We traversed thirteen states in about three weeks, went to four Major League Baseball games, survived hellacious rain storms, ate probably the best barbecue in America (Joe’s in Kansas City), survived the seemingly endless monotony of western Kansas and all of Nevada, and in Northern California met up with old friends and ate as much sushi as possible at Mikuni’s (thanks, Rick!!!) and made frequent trips to In-N-Out.
My son and I got to know one another again. He’s been in school in the L.A. area and in NYC for over a decade getting his PhD. Although I’m dealing with some significant health problems, like I told him, I would have gone with him on this trip if I had to crawl. And I mean that. How many fathers get the opportunity to spend three weeks with one of their children after a long period of absence. Probably not many, and I jumped at the chance.
We posted a sequence of photographs on an iCloud photo share. I can provide access if you want to see them. Send me a message via this site.
I was just too busy and often too tired to keep up with the trip in these pages, however, I may write a summary. If I do, I will post it here. I’m including a few photos from the share.
I’m a lucky dad.
