Beautiful Nowhere with no Transmission July 16, 2021

Kickin’ In The Dirt

After breaking the news to us that our camper transmission was a goner with no reverse gear and the other gears maybe not far behind, Michael, the mechanic, said it was time we did some “kickin’ in the dirt”. That is what cowboys do when standing together, staring at the ground and trying to decide what to do next. We are in the middle of beautiful nowhere with few resources, spotty cell reception, no real stores, and our summer home in the camper (all our clothes, books, cookware, linens, supplies for 3 months, etc.) The one thing we all agree on is that we want to keep going no matter what. So after some kickin’, talkin’, prayin’ and hikin’, we have decided to drive forward (because we still can) to St. George, 4 hours away, where a highly recommended transmission service can rebuild the transmission (with a full warranty) starting next Tuesday. While it is being repaired we’ll be living out of our van and tents with our 2 brave pups. My prayer is that this allows us to finish this amazing trip, that the weather will be decent, and that we’ll fall even more in love with each other and the beauty that surrounds us as our faith and peace grow daily watching the next series of miracles unfold.
