I did not sleep well last night. I think I finally fell asleep at around 2 in the morning. And now I’m up at 6. Awesome.

I got dressed. Last time suiting up like this. Mom and I tried to sneak out but Jolene caught us before we left. Mom made me eat a littl...

We woke up at 6 something I think, and groggily loaded up into the car. Mom made me a pb&j, apologizing for how low our supplies were were starting to run. That is such a silly thing for her to have apologized for. For more than two weeks she has been taking care of me...

Up early again. Time to get out of my bed, head downstairs, and pick Mom up from Alia’s place. It was pretty hard leaving the comfort of my own bed, knowing how much more lay ahead of me over the next few days. With Mom at the wheel we began again, heading south to our...

After another night of rest we headed up to Provo to do some work, and to just enjoy some time together. We slept in too late, so we missed the free breakfast. We sat in the lobby while mom took care of checking out and I struck up a conversation with a kindly old bike...

Mom, Alia (she drove down from Provo last night to hang with us), and I woke up to make it to 9 o’clock church. After our complimentary hotel breakfast in a lobby swarming with Chinese people which smelled strongly of curry thanks to the lovely Indian who people run th...

So we didn’t make it quite as far as we had hoped last night thanks to my body pretty much shutting down on me. Thankfully, that exhaustion helped me sleep super hard so when we did wake up fairly early the next morning, I felt well rested. I ate a breakfast of PB&J an...

Up early to drive out to Church Rock, the checkpoint from last night. I swear, starting these posts with how early we woke up is starting to feel redundant, isn’t it? Holy crap this ride was sooo much easier than the trip yesterday. Felt like I was flying. We booked it...

Another early morning to make sure we can cover the 100 mile day in time for me to make it to Monticello early enough to attend a session. After sleeping in the cool mountains of Colorado, getting to sleep in the desert land of Moab was kind of rough. To make matters w...

We woke up early but took a while to actually get on the road. Mom surprised me with a hearty breakfast of eggs, toast, sausage and bacon to start the day off right. I swear I must have eaten better in the middle of nowhere than I did in the cities. Finally after the f...

Another early morning to make sure I made it to the temple for the first session of the day. Our campsite was only two miles from the temple so I put on my shirt and tie before leaving the campground.

The Vernal Temple is a remodel of Vernal’s old tabernacle. Walking ar...
