Ahhh, checking out the USA in the summertime. The crowds and road construction we're experiencing don't matter (ok, maybe a little). What we're seeing and experiencing in this part of the world more than makes up for it. A few days ago, we set up camp at a huge site in a convenient campground located in Grand Teton National Park. We ran around the park trying to squeeze in as much exploring as possible. We've since popped up to Yellowstone to do more of the same. The only frustration we're experiencing is over what to do next and squeezing it all in. Along the way, we're even doing a little advocating for the world's 1 billion hungry.
It's been so great out here, that we haven't minded feeling completely disgusting and even taking poor-mans-showers – using sinks in the McDonalds in Jackson. I don't know what's worse... feeling repulsive or using a public bathroom as a shower. I know, I know. It's gross.
We've had a couple of spectacular hikes that have served as ultimate activities along the way. They've reminded us of how lucky we are to be able to see the world this way – to have the opportunity to live deliberately.
To be able to maintain this awesome life, we're happily working along the way. When camping – and in the middle of nowhere – this takes a lot of strategizing.
