I have not forgotten you but am suffering from the malady of exhaustion! We arrived safely in Salt Lake City after a couple night’s of boondocking; one a new spot for us with superb views that proved very quiet and peaceful despite being off I-15. And blessedly, the temperature had dropped from the previous night’s 104 near Las Vegas to a manageable 85 since we were at nearly 6500 feet.
Both Marc and I are struggling to get our bodies back into shape for the walking we’ve been doing; Marc is likely doing more than I but we’re both probably averaging at least four miles a day. Marc is working with his trainer in Park City and I am working with a different trainer on the far western side of SLC. It has been very tiring and hot, making it difficult to face all the studying we must do at night after work. Although the work isn’t hard, it is exact; with two large manuals of stuff we must learn for tests.
I may not get the chance to blog again from this location. We will spend the entire weekend purchasing some needed items specific to this job and studying! Come Monday at 4:30 a.m. we will be up getting ready to get back at it!
