My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

The overpass

On our drive to Colorado we had to go through an overpass in the mountains when leaving Utah. We were driving along ejoying the sharp curves and steep road conditions when we come up on a construction crew. Mia got stopped and the "flagger" came up to the car to talk. Mia just thought he was being a friendly guy on the couple minutes we'd be sitting there. BUT nope, turns out he IS a friendly guy and we talked for quite a while because we sat at that stop for over an hour! An hour!
Now for some that might seem "bad" and it did change some of our plans. There was an over turned Semi and the cranes that were brought in to right the error were blocking the whole road. Several truck drivers from behind us in line came up and we all stood around chatting about places we'd been. We got several recommendations on things to see. It turned out to be a great hour of socializing. After the hour plus of sitting, it took almost another 30 minutes to let the other traffic go and for us to get through the congested site.  Mia was excited when we saw clear road again and had to take a picture.

  1. Sounds like a stop worth stopping for. It's funny how things that would normaly annoy anyone can turn out to be a blessing. Now you may get to see something you never knew existed and have a blast doing it..Stay safe out there Taco and protect Mia from all harm we love her and want to keep her safe!! :)
