Never Allow Dave and Kirk On A Road Trip
When Kirk and I go on road trips we can be hazardous to the public. Kirk is more mellow and reserved. I am just whacked out. Put us together and we are hell on caffeine. Kirk is a nice guy and then I come around and he becomes a different creature from those who claim to know him as the nice guy at the government. Kirk showed me this palm at Wal-Mart. This is a needle palm. Found it for $20. It now sits in my yard. Thanks buddy. It was his passive aggressive behavior that led me to by this one.
This next photo I could not bring over so I linked to it. When we stopped in Green River, Utah we caught this dude filling up his plane at a gas station. He said he was from Eagle Mountain, Utah. What ever floats your boat.
Now some people do not believe that me and Kirk are actually environmentally friendly. This is not true. It is true that I like fossil fuels burning amass producing electricity. Kirk, I am not sure what he actually likes to see mechanical wise, but I digress. In this link you can see us actually hugging a tree. It is a beautiful trunk isn't it. The dude couldn't get his damn finger out of the way ruining the true effect. I tried to get Kirk to hug me, but he declined. No sense of humor!
This again is at Antelope Island. Notice the green bog in
The Mojave Desert brings the best out in both of us. On this trip we were in Moapa, Nevada in an area known as Warm Springs. Kirk thought that road trip means taking a picture of the road. Ansel Adams he is not, but I have to give him credit for actually capturing some palms on either side of the road.
Finally, to end this lovely entry when I went out to Colorado last year Kirk showed us Cherry Hill State Park which is an earlier entry in this blog of ours. But I thought it fitting to let you all know that the place is full of plains yucca. Plains yucca go from the Front Range of the Rockies east to the boring land of the Midwest US. At least there is something that is yucca in this post. Had I not lost my photos of Bennett, Colorado I would have included them, but my computer crashed and the Garden of the Gods one was one of the few that I had left.
Now I wish I had more time to give you the lowdown on the odd couple relationship that Kirk and I have on road trips. On one trip back from St. George, Utah a thunderstorm came in around Beaver, Utah. I screamed "Run for your life! Hurricane! Its the Apocalypse!" One mother and her kids got the hell out of there, Kirk nearly fainted, and I am not sure what came over me, but I am sure it was the adrenalin rush of caffeine.
