A Quick Visit to Ohio Before Our Journey Begins… 09/21 – 09/28/16

Well folks, Colorado was a blast… We worked a hell of a lot and we got to see some pretty neat little hippie towns…

And as usual, my #bovine friends were out to say goodbye… This is remarkable folks! #Cows don’t block the roads on this mountain very often yet every time I come and leave #TaylorPark for the #summer, they are out…

IMG 8136

They are such stable, massive creatures who work and live at their own pace… Life is pretty rough for these cows yet they take it like it is… You feel that spirituality in them… Just going with the flow…

Was #TheColoradoDreamRanch as inspirational and ground breaking as last year? Of course not… It was a lot different this year with more growth with the new love I have found while discovering new things about ourselves and the places around us…

IMG 8152

But I can definitely tell you this… Every time I look at #PineConeMountain and #MatchlessMountain, I remember those two amazing, spiritual experiences climbing those #mountains… That’s why memories are the most valuable possession a man can own… Because when your body has given up and all your riches are slipping away because they don’t mean anything anymore, it’s your memories that guide you to the next life…

So, I try to create as many memories I can so when I do go, I have a nice reminiscent journey of a magnificent life to remember while I enter the unknown… All of your houses, cars and even family you leave behind… yet you take your memories with you…

When you hear of folks having near death experiences, they always claim that life flashed before their eyes… It may seem like a short journey but I believe time stops at this moment and you relive your whole life in seconds before you pass…

Because when you are dying, remember you are not only leaving the earth, your family and all of your possessions behind… You are also leaving your biggest enemy in life behind… And that’s time… So when you are in-between this life and whatever is next, time no longer exists, so your memories take over to guide you through a long journey into who the hell knows what…

Well, Tracey and I planned our trip back to #DeathValley very carefully… We had a month before we started our next job, so we decided to drive home and visit Tracey’s family… But we didn’t want to travel separately when we had to come through #Colorado on our way back… So we left our car at a friend of Vic Sweet’s house in Colorado… If you don’t remember Vic, he was the first person I hung out with in Death Valley… A great guy with a real passion for movies and comics…

Not only would it save us a boatload in gas to leave her car behind… It also allows us to enjoy a nice long #journey in #TheMillenniumFalcon together as intended…

IMG 8219

$1.97 in gas folks! And people actually claim #Obama is a bad President yet gas prices are low, the economy is practically fully recovered and we are not at war with anyone… Hopefully we can elect a #Republican next so we can screw this all up because this horrible agenda has yielded results that make me just too happy… Time to cater to the rich and fuck it all up!

We soon arrived in Ohio… I was so nervous meeting her mother… This is her sister’s yard above where her husband Dan put together a nice bbq feast for all of us to enjoy…

IMG 8222

I enjoyed this #trip a lot more than I thought… Tracey’s mother was an amazing woman…

IMG 8224

I loved the fact that she would have a card game every time you visited… I learned how to pay all sorts of new games I had neve even heard of…

IMG 8225

And how refreshing it was to actually go and visit someone at their house without the TV or radio on… I can see there are many benefits being raised as a Christian conservative… I just wonder if they out weigh the setbacks… lol…

IMG 8226

And here’s the newest, biggest setback that is now facing the #GOP… I mean really folks? The fact you can show minutes upon minutes of video of this man lying and then find other video of him contradicting himself, should sound off many alarms alone… When we can no longer rely on the truth, that’s when we are truly lost… And I know the truth is hard to find but when you have a leader lying daily and then blaming the media for reporting those lies, you are entering very dangerous territory…

IMG 8227

For the first thing a dictator does to gain power is lie and silence the media… Because he knows if the truth is compromised and no one trusts the media to find the truth, then he can make up his own reality with his won rules… And that’s when we no longer are free…

IMG 8228

I’m not claiming #Trump is in this alone because I think he has a very powerful force behind me… And it’s the right wing conservatives who would love to go back to the way we were with segregation and privilege for those with the right heritage and the right color of skin…

IMG 8229

And the scariest thing of all, is a good quarter of this country would be ok with a dictatorship, if they consciously know it or not… That is way too high of a percentage to ignore… Because with the right amount of lies along with chaos, any man could take over any #Government… Something I believe Trump is too familiar with…

IMG 8230

Ohio was very beautiful…. We were surprised to find a #RestStop where you could stay with electric, water and a dump… I hope more of these will be made across the country… How great would it be to be able to just pull off of the #highway and have a full service site… oh what the future brings…

IMG 8256

Tracey and I visited for like 5 days and then we hit the road to go get her car and make our way to our new job…

IMG 8259

But we had a lot of road to cover and nothing to do to keep us entertained…

IMG 8255

But then Tracey found a website where you could visit location shots where the original #NationalLampoonsVacation was filmed… And they were all scattered around Kansas and Colorado… So we figured we would drive to Kansas and start a National Lampoons tour there…

IMG 8248

I was so excited! What an original, exciting adventure to go on…

$1.88 gas prices folks… God that Obama sucks… lol!

IMG 8252

Then Tracey also found a little town who was having a “Wizard of OZ” festival… This little town called #Wamego in Kansas is the home of #TheWizardOfOz with a #Museum and all kinds of fun things to do…

So, the family visit was a huge hit with a trip to church, great family time playing cards and my first restaurant experience in a barn… Wow! Life is good! Especially when you are practicing your true #freedom on the road…. I highly recommend it!

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
