    Day 21 - Done & Done

    September 28, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Not a lot happened today. It was a long driving day and at our destination, Sheridan, we had pizza. That was about it. One interesting thing though was the Big Horn mountain range which was another visual treat on the way. At the summit we were over 9000 feet above sea level and signs were pointing to rocks of various ages and the oldest that we noticed predated the Cambrian Period, 2.5 billion years ago. Also, it was a particularly hot day and in the car we had the air conditioning on and so it was a bit of a surprise to pass large patches of snow that were shaded from the sun. That was pretty surreal. And we hit the 3 000 mile mark today just outside Cody.

    Yep, that was about all. 'Done and done' as our waiter at the pizza restaurant liked to say.

    Song of the Day:
    Roy Orbison - You Got It (heard it in the car)

    Exploring Sheridan

    May 1, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    We enjoyed driving around Sheridan, and loved it's geographic setting at the feet of the Bighorn Mountains. They have a beautiful YMCA, so Gordon wanted to workout ... AGAIN! I didn't feel up to it yet, especially as my foot has been really bothering me lately (strained in tango class before we left). However, I was sure I could find SOMEthing to do.

    Well, the helpful young man at the desk gave us a pass to the "premium" locker rooms. I don't think he was supposed to, but when I saw that beautiful hot tub I knew I was in the right place. While soaking, I had a good conversation with a local resident, Flavia, whose family is from Sheridan, but who had lived most of her life in Brazil, France, Florida and other places. We compared life in Sheridan and Olympia, both of us loving many things about our beautiful cities, but both bemoaning a toxic political mono-culture: Sheridan's on the right, Olympia's on the left. Both of us were a little shocked to hear it was the same on both ends of the spectrum.

    The conversation left me a bit chastened. Is there anywhere left where folks can respectfully disagree and still be good friends and neighbors?

    But the soak was just what I needed, and my foot felt really really good the whole time I was in the tub. Gordon ran 2 miles, but didn't gloat so I guess it's ok.
