I noticed last night it got chilly after sunset. That frightened me a little because I still haven’t gone gold panning like I promised myself I would. I have decided I want to stand atop the great divide, to see if I can look down on the entire continent. Can’t imagine that’s gonna go well since I haven’t climbed a mountain in twenty years. I better pick a little one. There must be little mountains in the Rockies, right?
So the plan is to hitchhike out to my son’s place and then continue onto the great divide and see about getting my pan in the creek. Hopefully, I get a chance to buy a camera along the way and have some pictures to post when I get back. So if y’all don’t hear from me for awhile I’m on a highway somewhere with my thumb out, and if you never hear from me again I done got et by a grizzly. In that event, it’s been great to know y’all folks and all the best. I better get to packin.
