We received bad news several weeks ago. Marshal's sister just older than he was dying of cancer. We knew that she had it, but did not know how bad she really was. So we talked and decided to make the trip to Temple, Texas to see her one last time. We left home on March 1st headed southeast. Weather was good, mostly sunny, but still some cold temps. No storms at all, which was good. Knowing that we were making a long trip in a short time, we hit the road early in the morning. And ya'll know me and mornings, but I was able to get up and get ready. Our plan was to make at least 500 miles a day. Total mileage was around 1500 to Temple, Tx. First night was spent at Laramie, Wy. Not quite 500 miles, but pretty darn close. The weather was still holding out, which was fine with us. Took some pictures of the snow across Wyoming. Not as much as there could possible, but enough on the higher elevations. As we traveled across Wyoming, realized that we could be in Boise City, Ok for the second night. Having friends there, know that we could find a place to park for the night.
