Well, dear readers... getting a good Internet signal isn't easy up here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, but patience is a great virtue, and I managed to collect enough of it to at least get a post and a couple pictures up over at the ARMCHAIR TRAVELERS PORTAL. We have come through two thunderstorms, and past a forest fire we could see off in the distance, but finally arrived in an area of "possibilities." Tomorrow, we will try to find our way to Hopewell Lake.
So far, we have seen deer, antelope, and various small creatures. No snakes or tarantulas, though, which suits me just fine. I did put a "mystery picture" up at the Portal, and if anyone can guess what it is, I will put your name in the Captain's hat for a souvenir. Along with any of you who come up with the most probable location of the lost Dupont Mine (there are two separate areas that both boast of being the right one). Hmm... the important thing, now, is to try not to get any of our information from the "Wild Goose Chase Gazette!"
