Tom's excited. The decorations are set and any minute a stream of vehicle headlights will be coming over Hurrah Pass for trick or treat.

Good To Be Home

Time To Go

As the fire and smoke recedes, Tom prepares to return to Moab. Kobae visits Auto Trader to share his knowledge of things that go fast and then visits Lockheed Martin to lend his expertise as to what he knows about flight and stealth.

The Fires

For one week Tom and Kobae wait and watch as the fires spread thru San Diego. The view from Let's Play corporate offices.

Kobae Returns to San Diego for the Winter

Kobae enjoys his first weekend back in San Diego. Heading for the slide, his favorite ride. Practicing camouflage should Nam flare up and Bishop and Chewey remind him where the Employee entrance to Let's Play Corporate headquarters is.

An Air Force Plane makes three low flying passes over the lodge and then continues up the river?

There are three types of water at the lodge. 1. Well water for wash, showers, and cleaning. 2. Spring water hauled in for drinking. 3. Rain water collected in cisterns for watering. Tom mentioned to Bill that the cisterns on the side of the lodge were unattractive. Bill solved it.

The Island

Looking north from above the south end of the island next to Base Camp.

That'll Leave A Mark(s)

When Kobae approached the wall, Tom didn't bother to take out the camera because he knew it was too high and too steep for any tortoise to climb. Tom looked up from his book and saw the claw marks to the top, and Kobae had moved on.


Kylie and Linny at Jacobs Ladder and later Linny returns from searching for the Red Baron.

Not Just Any Tortoise

It has been said that a tortoise can walk as much as one mile in a day. Kobae's journeys were 1.8 on Tuesday, 1.6 on Wednesday, and 2.8 on Thursday.
