I Wish He’d Learn (Alaska Highway KP 627, British Columbia, Canada)

You’d think he’d learn – God knows we’ve been through this enough times…

Every couple of months John somehow gets into that “gotta-get-up-at-five-o’clock-in-the-morning” phase.  He wakes us all up bright and early, we cycle for a few hours, then the kids fall asleep and we sit and wait.  It makes no sense to me.

So – yesterday morning John declared we HAD to leave the hot springs by six o’clock.  He woke us up early, we all crawled sleepily out of the tent, and got on the road.

This morning he did the same.

At noon we wearily pulled into the Toad River Lodge.  Davy ate his burger, then curled up on the chairs and passed out.  We sat there for nearly three hours letting him catch up on the sleep he should have gotten at night.  Fortunately, they had wi-fi so we were able to get a bunch of work done while waiting, so it wasn’t too bad.

I just wish John would finally “get it”.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
