itinerary and lucubrations

For those who want to follow along on the map as Rebecca and I (and Becca's mom) travel the Wild Wild West, here's the tentative and gruelling schedule:

Sep 3rd: Fly to Seattle
Sep 4th-6th: in Seattle
Sep 7th: Seattle to Missoula, MT (475 miles)
Sep 8th: Missoula to Yellowstone (Mammoth Hot Springs) (284 miles)
Sep 9th: Within Yellowstone (Old Faithful Inn)
Sep 10th: South through the Grand Tetons to Dinosaur, CO (How can you not stay in a town named Dinosaur?) (395 miles)
Sep 11th: Dinosaur to Mesa Verde (332 miles) [Cortez, CO]
Sep 12th: Cortez to As-Far-As-We-Can-Stand-To-Drive, AZ (400-ish miles)
Sep 13th: AFAWCSTD to LA (400-ish miles)

This won't leave much time for sight-seeing, but the trip is the thing!

Finally, since it has been announced by someone with more right than I to announce it, I give you Lucubrations Lovecraftian, with the occasional blither from me. It's an experiment, it's Lovecraftian... what could be better than a Lovecraftian experiment?
