The plan is to leave early Monday morning. We will take four days to get to our destination: Fort Defiance, Arizona (near the New Mexico border and close to the capital of the Navajo Reservation).
- Monday. Leave Portland, stop at the Memphis Zoo, camp in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas
- Tuesday. Leave Arkansas, stop at museums in Muskogee (five Indian nations) and Enid (Chisholm Trail), Oklahoma. Get through the Texas Panhandle and camp in eastern New Mexico.
- Wednesday. Las Vegas, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Camp at El Morro National Monument.
- Thursday. Leave El Morro. Get to the Van Eyk residence.
Let me know what you think about this list. I haven't burned it to CD yet. I think I have plenty of cowboy songs, but my Indian songs are a little tacky to say the least.
