at 6 a.m. this morning I gave thomas the keys to my toyota truck and maps to Chaco Canyon (one of my top ten places on the planet earth) He is on his way and I really hope he loves his tour. I would have gone with him but I am suffering some hip hip today.

@dyslexia,
You should have told him to "take a hike". He said that my poetry on The Realm was really bad.

Let's hope Dyslexia didn't diddle with the gas gauge.

He might be in New Mexico, but judging by the wind in Farm Town, he got a good whiff of Arizona and parts of southern Utah.

Is it time to organize a search party?

@roger,
I'm hand wringing, but dys isn't. Turns out Thomas wasn't going to leave until dark (eek, from my sissy point of view). Thomas is resourceful, we have faith. Or, to be more exact, hope.

@ossobuco,
Me too. We're getting a light rain here, and I've seen that turn into a howling blizzare (really) once you get on top of the plateau. Chaco is at least 1,000' higher than Farmington and Albuquerque, and that dirt road is a special kind of clay. Hard as a brick when dry; slick soup when wet. No cell phone from Chaco, either.

@roger,
I asked, he has a cell, but of course he'd have to be in cell territory, which I assume is far from Chaco.

There is a ranger station, given he stays on the main dirt road, er, trail.

I've no idea about search alerts (city girl) and of course, he might have left hours ago. I think both D and D are sleeping.

With luck, he's stopped somewhere for a snack and is lolling about (he has gas and water).

@CalamityJane,
The Bacons are an interesting family... major guy in urban planning (no, not Kevin).

@ossobuco,
I'm worried about Thomas. He may be back home, all asleep. (No one answers, for good reason, re meds). He wasn't back, last I knew, but may be back since then. It's tough out there right now.

I'm being silly, I hope.

Not to Boomerang's, no. I did bring it to Chaco Canyon, though.

For those of you who don't know Chaco Canyon: it's a "National Historic Park", and features mainly two attractions: One is its typical South-Western landscape, the other is one or two handfuls of Anasazi excavation sites with interesting ruins and petroglyphs. I'm too tired to sort through the whole pile of pictures I've made but here's an example of each essential

A rock in the landscape:

@Thomas,
Christalmighty, I'm going to beat you silly next I see you, perhaps tomorrow.

Glad to see you post, dammit.
