Season Premier

Today begins a New Season Premier for us.  We've all grown up with two kinds of seasons--natural seasons like spring, summer, fall and winter--and TV seasons.  Back in the day, TV seasons renewed themselves around the same time each year.  Now TV seasons can begin anytime a network or cable producer decides to declare a Season Premier.

So, in that spirit, we are declaring a Season Premier today, April 29th.  Today's the day we return to Idaho after a long and eventful Arizona Season.  Our Arizona Season Finale sure has been fun.  We've taken longer to get north than all but two other such trips and they were way back in 2004 and 2006.  Since we started the annual yo-yo between Idaho Falls and Rimrock, we've typically taken two days each way, sometimes three.  So this casual trip is a real treat.  We will have been out 9 nights before crossing the line back into Tater Nation.  We fully expect a Royal Welcome from Tater Nation Ruler King Tot and Queen Curly Fry as we roll out our Idaho Season Premier.

We are really looking forward to our Sunday Drive through the gauntlet they call Salt Lake City.  It's a full 100 miles through that gauntlet.  We can't remember the last time we drove it on a Sunday morning.  Maybe we never have but we think we did at least once.  That's where we got the idea that it was a good thing to do.

We're still not sure what we are doing once we get through the tough parts of the metro area.  Right now we are talking about driving back to 12th Street today to camp in our own back yard.  That would be a fitting touch for our Idaho Season Premier, don't you think?

Have a great day & Many Cheers!  jp
