So, on the eve of our great Westward adventure, Kelly Robertson was getting a little nervous about the wild places we are driving into. Then she came across this in her morning reading from Isiah:
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
My translation: the Lord provides and the Dude abides.
— headed toward Montana.
