The most interesting thing happened this morning: we were driving east along the highways, leaving behind the beautiful red and gold vistas of Utah, and headed toward the deep greens and rich browns of Colorado… and when the RV passed from UT into CO, we totally, completely entered the Twilight Zone.
First, it started to rain. Then REALLY rain. Then the GPS suddenly and inexplicably added one hour to the arrival time, even though we’re in the same time zone, so instead of an hour’s grace period, we were cutting it close. Then Humom got a text, from me… while I was driving (and not texting), that I’d sent over a month ago. As we were driving through the twisty, up-and-down highways, and you can’t tell if your engine is shifting into high gear because you’re ascending or descending, the rivers seem to flow uphill sometimes. Then the winds picked up - bad - and the RV was tossed around so much that Sauerkraut’s water bowl spilled. (It was right above my head, so dribbled down my back.) Then we went up, up into the mountains and it started snowing. In June. SNOWING. It’s bad when the tornado you saw in Utah was the LEAST stressful weather event of the drive!
Maybe normal for the Rockies, but in my book, this was damaging my calm.
Andre, Humom, and Sauerkraut. This picture was not photoshopped - he's really that big
and she's really that small!

So... this is the last from-the-road Blog Post for the 2015 Kraut and About Tour. Tomorrow we head back to the Sooner state. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us! It’s been an honor, and a lot of fun. Most importantly, it's been a pleasure to work with so many amazing, fun, dedicated people in each city we’ve visited!
