It seems like it's been forever since I've had the chance to blog.I've missed you all.I'd like to say thanks to all our friends from home who called during the river trip we missed.That meant so much girls.Thanks.
You'll see this picture of Edie holding her laptop.She is desperately trying to find a signal so she can do payroll.Bless her heart,she was just shy of hitting the panic button!She really has to go through a lot sometimes to do what she does.
I wrote not long ago about not seeing too many critters out here.Well...not only did I get to see something,it was right at our campsite!!And not only was it a critter,it was a ...RATTLESNAKE!!!!!!!.It had been run over but was still alive.I've been told they won't die 'til the sun goes down and that seems to be true.We went over to look at it .It was still moving but was definitely only waiting for sunset.There was no hope for it (Troye).Edie walked up to it and it raised it's head.She stepped on it's head!!!Can you believe it?She decided before we left home that she would collect rattles and she did.Cut them right off!I'm not sure if she was being stupid or brave so to keep peace,we'll call it brave.
The landscape is changing from ,flat,hot ,sandy desert to rocky,hot sandy desert.We are moving toward the mountains of Congress Az.To a ranch owned by Twister Heller.I'm excited.The days are hot and the nights have been cool.Still needing my blanket.I understand Congress is very small and I fear we may not have signal again.Still,I am told that it is beautiful there.
We are being met by two different papers in Congress.One of which is The Phoenix Repulic.They will meet us early in the a.m. and film our leaving camp and do our story.
I guess that's it for now.Love to all.Shelby and Leslie,I love and miss you more than you will ever know.
