This was quickly followed by another mishap when I blew I front tire on my tow vehicle. I ended up pulling the vehicle with the blown tire and even managed to bust up the internal workings of my front end. I wrote a blog post about that also:
Today I was able to at least get my vehicle back on four tires the same size. I still have not fixed the internal workings of the front end, but at least I am on all four wheels.
I have a lot of work to do to recover from my experience in Yellowstone. I look at the balance sheet and try to decide whether the experience was worth the strain. It was all an adventure and I got to see an amazing place and spent a lot of time exploring the remote parts of the park.
I was able to finish and publish my book during my stay there. The book is called Constant Vigilance and is available as an ebook on Amazon for $2.99.
Parts of the social experience left a very bad taste in my mouth. There were some wonderful couples working with me at the RV park. I believe that I have developed friendships with some of these couples that will endure. On another level, I was very disappointed by deception and breach of trust on the part of others. I guess all this is to be expected when you work closely with others in an constrained environment.
I can't speak to the dark parts of the experience at this moment. I need more time to process my thoughts and time and distance will help with that. I would like to take this time to thank all of you that have read this blog and followed the story. I still have a number of videos to edit and post on the web. I don't have the ambition to do this in the near future. Again, time and distance should help with that.
In the mean time, the adventure continues. As I recover from Yellowstone, I am researching my next trip and hoping for a happier ending next time.
