Splitting the blog   Leave a comment


I have decided to start several different blogs with different topics.  So beside Peripatetic Consultant look for Peripatetic Tourist and Peripatetic at Home.  I plan to copy some of the earlier blogs so that they are more easily sorted.  I also may split up the Peripatetic Consultant into geographic regions, e.g., Peripatetic Consultant – Kenya.

http://peripateticconsultantkenya.wordpress.com/ – Kenya

http://peripateticconsultanttogo.wordpress.com/ – Togo

http://peripateticathomeromania.wordpress.com/ – Romania

Day 4, Sunday, 27 May – Driving to UND   Leave a comment


Today we only had a couple of miles of interstate highway driving.  Almost the whole trip was on secondary US highways and state highways.  This is my favourite kind of driving.  The scenery was mainly farmland and pastureland with a few hills here and there.  However, the mostly flat terrain was broken up by the Missouri River.  Here are some pictures.

The next picture proves that we were there   : – )

Today was a shorter day.  We spent several hours with Darlene’s daughter, Gloria, and her husband, Frank, in Longmont, Colorado.  Geri, Howard and Darlene went to North Platte’s Bailey Rairoad Yard, which is the largest railroad yard in the world.  Here are some photos Geri took from the Golden Spike Observation Tower.

From about noon time on Friday until noon time on Saturday there was lower than normal visibility caused by smoke from forest fires.

Later in the day we stopped at a rest stop in New Mexico to use the bathrooms.  The buildings were up on stilts with an interesting sign.
