“Go West, young man, go West. There is health in the country, and room away from our crowds of idlers and imbeciles.”
~~ reported conversation between Horace Greeley and Josiah Bushnell Grinnell in 1833 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_West,_young_man)
“Washington(DC) is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country.” ~~ written by Horace Greeley in 1861 (ibid)

Met you in 2012 at the Saratoga, WY campground. You took pics of my new Phoenix Pop up camper. Hope you are well and enjoying the journey. Happy New Year! Jeff Buck
We remember the meeting well! While we’ve been rushing about this winter season, we’re still at home in our camper! A belated happy New Year to you as well!
