Prelude to Manifesto

My people!

It’s been a long time since I posted here. Almost a year, even. And that last post was mighty darned depressing.

But not any longer! I’m going to spend a week in the northern Rockies, seeing all the rocky goodness and having the full Rockies experience.

I’m going here:

Pictured:  approximately 2000 people

This whole trip is just to avoid North Dakota.

So as I normally do on big vacations, I’m gonna write about it as I go.

And it’s already started! Sort of! In the sense that I have left Atlanta, but have not yet arrived at my vacation. I’m in the middle of a four-hour layover in Salt Lake City, is what I’m saying here.

But soon, I’ll begin my actual Rockies experience! It starts with a carving of four of our most carved presidents and ends with Marian Call. In between, I will have the Complete Rockies Experience. Whatever that is. I think I have to buy a lot of flannel shirts, grow a vast beard, film a New Yorker getting gored by a bison, and write a manifesto.

Watch this space daily for the week. I hope this will feel like you’re traveling with me in this 100% accurate and not made up at all adventure. Except that you don’t get to choose the music in the rental car. Not that I’d let you if you were here for real. Just bring your headphones.

Stay tuned! Day one: Rapid City, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Devil’s Tower.
