Life is different for youngsters these days. My shipping clerk in Romeoville, IL the other day has never been to a ball game, Hockey game, a museum of any sort or a concert. She's never seen downtown Chicago or Lake Michigan. Just sits on the couch and plays video games and sometimes hangs out with friends.

I did all those things more than once. Well except for the concert thing. One was enough. If I remember right it cost $2.50 to see Hendrix.

The world can now end since I'll be off of it soon and the young have no interest in it.

Salt River Canyon in a Big Truck

This trip started off nice with a ride through the canyon but stopped being that way quickly. Nothing since then but miles and miles of miles and miles. One large concrete canyon (NYC) is always promising but there's no place to stop for fun.
