Summer Vacation Schedule

This is just a rough hack.
Firm dates:
– We want to be in Vernal UT, on 9 June
– We want to be at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument near Billings MT, on 28 June.
– We want to be in the Yellow Stone area on 29 June for between 4 and 10 days
– We will be home by 4 August unless something comes up…. we have lots of flex here.

Summer Vacation 2018

Tira and I are working on our 2018 Summer Vacation…. aka the SD/Yellowstone trip.
As usual it’ll be 2 months. We’ll head first to GreatBasin NP, then east across UT to Dinosaur NM and Flaming Gorge Rec Area. From there it’s east into SD to Wind Cave National Park/Custer State Park/Black Hills National Forest and then Little Bighorn National Monument in WY and then over to Yellowstone.

Heather and Jeremiah will visit us, probably in Yellowstone for a few days. On our way home we’re going down through the Grand Teton NP where I’m hoping to stay for a week or more, before eventually heading home.

Technical Difficulties

If you’ve tried to visit recently we must apologize for a couple of technical problems. You know, Scott screwed up some server settings.

If you haven’t visited… welll…. why not?

Happy New Year 2018

Well, another year has come and gone. And it’s been one of the best! Tira and I have have had so many great experiences this year: Melanie and Rodney’s Wedding, our fabulous summer trip, seeing so many family members at the reunion, being able to spend time with Tim and Barb and our parents through the holidays, and with Nicholas and Kylie throughout the year.

This year I am turning a new page and will not be quoting Col Potter. Instead, a poem:

“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”

    -D. Simone
