The Call of the Wild

“. . . each day mankind and the claims of mankind slipped farther from him. Deep in the forest a call was sounding, and as often as he heard this call, mysteriously thrilling and luring, he felt compelled to turn his back upon the fire and the beaten earth around it, and to plunge into the forest, and on and on, he knew not where or why; nor did he wonder where or why, the call sounding imperiously, deep in the forest.” -jack london

             The Tufted Puffin
Lazy day today, laid in bed until both morning episodes of Fraizer were over then me and Sheila headed over to FUZZY'S TACOS for a late breakfast early lunch. After eating we put Sheila's beloved Miata on Craig's List to sell it. Yes she really does want to sell it! We have decided that once the doctor clears her for more than a couple weeks between treatments we are going to hit the road and see more of the country. We want to finish our AT hike and also see all the National Parks and also Alaska one more time. We want to take the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry all the way from Bellingham, Washington to Dutch Harbor, Alaska camping on the open deck, getting off and back on whenever we want. Now that we have seen the Whooping Cranes we think it is about time we see the Tufted Puffins! We also have been thinking once we sell her Miata we may also sell the Focus wagon and get a Subaru Outback all wheel drive wagon or ........maybe an old VW Westfalia Camper. Either way we want to get back to being homeless and free, living out some more adventures on the road and on the trails! Time again to EXPLORE- DREAM- DISCOVER !            After all.......  -Home is where you hang your food bag
