Volume I : Chapter XI
This was a special day, our friend Blake and his father were kind enough to take us horseback riding up the hills just outside of Salt Lake City. We were just about to leave Salt Lake City after getting our car back (we cracked the oil pan) and this seemed like the perfect send off before we got back on the road. Blake is amazing, endearing. We found him through friends of friends we met buying beer at a gas station next to our room at the Motel 6. The first time he set eyes on us we were in his room shaking him awake because we had accidentally started a party at his house that he wasn't part of. He has let us move into his living room more than a few times, not trusting us with a key but letting us crawl through the window and come and go as we please. We even adopted a cat on his behalf.
Thank you so much for this, Blake.
