Taking the super-long way home
We've had the most ridiculous day... "stuff into the car, stuff out of the car" to the nth degree. We awoke in Crested Butte, loaded up the cars and made a quick trip up the road to the hamlet of Gothic, home of the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab. From there back down to CB and then the 100 miles to Salida.
Unload the cars (we had two, because I'd been in CB since last Monday and the DM arrived on Friday). Get into the DM's car and drive 60 miles to Cañon City to take down a show there, then turn around and drive back to Salida.
Unload the car again.
Get back in to MY car and drive 25 miles to Buena Vista to collect our farm share (we missed the market yesterday), have some supper, and then drive back to Salida and unload the car AGAIN.
Had there been a reasonable route for managing all this, we would have taken it, but instead we had the surreal experience of coming home three times before finally arriving. We've now got multiple piles all over the house, but at least they're in one geographic location.
But hey... I told you Crested Butte was a fine place to teach classes. See?......
