West Coast Spring 2018 – Yellowstone, Part One

August 1 – 5 Joanna and I decided to give the Super 8 breakfast a chance and although not world class, there were some edible pastries, yoghurt, and cereal (my only shot at eating Fruit Loops) that made it worth the stop.  In these situations, its best to avoid whatever those things they call eggs […]
