Without making any grand plans, Lou and I have managed to join up again. We just kept each other updated on our locations.
When I was in Green River, Utah, he was in Teton Valley, Idaho. When he was in Green River, I was in Monument Valley. When I was near Flagstaff, he was in Winslow. And while I was getting supplies in Cottonwood, he emailed that he was camped about halfway between Cottonwood and Sedona. Now we both are. Like old times.
