm really liked the van, so much that i had to hang fly tape in it overnight. Ass, gas or grass, fly's have nothing to offer.
