The 2800 miles traveled during Trip #4 were the best time Iíve ever had. As far as Iím concerned, the trip ended on an upbeat and at exactly the right time. I had traveled through the very best that the West has to offer and met some incredible people along the way. For a few hundred bucks, I could have repaired the damage from the fender-bender and have been back on the road, but I was weary of travel and ready to throw in the towel. After working 14 to 16 hours a day while traveling on the wagon, 10 to 12 hour days at the Nuke Plant will seem like a piece of cake (Iíll have to find something to keep me busy with all the extra leisure time).
In other news, Chuck and Mary Reagan are still in Golden Valley, AZ, recovering from a devastating wagon fire. However, it seems that things are going pretty well for them. Home Depot in Kingman, AZ has volunteered to repair their wagon. Chuck has a job offer to teach people how to build metal casting molds, so they decided to stay put for three months, get everything repaired and build a road-stake.
