Into the Sun Tour: Day 9, Night out at Kirby’s

Into the Sun Tour: Day 8, One Night at Barleycorn’s

Let me start out by saying today was a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. The mass shooting in Vegas really hurt me. I was devastated and scared and angry and a blubbering mess for most of the morning. My heart was hurting and I wanted to pull the covers over my head and pretend the … Continue reading Into the Sun Tour: Day 8, One Night at Barleycorn’s

Into the Sun Tour: Day 7, Wichita, Kansas

Today has been a little disappointing. Once again, not getting enough sleep due to panic attacks. I was all fine with camping at the beginning.

Into the Sun Tour: Day 5, Drive through the Prairie

Like a Thomas Kincade painting come to … Continue reading Into the Sun Tour: Day 5, Drive through the Prairie

Into the Sun Tour: Day 4, The Great Salt Lake

Into the Sun Tour: Day 1, Journey to Salt Lake City

The journey to Salt Lake started early enough. I couldn’t sleep the night before; constant tossing and turning and anxiety kept me up. Even though I slept an hour past my alarm going off, I still managed to leave on time.  The first part of the journey was easy enough. Desert and red rock canyons … Continue reading Into the Sun Tour: Day 1, Journey to Salt Lake City
