Summer of Love

Kasilof River, Alaska

Time to start for home. It's about 8,000 miles away. We should arrive by October or December. The return trip might include a stop for the Summer of Love concert in the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Country Joe will be there, but I think Jimi Hendrix, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia and Jim Morrison are all booked this time.

We're still here, though. Mrs. Phred is considering flying for the arrival of grandchild #6. Also she has an elderly friend in Miami who may require a few weeks of her assistance. Camping alone won't be the same.

Under the bridge the dead are gathering.
What happened to the ferryman, his bag
of coins, his pity? In all this traffic
how can they cross these girders of steel
and starlight?
