We took off for on quick weekend trip. We wanted to find a lonely spot, "far from the cares that are" and far from anyone else. Did it work out for us? Well, I have the story and photos posted to our blog. You can come along and find out. You can find it here -

“Since there was not a tour bus in sight, we thought it safe to make a dash into Erick Schats Bakery to purchase a Mule Kick Sandwich for lunch in the park. A Mule Kick is a roast beef sandwich on sourdough with sliced jalapeño peppers, a sandwich that will wake you up to meet the rest of the day. Too many jalapeños in one bite and you can see jesus.”

I swear I just spit hot tea most of the way across the family room. That got ahold of my funny bone and didn’t want to turn loose.

I haven’t tried a Mule Kick, but I’ve had a little sashimi with enough wasabi to improve my vision considerably, after the tears subsided.

Thanks for the link and info on Curly Fletcher. I’ve heard a number of those poems in songs, but didn’t know the origins, Don Edwards sings some of them.

A bit of history from Michael Martin Murphy.

As always, thank you for letting us tag along on another Ski3pin adventure!

Great story about familiar shared spaces.

Side note:
I've had trouble accessing your blog from my phone, and the links posted here take me to a blank page.

I've figured out it's better to read your posts on Blogger, which is the app for that platform. I've now got you bookmarked, and should be able to at least try to keep up with your prolific writing and excellent travels. 🤠
