The whirlwind tour is relentless. The oppressive heat, and never ending hurdles we encounter are taking their toll on both of us. Saturday morning and we are driving through northeastern Wyoming. We swing over to Devil's tower in hopes to do some exploring. The heat is coming on fast. The jeep has been unhooked for two days straight now. It's 100° during the day and our injured Roo can' t handle the extra strain. The exhaust leak is getting worse. We press on to Buffalo Wyoming where we can spend the night at an RV park.
Deer Park campground is a welcome relief after the last few days. It's been 4 days since we have had hookups. Every night living on the side of the road or in a parking lot in an effort to pinch pennies for the trip to continue. Just to remind you, we don't have any income. This is our life savings we are blowing away.
The oasis of Deer Park is a real pleasant experience. The spunky lady behind the counter gives us the rundown and takes us to our sight. We set up and start getting ready for the night. Laundry day. Finally, laundry day. I look over at Katie and then turn towards the pool. She follows my eyes and immediately gets dressed for the water. Thirty minutes in the cold water is all we can manage. Back to the RV for a quick shower and to start the next load of laundry. Beer run? Yes please. Let's go all out tonight. We pick up a 6 pack of the local brew and a bottle of Vanilla Jim Beam for good measure. The rest of the night is spent cleaning the dust out of the RV and having a few beers. I on the other hand did not practice self control and cracked open the Jim Beam. I'll be paying for that on Sunday....
