Arlene and Bill who were camping at Mesa campground, half-emptied their camper of food and gave it to us, then we chewed the fat over a Gatorade – they were lovely!

  1. Well done Anna. I really enjoyed sharing part of this journey with you and really have enjoyed your friendship. I wish you all the best getting back into that “real world”- I think we were really in it. Your journal is excellent and some great photos and humorous commentary (PS I object to the dispersions cast that I can only cook macaroni cheese as discussed!)
