Day 14 Golden

Golden, Golden, Golden. Yep we are still in Golden. Got up early and drove back to Heather Mountain. Waited three hours in pouring rain and fog before we decided to give today a miss. This road takes no prisoners. Only two ways through the Rockies so the traffic is concentrated on the mountain passes making conditions very serious. I just have to wait this storm out.

Anyway on our return to town Rob was happy with a beer. I on the other hand went in search of giant choc buttons. After trying several stores I found some in an aptly named store - Overwaitea!!! Choc buttons opened outside Overwaitea - no guilty feeling there. Sadly they just don't taste like ours - really struggled to eat the whole pack before getting back to hotel! Feel quite ill now but not very good at sharing! Can you believe that name!

Hi Jo, Sarah here (Anna and Nigel's daughter) dad has just told me about your trip whilst on Skype so i thought i'd check out your progress. i'm so amazed that you have taken on such a massive challenge but very proud. i really empathize with your story of why you are doing the trip. Hope the saddle sore is bearable...plenty of vasaline!
As you are probably aware we are now out in the middle east living in a crazy place called Al Ain in the middle of the UAE..in the desert!! well we did want an adventure..its ticking all the right boxes so far but a few frustrations along the way.
I'll keep checking in on you..good luck with the next few days. Say hello to Rob, James and Charlotte.
Love Sarah
