Orland or bust! (or, the R.A.W. rolls Westward ’til the wheels fall off . . .)

The Big Ass Family Roadtrip rolled the R.A.W. et al out of Carnesville on September 12, heading West for our destination of Orland: greener pastures and goldblack buttes in the Sacramento Valley of Northern California. We howled across the borders of nine American states in the old red Dodge–mountains and plains and deserts–with four asses, two dogs, two humans, and one cat. We arrived miraculously at the new farmstead, site-unseen, after seven days on the road. Now the Rural Alchemy Workshop begins the task of exploring our new environs – the rough magic of a whole new rural environment. Stay tuned.

And yes: the wheels did fall off. But only after we were safe in the new home. Milagro.
