Welcome back. I hope you had a safe final leg of your journey. It's good to be able to keep up on your travels - ah the joy of the internet! I'm going to have to try to make it to SnB when you finally get back - which might be another two weeks? I'm just thinking next week is the first and then Labor Day. At any rate, I want to hear more details in person;-)

Deb Robson

Missed you this week! Next week I'll be going to hear Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea). I'll be there Labor Day, and likely thereafter. I heard you've been getting to SnB lately. Look forward to seeing you and yes, more details in person. . . .

I love driving cross-country. I'm fond of cities, for some reason, though the speed is not quick.

Actually, I like cities and interesting surroundings during sunshine, and I like flat, straight, boring surroundings after sunset. It's me and the stripes on the road, and closer to meditation than anything else I do, even knitting.

I saw the salt flats when I was 8 and I still remember. My parents had us get out of the car and look at the ground we were driving upon. It really stuck in my mind.

Welcome home... I started a PGR sample sock from her Ethnic Socks book. Slow going because I don't sit still and knit alone very often, and I can't knit this with too much distraction... but it's very satisfying.

Toe depth and zigzag intarsia, diamonds up the front. Way cool. Took 2 tries to get my cast on in 2 colors, to have the 2 colors in the right places!!!

Hi Deb,
Just a quick note to thank you for all the amazing photos you've shown on this trip. I enjoy them so much.
Hope things are back to "normal" for you soon!

Glad you've enjoyed them! I have one more post to do on the trip. I am also awash in work to catch up on {grin}.

I know what you mean about the food thing - being gluten and dairy free was a challenge in Nevada!
As for the solar panels on roofs, HOAs have to change their attitude about such things, along with having to have green lawns everywhere (what's wrong with perennial gardens anyway?). It seems mad to me that we aren't covering every square foot of roof space with solar hot water/heating/PV even in the places that have freeze/thaw cycles like Co.

Deb Robson

I specifically bought a house that is *not* in a neighborhood with an HOA. I don't like to be told what color I can paint my house. I also bought a house with good south-facing roof surfaces. However, I haven't been able to afford to put panels up.

The freeze/thaw cycles can be dealt with. I have friends who have bought a house here about 20 years ago that already had solar panels on it. There are better panels now, of course, but those have (in general) been trucking along.

Let's not get me started on bluegrass lawns in this climate {wry grin}. . . .

On dairy- and gluten-free, you might enjoy WaterCourse Foods in Denver, if you haven't discovered it already. . . . .
