After leaving Vernal, we set out in search of Cold Stone ice cream. The nearest that suited our rig (a Ram 3500 pulling a trailer with 2 four wheelers, a job box filled with things we didn’t trust the government to store, baby gear, food storage, and whatever else we forgot to send the movers with or they refused to take) was in Park City, UT.
30min from the amazing ice cream shop we were diverted south to Provo to see Davies boy #5 Jeff where Zed ordained him as an elder in the Church. This needed to be done ASAP so Jeff could receive the Church’s ok to be sealed (married) in the temple this coming Saturday.
2hrs, a church ordinance, and 3 sleeping children later we made it to Draper where we enjoyed our Cold Stone. We only made it a few miles farther when we realized there was no way we would make it to the ranch tonight. We sought out a hotel and enjoyed a free night on Marriott (thanks for my anniversary present). If you’re ever near the Salt Lake Airport and need a place to stay, stay at the Springhill Suites. AMAZING hospitality. They let us park our rig at the front door so we could sleep without fear of something being stolen.
We woke around 2am for the last 8hrs to the ranch. Dax keep Zed awake talking about why the moon goes away sometimes (because it dips behind the mountains). Dax was convinced a baby snake kept eating it. We passed through Winnemucca, NV and everyone was now awake to entertain Zed those final 3 hours.
