Day 25: Aurora, CO
Another long distance drive,
the full length of Wyoming,
from Sheridan all the way thru to Denver, CO.
Interstate 25 in Wyoming has more roadkill
than any place I have ever seen.
Probably 2-3 flat animals every 20 yards!
Mostly jackrabbits, I figure, judging
from the fur and feet.
Maybe a coyote here and there.
What a mess!
Speaking of dead stuff,
I'll bet I collected every bug in eastern Wyoming
using the front of my car to catch 'em.
I stopped for a brief rest in Cheyenne, WY
for a cup of Starbucks,
and noticed a curious thing:
there's a lot of people wearing cowboy hats!
Men, women and children all wearing Stetsons.
Do they wear suits on Halloween?
Also did a hand-wash on the car, myself!
It is said that a man only truly gets to know
his car when he washes it himself.
So now me and the Puple Penetrator have shared a moment.
It is also said that a clean car runs better,
and it sure ran fine for the final push of 120 miles
into Aurora, CO.
I expect to be hanging out here in the Denver area
for a while, shooting LOTS of pool,
and catching up with some good friends.
