You still here in the US. If you are come through NM(Socorro) you have a place to stay. I met you in Taos. You are more than welcome. Call me 520-405-8224 or e-mail through T-Rat. you are welcome anytime.

I'd rather live one day as a Lion than 1000 years as a sheep.

DC, I LOVE every single one of the pics you and others have posted. What some great memories! I feel so fortunate to have meet the coolest people ever this year.

Vicariously living Dog's North American adventure, and on several occassions living in them, has been better than ANY book or movie I've ever experienced.

I'm certainly inspired on a level I never thought possible to have my own adventures.

C A N N O T W A I T!

I've decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I'm having a party!!

Half way between San Antonio and Houston on Hwy 90.
.Kingsbury, just a dot on the map.


Stopped in at the Kingsbury Cafe, and had an amazing home cooked lunch.
Lunch, desert and coffee for two for under 20 bucks.
Might pay to note the number down and book ahead if your planning to stop there, they get busy.


We contemplated calling into the Kraft Saloon, serving beer and wine, plus they have the added attractions of live music, pool, darts and karaoke!
The excitement factor was through the roof!


We resisted the urge to sing and dance and headed for more intellectual pursuits.
But dang nabbit, it was closed when we got there!




We were both disappointed by this stage and had no other option but to return to Houston broken humans, a mere shell of our former selves.

I like ALL the pics with faces in them.

Those look like great places to hang out. My kind of joints.
Hey Denis, take a bit of time and sit down and chat with us here. Let Brit chime in also. You aren't here for much longer and we'd all like to know your thoughts as you come to the end of the journey.

I've been enjoying this thread immensely... Staggering photos and the narrative is amazing..

I wonder though- When it's all said an done, and Dog heads back down under (unless he decides to stay-which he should- really, and we'd love to have him as a citizen!).. I wonder how he'll sum us all up in a paragraph/bar conversation or less- as a nation of people- to folks who may have never met an American nor ever paid us a visit...

I think you're probably in a stage of reflection Denis. There has been so much you've absorbed in these last 9 months. Alaska alone will take awhile to totally get secured in your brain. Throw in all the other stuff and I'm guessing it'll be a good few months at home to really get your thoughts gathered. I'm glad you're ending this with Britt and taking time to chill. Utah can wait till you return. Mellow for the last days here, hang with HAP, he's done wonders for your visit. Maybe ask before you leave if anyone wants to raise a glass but otherwise you're doing it right my friend.

Can't you just hear the gears turning? On the road in Kansas with a "special" friend.


She and I have a special relationship now... I hope there are no videos on the interwebs.
