Liza and Jeanette go for a drive
I used to walk to high school with Jeanette every day. Now, decades later, we’re going for a big
walk hike together.
Two high school friends, meeting up for a girly road trip. We’re as opposite as can be: She’s slim, I’m curvy. She eats slowly, I eat faster. She walks fast, I walk slowly. Will we still be friends by the end? I’ll try to post from the road, but I’m also trying to unplug.
Rocky mountains here we come! A small bag each. No fancy dinner outfits. Just jeans, hiking shoes, hoodies, down vests. Meet up in Denver. Rent a car. No hotel reservations. Drive through the ravishing beauty and stop in whatever motel along the way. Off the beaten track in an unknown town to use the laundromat, fill up the cooler and go again.
Gaze at Lone Mountain. Raft the rapids of the Snake River. Canoe a lake. Hike Ousel Falls. Picnic along the way. Don’t think I can get on a horse these days… Soak in the hot springs for which Montana is famous. Go to cowboy bars and flirt with ’em. Destinations: Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Big Sky, Butte, Glacier. Driving the Gallatin Gateway and Going to the Sun Road. Back down through Great Falls, Cody and returning to Denver.
I’ll fly back to Tropica and she, back to Princeton. Home in time to watch the presidential debates! During the trip, I’ll be wearing a Hillary button in Trump country. Let’s see how that goes.
I’ll try to post from the road. You might check my instagram feed from time to time. I’ll have my ipad with me, but it’s difficult for me to post pictures on Camp Liza with it. If you don’t hear from me for awhile, well, gone fishin’ or out of internet range in America’s big wild west. I’ll be back in late September to tell all.
P.S. Love traveling after Labor Day when everyone’s gone back to school or work. A retirement perk. (from the word, perquisite!)
P.P.S. I retain my fear of bears after previous visits to Montana. I’ve packed my trusty bear bell to wear on my backpack to warn them that Liza’s coming and to clear out!
