Travels, Day 2

After I posted my first day of my Mom's travel log, I received a couple of questions/requests. The main themes were why did you go to Guatemala and could you post more about Guatemala. The first would be relatively easy to answer. The other would be more difficult as my time in Guatemala was between 28 and 37 years ago and frankly my memories of that time are a little foggy. I will answer the first question later on in this series. The other, well, I'll have to think about it and see what I can recall.

In the mean time, our journey to Guatemala continues.
Date: 6-20-72
Place: Colorado Springs, Colorado
"Drove all day - left Kearney about 10:30. Arrived in Colorado Springs about 6:00. Mountains are hazy with low clouds and rain, though it never rained on us.
We stayed at Monument Lake Resort tonight. [Dad] + [Homer-Dog] went out on small lake in paddle boat. [Brother] watched TV. Weather is cool.
Had to find a dentist - I broke my false tooth - [Dr. C] had it fixed in an hour so not much of a delay."

I remember the part about the tooth but I remember it as part of another vacation. My roadtrips are blurring in my head which is to be expected after thirty-seven plus years. The paddle boat seems familiar as well but it's all hazy. I was closer to my Dad back then.


  1. Did you find pictures as well? I think a picture of little HD out in a paddle boat would be pretty cool to see...

  2. GH: I'm sure there are pictures somewhere and they will probably not surface anytime soon.
